Sleep Tips At Bedtime
Ways to Fall Asleep Faster
We started with
sleep tips and then
sleep tips in bed.
And now we continue with sleep tips at bedtime.
Ready For Bed
- Take a vow of abstinence. There is a flip side to this
tip. It is well known that men tend to fall asleep immediately
after sex, and there is a reason for this. Sex releases an
endorphin in men making us want to rest, or sleep. If you have
a partner, and you are intimate on a regular basis, we do not
recommend you change a thing, in fact, you are probably not even
reading this because lack of sleep is not a problem for you.
- Let’s get physical. No, I’m not necessarily talking about that.
Jogging works too. Exercise is conducive to sleep because it puts
strain on the body. When you physically engage your body, your brain
will compensate for this by increasing the length of the deep sleep
stage. The best time to exercise is late afternoon or early evening.
This is so the ensuing drop in body temperature will coincide with
your designated bedtime.
- Don’t eat heavy meals in the evening. Your digestive system
slows down during the night, so your system will use a lot of energy
digesting late meals—energy that should have been used to rejuvenate
your body! So, avoid heavy eating before bedtime.
- Take a steaming hot bath for around 20-30 minutes. Taking a hot
bath will provide a quick rise in body temperature followed by a
drop. You should take a bath around two hours before bedtime so the
drop in body temperature will coincide with your designated bedtime.
Taking a bath more than two hours before bedtime may only make it
more difficult to fall asleep since body temperature may still be
- Get off soft drinks. Most soft drinks contain caffeine—the
bottom line is that you should moderate soft drink consumption, or
stop it completely.
