HOW TO CONSTRUCT YOUR DAY FOR BETTER SLEEP

HOW TO CONSTRUCT YOUR DAY FOR BETTER SLEEP

Alarm. Shower. Coffee. Train. Work. Lunch. More coffee. Gym. Evening out. Catch up on social media. Fall into bed far too late. Struggle to get to sleep. Repeat until the weekend - and then be too exhausted to do anything.

Is the pressure at both ends of the day bending your sleep out of shape?  Getting a good night’s sleep doesn’t mean doing less – it means doing things at the right time. Try these schedule changes.

WORKOUT WHEN IT WORKS FOR YOU

Some people find that a workout wakes them up. Others find it a great way to de-stress and wind down later in the day. Because you Hussle, you can fit in a morning or lunchtime workout. Or finish your day in the gym. With so many late opening or 24 hour gyms it has never been easier to fit in fitness when it suits you.

GO EASY ON THE CAFFEINE

Caffeine is a stimulant and that means less sleep. Reschedule coffees for ‘before lunch only’ and try to cut down too. Go for decaf or red-bush tea and limit the evening chocolate squares.

GET THE RIGHT LIGHT

Your phone may be indispensable, but it throws out blue light and that tricks your body into staying awake. Try to set a ‘screen-off’ deadline of at least an hour before bedtime. An old fashioned alarm clock removes temptation and does just the same job in the morning.

BE CONSISTENT

It may seem contradictory, but a good aid to sleep is to lose the weekend lie-in. Why? Because it makes you ‘jet lagged’ and makes that Monday feeling much worse. Yes, have a short snooze, but don’t waste too much of the morning under the duvet. Weekends are precious free time.

Do things a little differently. You could sleep much better.
