5 Things To Add to Your Nighttime Routine to Ensure a Good Night's Sleep.

Establishing a bedtime routine can significantly impact the quality of your sleep. Here are five essential additions to incorporate into your nighttime regimen to ensure a restful and rejuvenating night's sleep.

1. Keep It Cool: Researchers found that people had poorer quality sleep in warm sleeping environments. Keep your bedroom cool, ideally between 60-67°F (15-19°C).


2. Sleepy Foods: Enjoy a small snack before bed that contains complex carbohydrates and a source of protein, such as a banana with almond butter or whole-grain crackers with cheese. 

3. Better Dreams: Practice relaxation techniques before bed, such as deep breathing exercises or progressive muscle relaxation, to reduce stress and anxiety that may interfere with dream quality. Keep a dream journal by your bed to jot down any dreams upon waking, helping you to reflect on and understand your dreams better, which can contribute to more restful sleep

4. Maintain a Consistent Sleep Schedule: Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night. Studies show some women might need 10 hours of sleep. Establish a consistent bedtime and wake-up time, even on weekends.

5. Spend Some Time in the Sun: Exposure to sunlight, particularly in the morning, helps regulate your body's internal clock, known as the circadian rhythm. Just ten minutes of sunlight each day can signal to your brain that it's time to wake up, promoting alertness during the day and better sleep at night
