3 Ways To Sleep Better Tonight

DP

Most of you will know that eating healthy and regular exercise are very important for your weight loss goals to come true, however did you know there is a third important element to this?… Sleep.

For a lot of you this may come as a surprise, but I’m here to tell you if you’ve been overlooking the importance of sleep you know… few hours only, playing video games into the wee hours or getting (god forbid) no sleep at all! You’ll be kicking yourself once you have seen this video below.

 

 

If you’d like to know more in depth about the scientific studies about the importance sleep then please (Click Here)

 

Your chances of weight gain with a lack of sleep will increase both as an adult and a child, plus an increased chance of disease. Whereas, if you get  a great night’s sleep, you will eat less, workout better and be so much healthier and happier.

So if you are still reading this and it seems like something you want to pursue for your health and well being, then without  further ado….. 

 

Here are 3 ways to sleep better tonight.

 

THE ROCK WAKE UP

Wake Up At A Consistent Time- This is very important for better quality of life let alone for your weight loss goals! As your body needs to get into a rhythm so it can align itself with the sunrise and the sunset.

Being consistent with your sleep and waking up / going to bed on time will in the long term boost your sleep quality, and as I said above improve your quality of life and you’ll see some weight loss progress being made.

The weekend will either make you or break you. I say this because on weekends as a whole we seem to go to bed later at night, which then leads to us getting up way later than planned!

Don’t make this amateur mistake thinking you can make up for it in the coming days, it’s never paid off before has it?  Every time you feel worse, you look worse and everything you do now when awake is affected because of it.

When you become consistent during the week and on weekends, and slay that urge to have a late night weekend… you’re going to be way ahead of the pack who are just rolling the dice with their fingers crossed, and that’s no way to live a good life now is it?

 

No caffine

Don’t Drink Caffeine In The Evening- Caffeine has many benefits such as enhancing your focus & giving you energy. Something you should be aware of though when consumed during the evening time, studies show that there is high chance of your body not being able to relax at night.

I did a little digging and in one study, if you consume caffeine up to six hours before bed  it significantly destroys your sleep quality.

In general caffeine stays elevated in the blood for 6 to 8 hours. So therefore, drinking large amounts of coffee in the evening time or even late afternoon is not advisable.

It amazes me how many people who are caffeine sensitive or have trouble sleeping still drink caffeine, especially coffee which keeps you up!

DID YOU KNOW?: A fun fact for you – Caffeine is consumed by 90% of the US population.

 

BLUE LIGHT EXPOSURE

Reduce Blue Light Exposure In The Evening- Exposure to the light during the day is vital, but not so much during the night.

Being exposed to blue light during the night essentially tricks your brain into thinking that it’s still daytime. This then reduces hormones like melatonin, which is the hormone that helps you relax and unwind for that deep sleep you’ve been craving.

So for that reason blue light is the worst in that regard, with so many electronic devices like Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops and computers. Luckily I know of some ways to help you fight back against the blue light in the night time….

 

For Laptops & Computers: you can download an app called F.lux (Click Here) this helps block out the blue light. I have personally used this myself since 2014 and I’ve not looked back since. No more strained eyes or bad sleep because I was in the dark with a bright blue light beaming into my eyes. When the sun sets so does your laptop and computer. It’s really cool when you think of it like that, and you’ll see the difference in your sleep with this app.

 

For Smartphones: As of this year I found an app for my Smartphone called Twilight (Click Here) (Just like the movie with the vampires). Credit to them; so far so good, this has benefited me because I’m now able to have the choice to use my Smartphone more frequently if I choose to… rather than avoiding using it when the sunsets because of the blue light.

 

For TV: I’m hearing about people starting to  wear glasses in the evening time whilst watching TV, but I’ve not  tried  this out personally yet… as for one thing, I’m not really into watching TV and certainly not enough in the evening time to want to wear glasses and  secondly, watching TV 2 hours before heading to bed  with the blue light exposure is bad for your health.

DID YOU KNOW?: It will take you 2 to 3 days to get used to  F.lux (Click Here) as the screen gives  off a red light instead of the blue one you have become accustomed to.

Not to worry though, after the 2 to 3 days, you’ll not notice a thing and other people will just randomly say “Hey how come your screen is red?” and you’ll be like |” Huh really?… oh it’s that app F.Lux” etc.

 

THAT’S IT!

I really enjoyed sharing with you 3 ways to sleep better tonight.

Please do let me know though…

  45. Gelsomina Conte says:

    I never really had trouble sleeping until recently. Now, it takes me an hour normally to wind-down, which I usually use to solve whatever problems I’m having. When I think about it, it probably happened about the same time that I purchased a new TV. Where previously, I would read a book or watch TV on my old humble TV.

    Anyway, I’m looking forwards to trying this. If the blue light from the TV is keeping me up, this will save me at least an hour a day. And I like that I can easily test it with the glasses.

  46. Natsuo goda says:

    Your tips have helped me hour rest more. Thank you so much!

  47. Michael Frank says:

  48. Siert Mennink says:

    The glasses I wear in the evening time are amber ones, they really help to block out the blue light from the television screen.

    I’ve been wearing glasses in the evening time for years now. Whilst watching TV and let me tell you It’s very effective, but at the start its hard to remember to put them on and it takes time to get use to it.

    I strongly recommend you give it a go those of you who don’t wear them.
