How have you been sleeping? Do you wake up in your West Bellfort apartments feeling refreshed, revitalized and reinvigorated? If you’re like most of the American population, the answer is probably no. It takes a lot of effort to get a good night’s sleep, and most people would rather do just about anything else.
Your favorite Netflix show is on whenever you want it to be on, even if that means clicking “Next Episode” at midnight. We all live much busier lives than our parents did, and sleep is often the first thing to get sacrificed in the name of productivity. With all these things working against our sleep schedule, how can we get enough rest to keep our minds and bodies healthy?
The answers, residents, are in the blog post below. Give it a read, and be sure to share the link to this post with your friends and neighbors at your community of luxury apartments in Richmond.
Buy a real alarm clock
This is the simplest thing you can do, and we promise it will have a positive effect on the quality of your sleep. If you have a real alarm clock, you can leave your phone in the other room when you go to bed. Just having your phone next to your bed has a negative effect on your sleep, whether it’s because of the temptation to scroll through social media or the fact that most phones emit small lights when they get a notification. Little lights have big effects on the quality of your sleep, so go old school and buy an alarm clock.
Splurge on an awesome pillow
You probably don’t think about your pillows too much. They’re soft enough, they’re just kind of there, and they get the job done, right? We encourage you to start thinking about your pillows the same way you think about your shoes. You spend all day in your shoes, so you never want to skimp on quality just to save a few bucks. The same goes for your pillows, except you spend all night on them instead.
Develop a bedtime routine
We all the have the routine of brushing our teeth, washing our faces and going to bed, but there’s something to be said for taking that routine a step further. Maybe you take a hot bath or shower before bed every night, or maybe you spend 20 minutes reading in bed before you turn off the lights. Either way, developing a routine like this will remind your body that it’s time to start shutting down.
Don’t eat before bed
After you eat, your body has to go to work digesting the food. It’s hard for your body to fall asleep when it’s working like that. Plus, lying down after you eat is a good way to get really nasty heartburn. Avoid these issues by avoiding food in the two hours before you plan on going to bed.
