Good Nights Rest!
Changes in our sleeping patterns are a natural part of the aging process. As we age, we tend to have a more difficult time falling asleep and staying asleep. Give yourself an opportunity for a restful night of sleep by considering the three following tips.
1. A Bed of Roses
The Better Sleep Council recommends replacing your mattress every seven to 10 years, depending on your comfort level and support it provides. The life of a mattress varies greatly depending on how you care for it.
2. Winding Down
It is widely recognized the glow of electronics impairs our sleep, but it’s sometimes hard to put them down. The blue light emitted by cell phones, tablets, and televisions have been noted to restrain the production of melatonin. Shut them down an hour before bed. Give yourself some time to breathe deeply, stretch, and let go of the stresses of the day.
3. Diet and Exercise
Avoiding large meals before bedtime, as well as caffeinated and sugary drinks, has long been understood to help ease one into sleep. Eating smaller meals closer to bedtime, and larger ones earlier in the day, allows your body less to digest. Exercise can improve your sleep quality and increase sleep amounts.
When to Seek Professional Help
Although many sleep issues can be dealt with through simple changes in your sleep routine, it may be time to consult a professional if you’re experiencing long-term symptoms that last longer than four weeks or interfere with your daytime activities.
Taking a look at your sleep-prep patterns can go a long way in discovering ways you’re able to make changes to help you sleep longer.
