Often times when we struggle to sleep and have a looming wake up time growing near, we become more anxious and have an harder time sleeping. Here are some great tips to help you sleep more peacefully so you can wake up on time in the morning.
1. If you wake up at night, you may need to get up.
Experts say that if you wake up in the middle of the night and are agitated that you cannot fall back asleep, then you need to get out of bed. It has been found that people who associate negative feelings about their sleep environment will most likely not sleep well. So unless you are at peace and relaxed when you wake up at 3am, then head to the couch for a change of scenery.
2. You don’t really have insomnia.
People who have a hard time fall asleep or who experience a broken sleep pattern throughout the night often times start to label themselves as an insomniac. Experts are now saying that simply telling yourself that you have insomnia will keep you from sleeping well. So before you go to bed, instead of thinking you won’t sleep or that you are an insomniac, simply think pleasant thoughts about a good night’s sleep and relax.
3. Don’t over think your wake up time.
If you have an earlier than normal wake up time in the morning, don’t think about it too much. And remember,if you have already established your sleep cycle, it will be hard for you to force yourself to fall asleep earlier than normal. Make sure to have positive thoughts about waking up early so that you don’t clog your mind with anxiety over it.
4. Take your Wake Up On Time
Whether you are getting up at your normal wake up time, or setting your alarm 2 hours earlier, remember to take Wake Up On Time 6-8 hours before you alarm goes off. This will insure that you can have a gradual awakening process that leaves you feeling refreshed and energized when the alarm sounds.
