Turn off and avoid electronics for at least one hour before bed
We live in a world where technology is king and it dominates our lives. We spend countless hours looking at screens, whether it is a t.v., cell phones, tablets, artificial lights, or computers. The blue light from these devices can affect your nervous system ultimately affecting your sleep. It will bother some people more than others.
Avoid alcoholic beverages before bed
Not drinking alcoholic beverages before bed could also help you with your sleep. Alcohol is a central nervous system depressant. An imbalance in the nervous system can affect your body’s ability to fall asleep and stay asleep.
Have a scheduled bedtime and wake up time
Having a bedtime and wake up routine can help train your body to know when to fall asleep and when to wake up. Many people are able to fall asleep and wake up right before their alarm over time after developing this as a habit.
Get your nervous system checked
