4 Tips to Get the Best Sleep

4 Tips to Get the Best Sleep

Getting a better night’s sleep is something everyone strives for, but many of us fall short and wake up each morning feeling less rested than we want. It may seem like making changes to improve your sleep will require major changes to your nightly routine, but that’s not the case. There are subtle changes you can make that can have a big impact on improving your sleep. At Eco Medical, our goal is for everyone to get as much rest as possible. With these tips, you can put yourself to a better night’s sleep. 

Positioning is Key 

While your sleeping position may not directly impact the quality of your sleep, it can directly impact your health while you’re awake. Each sleeping position has its benefits and drawbacks. But if you’re waking up each morning with back or neck pain, it could be due to your sleeping position. To improve your posture while you sleep, using something as simple as a bed wedge can be a simple change that drastically improves the quality of your sleep.  

Set a Sleep Schedule 

Getting yourself into a normal routine is a great way to train your body’s circadian rhythms to improve how you sleep. The theory is simple, by going to bed at the same time each night, you are training your body to be prepared to sleep at that time. Eventually, you’ll naturally feel tired and ready to fall asleep each night when you get into bed.  

Skip the Naps 

Another key to sleep schedules is to limit long naps during the day which can disrupt your sleep cycle and make it much harder to fall asleep when you want to at night. While a short nap may be helpful for productivity, anything over 30 minutes is likely to affect how you sleep that night.  

Limit Screen Time Before Bed 

Our smartphones are wonderful tools that help us access information as fast as our fingers can move. In fact, when it comes to sleeping, smartphones are almost too much of a good thing. It’s easy to go down a rabbit hole watching videos or checking social media before you go to bed. But your smartphone and other electronics use blue light that can inhibit how your body processes melatonin, which can make it harder to fall asleep. So, if you want more rest, leave your phone on the nightstand.  

Making these small changes can cause a lot of improvement in your sleep. If you have any more questions, please contact Eco Medical to speak with our team.
