What can we do to sleep better at night and wake up feeling well-rested? Here are some ideas of what you can do during the day and improve your chances of getting a good night’s sleep.

1. Keep a relatively consistent wake-up time.

One way to sleep better at night starts with your wake-up time. Keeping a consistent wake-up time can help you sleep better at night. Rather than constantly changing your alarm settings, try to keep the same time for most days of the week.

2. Time your caffeine intake accordingly.

Caffeine intake is another daily habit that can affect your sleep. If you drink caffeine, try to time your intake so that you’re done consuming coffee, caffeinated tea, etc., by mid-day. Then, your body will still have time to process any caffeine you still have in your system well before it’s bedtime.

3. Get outside and spend time in the sun.

Another great way to sleep better at night is to spend some time outside in the sun. Exposure to sunlight helps your body maintain its natural rhythms, making it more likely that you’ll be sleepy at nighttime and fall asleep more easily.

4. Stay consistent with your workouts.

Regular physical activity is another great way to get a good night’s sleep. Staying consistent with your workouts promotes various health benefits, including the management of stress and stress-related hormones. A daily workout can help regulate these chemicals and aid in helping you get quality sleep more often.

5. Drink plenty of water.

Drinking plenty of water throughout the day might also help you get good sleep at night. Instead of chugging a huge glass of water right before bed (and making it so that you’ll probably wake up at some point to use the bathroom), try to drink water throughout the day. Going to sleep well hydrated will also help your body recover well while you’re asleep so that you’ll wake up feeling refreshed and more rested.
