you get and the quality of sleep you get. When picking out a mattress,
it is best to lay on the mattress for at least ten minutes to
determine if it is comfortable for you or not. If you just lay on it
for a couple minutes you do not get a real sense of how the mattress
Firm mattresses are best for back sleepers, while slightly softer
mattresses are best for side sleepers. Keeping the same routine at
night is another factor to sleeping better at night. Exercising too
close to bed can get you worked up, therefore inhibiting a good nights
sleep. Try not to drink too much before bed so you do not wake up
needing to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Caffeine and
alcohol also can affect sleep. Caffeine because it wakes you up.
Alcohol may temporarily help you fall asleep, but through the night
you will wake up having to go the bathroom, maybe have a headache and
not be able to get back to sleep. Watching television in bed is
another factor that can keep you from getting a good nights sleep.
Depending on your metabolism it may be a good idea to eat a healthy snack
before bed. If you constantly find yourself waking up from hunger, eat
a snack before bed. Make sure it is something healthy. Sometimes we
think just a bowl of low sugar cereal is plenty, or even drinking a
glass of juice or milk. Yogurt and nuts also have some calorie content
that are healthy and will help you sleep better. Another good food to
eat now and then is a bag or can of mixed nuts, walnuts are needed
just make sure you are not allergic. Whole grain foods are also needed
in your diet such as wholegrain flour, brown rice is good along with
wholegrain pasta. Try and drink green tea and plenty of water to flush
out your system.
