I’m sure that you would agree that getting the proper amount of rest is crucial to your overall health and well being.  In fact, sleep is so important that it affects the health of your heart, your brain, and even the amount of weight you gain. So if we can agree that we all need a good night’s sleep but how do you actually achieve such a feat?  Well, if you follow these 7 sleeping tips listed below you will be well on your way to getting a good nights sleep.

Sleeping Tip #1Create a comfortable sleeping space.  Introduce things in your bedroom that promote sleep and get rid of those things that hinder a good night sleep.  That new Blu-Ray flat screen doesn’t belong in your bedroom.  If the TV is not there then chances are greater that you will go to sleep with peaceful dreams instead of the last violent or crime filled TV show that you witnessed before drifting off to sleep.  Make sure you have comfortable bedding, which includes the right bed pillow, a comfortable mattress and high thread-count pillowcases and linen.  It’s also a good idea to make sure your room is in complete darkness as the helps you get the best quality of deep sleep.

Sleeping Tip #2 - Have a consistent routine.  When you have a regular routine you send a single to your brain that it’s time to wind down and relax.  The routine that you choose should be one that relaxes you just before going to bed.  You could read a light novel or listen to some classical jazz.  You could also have a cup of your favorite beverage, work on a hobby or listen to a motivational CD.
