A study from the Better Sleep Council says better sleep may be the key to making 2018 goals stick. (They would say that, of course).
The Council is offering these tips for making the most of sleep time:
- Make daily sleep appointments. Develop a routine in which you go to bed at the same time and wake up at the same time every day. Don't let social media or work distract you, and when it's bedtime, go to sleep no matter what.
- Create a great bed for great sleep. If you're not waking up refreshed every day, it's time to examine your mattress and decide if you need a new one.
- Keep it cool, even in the winter. A comfortable sleeping temperature is between 65 and 67 degrees, so turn on an air conditioner or lower the thermostat before bed to make the room right for you.
- Try yoga. Practice yoga before bed to de-stress after your day, relax your muscles and bring your body to a restful state before hitting the hay.
