How To Get More Sleep

Posted on: November 9, 2008


Do you find yourself dozing off while you’re driving, at work or in class? Are yawns becoming your main method of speaking? If you answered yes, then you may have trouble sleeping. The average person is supposed to have 6 to 8 hours a sleep a night, to let your body and mind become fully rested. However, due to multi-tasking (career, education, family, etc.), that amount may not fit into the average woman’s schedule. If you’re looking for new ways to fall asleep quicker, here a few suggestions.

1) No Caffeine before 2.pm. We all know that people pick up a “cup-of-joe” every morning to wake up and prepare their selves for the day, because the caffeine give so much energy. So, it would be obvious not to have any coffee or anything that has caffeine before you sleep so you will not be so wired you can’t close your eyes for a moment.

2)Exercise. It may seem weird, since we exercise to become energized but it can also help you fall asleep faster. Since after exercising you may feel fatigued and tired, it lowers your energy level. You’re next task might be to take a nap after excising to rest. According to Elite Feet. com, “Those who exercise sleep better. People who do some form of regular exercise sleep an average of 42 minutes longer than those who don’t and they falls asleep 12 minutes faster.”

3) Finish your “to-do” tasks during the day. If you procrastinate home/school tasks to your bedtime, chances are you won’t have a good night’s sleep. If you have free time in the morning (with no distractions), you can finish all your chores then, leaving you more time for sleep.
