Longer days are great, but sometimes it can affect your sleeping pattern. Here's how to prevent it!
The days are getting longer and that is good news, but with that, sleeping can get compromised, see how you can improve your sleeping routine!
1. Dim the Lights
Set up a routine, try to wind down one hour before going to bed. Avoid using your phone as blue light from it can suppress melatonin levels (the sleep hormone), which will affect the duration of your sleep.
2. Check your room temperature
The key to success here is to sleep in a room with a temperature between 57° F and 72° F (14° C - 22° C). A cool short shower can also be helpful, and make sure you use a very light duve or just cotton bed sheets.
3. Change your drinking habits
Don't get confused. Having a cocktail or a glass of Rosé and admiring the sunset may sound like a fantastic way to relax. However, alcoholic drinks can prevent you from entering REM sleep (vital for adequate rest). Also, alcohol can raise your body temperature which will further disrupt your sleep.
