How to Create a Sleep Routine
For most people across the nation, the impact of COVID-19 may be hurting more than just the economy. As many people are confined to their homes for extended periods, the sleep cycles they had previously developed are likely becoming more erratic. However, once the threat of the virus is gone and things start to return to normal, this could become an ongoing problem. If you are preparing to return to work soon, here are some easy ways to create a sleep routine that will help achieve your goals.
Disconnect from Tech
Modern technology may be keeping you from falling asleep at a decent time. One of the most common reasons that this happens is because of the blue light emitted by most electronic devices including your cellphone, laptop and television. By disconnecting from technology a few hours before bed, you can also let your brain begin to wind down and eliminate common stimuli that may be keeping your mind racing.
Create a Schedule
Going to bed at the same time each night and forcing yourself to wake up at the same time each morning is arguably one of the most important aspects of a good sleep routine. While it’s easy to get into bed and wind down at the same time each night, it is important to use an alarm to wake up at the same time each morning, even on weekends, with the use of an alarm. This will help adjust your internal clock to make your sleep routine more consistent.
Improve Your Bedroom
Making your bedroom comfortable for a great sleep experience can help eliminate issues that could be hindering both your sleep quality and ability to fall asleep quickly. Some of the easiest ways to do this are to ensure that you have the appropriate mattress while also investing in comfortable pillows, sheet sets and minimal technology. The focus of your bedroom should be sleeping, any other technology or devices that are there could be hindering that.
