Check out the Top 10 ways to achieve better sleep in 2024 below, and enter to win! —Vita Daily

10 Steps to Achieve Better Sleep in the New Year

  1. Create a Tranquil Sleep Haven: Transform your bedroom into an oasis of calm by dimming lights, maintaining a cool temperature, and investing in blackout curtains to create an ideal sleep environment.
  2. Tech Timeout Ritual: Set a bedtime alarm an hour before sleep to signal the start of winding down. Power off electronic devices since the blue light emitted can disrupt your natural sleep-wake cycle, making it challenging to fall asleep.
  3. Establish a Consistent Pre-Sleep Routine: Develop a regular pre-sleep routine involving activities such as reading, gentle stretching, meditation, a soothing bath, and even using a pillow sleep spray to signal to your body that it’s time for rest.
  4. Mindful Eating Habits: Avoid heavy meals, caffeine, and excess liquids close to bedtime. Opt for a light snack if hungry and ensure hydration earlier in the day to minimize nighttime bathroom trips. Cut off caffeine intake by 3 pm.
  5. Invest in Quality Sleep Essentials: Upgrade your sleep gear with a comfortable mattress, quality bedding, and a supportive pillow, such as Henrie’s adjustable pillow for a transformative sleep experience.
  6. Nap Smart: Embrace short power naps while avoiding long ones, particularly in the late afternoon, as they can disrupt your natural sleep patterns.
  7. Exercise Regularly, But Early: Engage in regular physical activity, but complete intense workouts earlier in the day. Exercise promotes better sleep, but doing it too close to bedtime can have an adverse effect.
  8. Stress Management Techniques: Practice stress-reducing techniques like meditation, deep breathing, or mindfulness to calm the mind before bedtime.
  9. Stick to a Sleep Schedule: Set a consistent wake-up time every day, even on weekends. Use a silent, vibrational alarm to prevent a spike in cortisol and maintain a steady sleep routine.
  10. Upgrade Your Pillow for Personalized Support: Evaluate your current pillow and consider upgrading to one that provides personalized support, like Henrie’s adjustable pillow. Its blend of CertiPUR-US memory foam and premium kapok caters to all body types and sleeping positions, ensuring optimal neck support.

    Don’t be on your phone before bed. It’ll keep you up longer than you intend.
