How to Get Better Sleep

how to sleep better

There is no doubt that getting good sleep is important. It is a chance for your body to reset and fix everything internally that gets all out of whack during the day. I like to think of your body as a computer, in this case. Whenever your computer starts going wonky on you, what do you do? You turn it off and turn it back on again. A lot of times, that fixes the problem. Your body works in much the same way when you sleep. How often have you been told, when you’re feeling under the weather, “Go to bed, you’ll feel better in the morning”?

Tips for Getting Better Sleep

Since it is so important, there are a number of things that you can be doing to help you get better rest. If you are battling some bouts of insomnia, you might be guilty of some common mistakes. Take the following advice below and you’ll be sleeping like a baby!

Make a Better Sleep Environment

We are so glued to our phones these days, but it is time to put them away when you want to get some good sleep.

The brightness of electronics like phones, tablets, and televisions can heighten our mental awareness and keep us awake. Turn off all gadgets and draw the blinds for a darker environment.

Turn off your ringer on your phone and anything else that makes nice. You can consider using a sleep therapy machine which emits soothing sounds. Also, make the investment in better bed sheets, pillows, and pillow covers.


A lot of times we are kept awake because our minds are racing. Stress and anxiety are two of the key contributors to insomnia, as well as lead to many other health risks. There are a number of ways to get rid of stress in your life. You can meditate to take your mind away. You can spend more time outdoors, which has been shown to lower stress levels. Take an evening walk to free your mind. It is also recommended to reduce the consumption of alcohol and caffeine.

Take CBD and Melatonin

Melatonin is a chemical that is naturally produced in the body that helps you fall asleep, and for that reason, it has become popular in supplement form to induce easier sleep. CBD is another natural remedy for sleep as it can bring feelings of relaxation and calmness. CBD can also lessen pain and stress, two other culprits of poor sleep. One popular CBD product for this use is Green Roads CBD Hemp Oil infused with melatonin, combining the effects of these two natural sleep aids.

Get Exercise

If you want to be more tired for bedtime, you need to tire yourself out more during the day. Beyond just helping you fall asleep, getting exercise is important for good health anyway. Make sure you are doing enough through the day so that your body is ready to crash at bedtime.

Make a Routine

I know that things come up that can interrupt your schedule, but if you want to fall asleep easier, try to create a set bedtime and your body will set its internal clock to that time. Also, waking up at the same time every morning can make your mornings easier as well.
