How to Get More Restful Sleep

Woman and Dog SleepingThe residents of our Flagstaff, AZ apartments are busy people, and sometimes, the stresses of the day can flow over into nighttime. If this sounds familiar, we've got a few tips you can use to elicit more peaceful sleep during the overnight hours. 

Put Yourself on a Schedule

Your body likes to work like clockwork, so it responds best when you go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. Sure, you might have a night when you stay up a little later, or a morning when you simply can't get out of bed because it's Saturday, but generally speaking, it's best to stick to the same schedule every day.

Put Your Phone on Do-Not-Disturb Mode

You don't need to hear the constant pinging and dinging of your phone throughout the night. Even the smallest of sounds can disturb your sleep and cause you to lose out on your precious slumber.

Don't Look at Your Phone Two Hours Before Bed Time

That sounds hard, but it's doable once you get into a routine. The blue light that's emitted by cell phones, tablets, and computers can disrupt your internal clock. If you must be on your devices, make sure you switch to nighttime mode and turn down the brightness.

Exercise During the Day

People who exercise regularly tend to sleep better at night. Consider using your lunch hour to hit a group class, or wake up an hour early and head to the gym. When you get your blood flowing, you'll feel less sleepy during the day, and you'll have a more restful sleep when night falls.

Limit Caffeine and Alcohol

Both of these substances can interfere with your sleep cycle and cause you to be even more tired than you were before you imbibed.
