1.Make Your Bedroom A No TV Zone

One of the biggest mistakes most people make is having a television in their bedrooms. Even though you may fall asleep watching it, the sounds and voices are getting into your subconscious. Since you can't control the content while you are asleep, your brain is picking up signals from voice tones such as anger, anxiety, and more. Make your bedroom a no tv zone!

2.Get On A Schedule

The best thing you can do to promote sleep is to get on a schedule. Going to bed the same time every evening, sets your inner clock to begin to wind down after a certain hour. By sticking to this time, or close to it, your body will naturally fall asleep on its own every night about that time. Try to get at least eight hours of sleep each night, and it is best to go to bed before midnight.



3.Limit Caffeine

Caffeine is a known stimulant, and everyone knows not to drink it too close to bed time, but for some who are sensitive to caffeine, even an afternoon coffee can trigger a disruption in sleep. Caffeine is also found in chocolate and cola, as well as those energy drinks everyone seems to love. Limit caffeine any time after 2pm.

4.Limit Alcohol Consumption After A Certain Hour

A glass of wine before bed can certainly take the edge off and lull you into sleep, but drink too many, or worse yet, drink hard alcohol, and you may be up all night. While you may fall asleep as a result of the drinking, you may soon awaken as the sugar content hits your system, and you may have a few hours on your hands before you can fall asleep again.



5.Turn Off Your Computer

Scientific evidence points to the backlight emitting from computers as being a stimulant to the brain. People often take their laptop or tablet to bed with them, to read, do a puzzle, watch videos or get their news, but the light from these devices can actually make it hard to fall asleep afterward. Instead, choose a good old-fashioned book, or crossword puzzle.

6.Avoid Naps Too Late In The Day

Naps can invigorate the body, and actual help you sleep better at night as well, but if your nap is taken too close to bed time, it can have the opposite affect. If you feel tired, and want to stretch out for a cat nap, make sure it's at least 5 hours before your regular bedtime.



7.Avoid Big Meals Too Close To Bedtime

When the body is digesting, it's working. All that work can stimulate the body, making it hard to fall asleep. A full stomach can also be uncomfortable, and laying down may cause indigestion and heartburn, further delaying sleep. As the saying goes, you should eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.

Everyone experiences stress in their lives, and may even lose a night or two of sleep over it. However, chronic stress can wreak havoc on your sleep cycle. What's more, the less sleep you get the harder it is to manage your stress, creating a viscous circle. Yoga and meditation may help.
