How To Sleep Better As You Age

3 minutes to read

06/01/2018

I want to talk to you about something that might be a little… “uncomfortable.”

It’s a place we’ve ALL found ourselves before — in bed during one of those long, sleepless nights where, no matter how hard you try, you can never get comfortable.

Even if you’ve brought your room temperature down to the recommended 60-67 degrees…

...or if you’ve closed all the blinds and pulled the covers over your head.

You never really get into deep sleep, and you wake up MORE sluggish than when you went to bed.

Now, if this is something you’re worried about too, you’re not alone. According to doctors at Harvard, 7 out of every 10 adults has trouble getting a solid night’s rest. (1)

But, a great night’s sleep doesn’t have to be a dream — you just need to have a few tricks up your sleeve.

So I wanted to share a list of quick, easy things you can do to make your shut-eye a lot more enjoyable.

Here are my “5 Tips for Super Sleep”

1. Stick to a regular bedtime

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard it before: Go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day. But the real trick to making this one work is: you have to keep at it... even on the weekends.

This is the best way to make sure your body gets used to the routine.

2. Take a warm bath or shower

Now, it isn’t necessarily the warm bath or shower that does the trick; it’s the drop-in body temperature that happens when you get out that does it.

That dip in body temp works to help you feel tired, relaxed, and mellow. The perfect trio to spark a great night of sleep.

3. Make the bedroom a sleep zone

A great “hack” for better sleep is to make your bedroom precisely that — just a room for your bed.

Leave the tv for the living room and only use your bedroom for sleep (and sex of course).

4. Avoid afternoon naps

A midday nap might seem like an excellent idea, but keep in mind, if you sleep during the day, you're more likely to stay awake at night.

One big key to avoiding the dreaded afternoon slump? Avoid eating a high carb lunch, as the spike in blood sugar can lead to a crash later in the day.

5. Drink less fluid at night

It’s no secret, nighttime trips to the bathroom are the easiest way to break up your sleep.

And while being well hydrated is a great way to deal with the symptoms of an enlarged prostate, you want to make sure you’re done drinking your fluids around 2.5 hours before bedtime.

This means less time stumbling out of bed and more time relaxing in la-la land.

Now, I know it might not be possible to start doing all of these tips right away. So, start off with one or two and see how they improve your sleep.

They could be all you need to get the restful, restorative, comforting sleep you really deserve.
