A sleep deficit affects everything from your ability to pay attention and staying alert to your mood throughout the day. Lack of sleep can lead to emotional troubles such as anxiety and depression.

According to a National Sleep Foundation Sleep in America poll, more than 25% of high school students fall asleep in class, and experts have tied lost sleep to poorer grades. Read below to check out tips for better sleep at night to keep you healthy and feeling great.


1

Set a Regular Bedtime

 

 

Going to bed at the same time each night and waking up at the same time every day can help establish sleep patterns. Try to stick to a regimented sleep schedule, even on weekends.

 

2

Exercise Regularly

 

 

Many sleep experts believe that exercising in late afternoon may actually help a person sleep. Try not to exercise right before bed as it can boost your energy and make it harder to fall asleep. Finish exercising at least 3 hours before bedtime.

 

3

Avoid Stimulants

 

 

Don’t drink beverages with caffeine after 4 p.m. Drinking alcohol in the evening can make a person restless and interrupt sleep.

 

4

Don’t Over-Nap

 

 

Stick to quick 30 minute power-naps. Naps of more than 30 minutes during the day and naps too close to bedtime can make it harder to fall asleep.

 

5

Wake Up with a Bright Light in the Morning

 

 

Bright light in the morning signals your body that it’s time to wake up. If it’s naturally dark in your room, try turning on a light as soon as your alarm goes off.
