Can’t sleep? Well neither can the rest of America. The truth is, there are many factors that go into sleeplessness and we are all suffering from them on a nightly basis. Here are some of the main culprits:
Caffeine – Work stinks, we know. But that fourth cup of coffee after three o clock isn’t doing you any favors. Too much caffeine makes us jittery, wired, and of course, prevents us from getting a good night’s sleep.
Pain – From joint pain to allergies, bodily discomfort often prevents people from getting the night’s rest they need and deserve.
Bed Comfort – If you find yourself tossing and turning regularly, it’s because your body is feeling strained and uncomfortable and is attempting to reach a state of comfort and equilibrium.
Electronics – If you’re glued to your television, laptop, or mobile device when in bed, you’re not doing yourself any favors. In fact, you’re only keeping your brain and body awake for longer than it needs to be.
So what to do? Here are a few tips to help you catch a few more Zzs in future sleeping endeavors:
Unplug – Before bed, commit to unplugging and staying away from all electronic devices. Instead, read a book or write in your journal.
Caffeine Free – Avoid caffeine from the early afternoon on. If you really need a caffeine fix, try tea instead of coffee.
Exercise – After a long workout, bodies are tired and more apt to sleep naturally.
Invest in an Electric Bed – Okay, we know we told you to stay away from electronics but this one is different. Electric adjustable beds provide the comfort needed to get a quality and consistent night’s rest, no matter what. Electric adjustable beds can be set at any incline you need, so no matter what, it’ll find and lock in the right and most comfortable position. Good references.
