Sleep is a very important part of our health, and especially in 2020.
I love sleep, and I hate when I go to bed hoping to get a nice full night of sleep, and end up waking up a bunch and not feeling rested when I get up.
Apparently, I’m not alone when it comes to not getting great sleep all the time. A study that came out in March found that less than half of American adults get the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep. I never think too much I work out
nto why I wouldn’t be sleeping well, but these reasons definitely make sense.
What you do, or don’t do leading up into bedtime can make a big difference in your sleep.
Here’s a list of things doctors say NOT to do before going to bed:
- Don’t watch the news
- Avoid working in bed
- Don’t work out
- Don’t have tense conversations
- Don’t drink caffeine
- Don’t drink alcohol
- Try to limit your technology use
- Don’t turn your lights on bright
- Try not to spend too long awake while in bed.
