We are back with your Tuesday Tips. This week we want to focus on the importance of emotional wellness month. Emotional wellness is the ability to accept our feelings, having a generally positive outlook, and enjoying life.
Never underestimate the importance of getting a good night’s sleep in order to find emotional wellness.
Follow these tips in order to find emotional wellness by sleeping better:
Make yourself go to bed at a regular time every night. Set a time and stick to it.
If you are lacking sleep, take an afternoon nap instead of sleeping in late. This way you will not be disturbing your regular sleep pattern.
However, if insomnia is a problem for you—consider skipping the nap.
Try to avoid the after-dinner sleepiness by making yourself active. You can go to the gym, call a friend, clean the house a little, or pick out your outfit for the next day.
Increase your light exposure during the day and go outside more.
Reduce noise around you when you are trying to go to sleep. You may want to invest in a pair of earplugs.
Eliminate any light in your room by using dark shades to cover your window.
Stay away from big meals at night.
Also, avoid drinking alcohol before bed. Alcohol can disturb your quality of sleep.
Try relaxation techniques before bed such as deep breathing, muscle relaxation, or visualization of a relaxing place.
We hope these tips will help you find a restful night sleep. Remember to check back here every week for your Tuesday Tips.
