Trouble getting your beauty sleep? Try these tips!

Getting enough sleep each night is important in order to maintain your skin’s youthful appearance, keep your body weight in check and have energy throughout the day. Consider these calming, soothing tips to help you fall asleep faster and wake up feeling rested.

Unplug for the Night: Many people have trouble sleeping well thanks to constant beeps and buzzes from their electronic or communication devices. Turn off any phones or computers each night, which will be helpful in relaxing. In addition, the lack of blinking lights can help you fall asleep faster.

Exercise: Exercising during the day will help you sleep better at night. Even a short 20 minute power walk in the morning can play a role in helping you fall asleep faster each night. However, some people report that working out directly before bedtime prevents fatigue, so avoid late night exercise if possible.

Avoid Stimulant Drinks Before Bed: Few people can deny that sipping a caffeinated drink before bed has an adverse effect on the quality of sleep for the night. Keep in mind that caffeine is best avoided for several hours before sleeping. While alcohol is sometimes suggested as a way to cause tiredness before bed, alcohol actually disrupts sleep throughout the night and may cause you to wake up in the morning feeling unrested. Therefore, a shot before bed is not at all advisable.

Use Relaxation Techniques: Use different techniques to relax before bedtime; enjoy a warm bath, hot cup of decaffeinated herbal tea or even a few pages of a relaxing novel.

By trying these tips, it will be easier to fall asleep each evening, stay asleep all night, and wake up feeling well rested and ready to face the day.
