The GOOD stuff...I mean sleep!

I hope you all had a much better weekend then me!! I was feeling pooped and under the weather! There was a nastyvirus going around school that I caught! Last for over 5 days of fever,  aughing, sneezing, and even a little vomiting! THE WORST!

Anyway, last Mondaywe talked about the importance of sleep! I love hearing from you readers! One thing I didn't cover is sleep while being a mom, because I am not one yet! So all you mommy can chime in from personal experience of HOW to get more sleep! 

So we know the importance of sleep but what are some tips to actually get more sleep!? 

Try to get to sleep at the same tim every night and wake up around the same time in the morning! This will get your body in a routine to know THIS IS SLEEP TIME! For mommies, this could be impossible! I have heard of sleep schedules for your baby and that would help mommy get some rest as well! Moms, do sleep schedules help!? 

If you body is active during the day it will sleep better at night! 30 minutes of exercise will allow for deeper and longer rest! 

Caffeine, sugar, alcohol
Limit your intake of these things during the day! Especially right before bed time! These chemicals affect the way in which your body is able to sleep! 

I am SO awful at this! Try to turn off your cell phone, computer, tv before bed! A book is a great way to get to sleep! The electronics stimulate your brain and it actually harder to fall asleep with those devices! 

Restful Environment
Studies have shown a clean room helps your sleep better! Even though you are resting and you can't see anything, your mind knows what the room looks like it! It knows if it has laundry to put away, clothes to fold, shoes to put back! Do yourself a favor and create a restful environment! Your body will thank you! 

Any other good tips!?

  1. Oh no! I am so sorry that you have been sick, I hope you are feeling better. As far as sleep as Amon, I guess I have been lucky and have not been sleep deprived. My daughter is a good sleeper but I also tend to do better on little sleep. The idea of having a restful environment is so true for me! The room has to be clean and the bed has to be made before I go to sleep haha untucked sheets drive me nuts.

  2. Thank you for sharing this. My sleeping pattern has been way off lately and I need to get back on track!

  3. Great reminders!!! I feel you on the feeling under the weather...I just got over the flu last week - it was horrible! Hoping you have a quick recovery and feel better soon! Thanks for sharing with us at On Mondays We Link-Up :)

  4. Sleep?? What is that? LOL I am so terrible about the electronics thing. My phone is right next to my bed and I grab it all the time.

  5. It is so hard to stop looking at my phone right before I sleep!
