6 Amazing Tips to A Good Nights Rest

Many college students are having difficulties falling asleep at night. Instead of sleeping and dreaming they roll around in their beds trying to fall asleep. The result usually is students not rested enough in the morning and tired all day throughout their classes. This results in stress and less performance on school or at work. We have developed a list of 6 amazing tips to a good nights rest for students.

1. Room Temperature

Keeping the temperature in your bedroom at 70 degrees Fahrenheit or below is recommended. Too often an overheated bedroom is causing sleep problems. Some people like to sleep is a room that is a little colder. Scientific studies show that the body can better relax with temperatures at 70 degrees or slightly below.

2. Reduce Caffeine

A recent study showed that caffeine is not metabolized efficiently and fast enough at night. The effects of caffeine last much longer than most people expect and the result is difficulty falling asleep. Studies have shown better sleeping patterns if no caffeine is consumed after 6.00 PM.

3. Avoid Alcohol

Alcohol will keep the body from reaching the deeper stages of sleep, where the body does most of its healing and resting. The result of drinking can be a very light sleep or difficulty falling asleep in general.

4. Beds Are For Sleeping

If you are used to watch TV in bed or even work while being in bed, you may find it much harder to relax and fall asleep. Sleep requires your brain to slowly shutdown and any distraction will cause sleeping problems. Remove the TV and don’t work in bed and you will see better results.

5. Go to Bed At Around the Same Time Every Day

Don’t change your bedtime back and forth. Having a certain schedule developed it will be easier to fall asleep pretty much at the same time every day. A recurring schedule will help your body to get into a sleep pattern and make it easier to fall asleep. Do the same things for about an hour before you go to bed and your body will recognize this routine and know it’s time for bed.

6. Remove the Alarm Clock From Their View

Looking at the clock will only create the feeling that you have to sleep, but can’t. These worries will make things even worse. Keep those bright screens out of your bedroom. Losing the feeling for what time it is by not actually looking at it or dismissing thoughts on how long you have been awake, has shown to improve healthy sleep.
