Sleeping directly influences your overall wellbeing. It can have an impact on your physical and mental health during your waking hours. It is so influential that we can easily tell when someone has not slept well.

Despite the huge influence it has on us, many of us still struggle with sleeping. I know I certainly do. Here are some simple and easy to put into practice tips and tricks for getting a better nights sleep.

#1 Avoid caffeine later in the day

Caffeine has a long half-life, approximately 6-8 hours, which can have a drastic effect on sleep if you are someone who drinks caffeine later in the day. Finish your caffeine at least 6 hours before bed, but the longer that time frame is the better off you will be.

#2 Exercise, especially earlier in the day

This will help balance hormones and set you up to sleep well at the end of the night. If you exercise later in the day, keep the exercise lighter in intensity so you can still wind down and fall asleep when the time comes.

#7 Use alcohol cautiously

Alcohol depresses the nervous system, so a nightcap may help some people fall asleep. But this effect disappears after a few hours and may lead to waking up throughout the night. Alcohol can also worsen snoring and other sleep breathing problems.

#8 Get the best pillow you can afford

My personal preference is a really nice, medium density down pillow or down imitation pillow. This allows you to “custom“ mold the pillow around your face. You want a pillow that supports your neck and shoulder, but keeps your face free so you can breathe! Pre-molded memory foam pillows don’t always conform to YOUR face and body.

#14 Eat raw honey before bed

If you find you tend to wake up around the same time every night it could be when your body starts to get hungry again, check and see if it's around 8 hours after your last meal. To solve this eat some raw honey before bed, it digests nice and slowly and gives your stomach enough to see you through to the morning.

#16 Consider using an eye mask

Block out all the extraneous light that comes in through your partially opened eyes (yard lights, street lights, neighbor’s security lights, cell phone charger lights, telephone battery lights, fire alarm battery signal, etc.). I specifically recommend Bucky’s eye mask, because if it’s unique padding around the eye which holds it off your eyelids.
