Suggestions for a Better Nights Sleep
Getting a good nights rest is very important and many people just aren't getting enough rest. SERVPRO of Lenoir, Duplin and Jones Counties would like to offer these simple tips to get that rest we all need. It takes planned efforts on the part of adults who are falling short of seven hours of sleep each night. The following are some simple ways for adults to start getting more rest.
- Stick to the same routine seven nights a week. Most people tend to change their sleep patterns depending on what day of the week it is. Not many people can say they go to bed early and wake up early on weekends. Going to bed the same time each day, including weekends, can help us feel more sleepy at bedtime and fall asleep quicker.
- Avoid alcohol in the hours before going to bed. Alcohol can make people feel sleepy, but not for long. That sleepy feeling wears off quickly causing interrupted sleep.
- Avoid caffeine and nicotine since they both stimulate your nervous system, making it harder to fall asleep. So, skip that late night coffee or cigarette before going to bed.
- If you can, take short daytime naps. By doing this, it my reduce your stress level throughout the day, hopefully making it easier for you to fall asleep at bedtime.
Getting a good nights sleep could have a positive impact on a persons quality of life. By developing good sleeping habits, it will more than likely help sleep-deprived adults get the restful sleep their body needs. We, at SERVPRO of Lenoir, Duplin and Jones Counties, want our employees to get their needed rest so we can be our our best to serve you 24/7.
