How to Sleep More Comfortably at Night

There is nothing worse than tossing and turning in your sleep when all you want is a solid and complete night of restful sleep to prepare you for the next morning. We’ve all been there, and when there is no trick that is working to help you fall asleep, it can feel like a hopeless battle that leaves you more tired in the end. But getting a comfortable night of sleep doesn’t have to be a challenge. Knowing the right, scientifically proven things that can help you sleep is all you need. Here are three ways that you can sleep more comfortably at night.

Get in the Right position

The first key to getting a more comfortable sleep at night is to start by picking the right sleep position. For most people, the best sleeping positions for a good night sleep are on your side or back. These positions relieve pressure on your spine and let your body relax completely for a restful sleep. If you are someone who enjoys sleeping on your stomach, the right mattress can still allow for spinal alignment. 

Avoid Bad Sleep Habits

Another crucial step to sleeping more comfortably at night is to avoid bad night routine practices. The things that you do routinely before you try to go to bed, play a major role in how easy it is to fall asleep and the quality of your sleep after you have fallen asleep. Things like staying on technological devices late at night or grinding your teeth can be signs that your sleep habits need to change. Grinding your teeth during the night can cause them to chip and crack, so be sure to consult your dentist if you think you’re grinding your teeth while sleeping.

Focus on Late Night Eating

The final thing that can help you sleep more comfortably at night is to pay closer attention to what you eat in the three hours before bed. Digestion takes a lot of energy from your body, so if you tend to eat foods that are hard on the digestive system late at night, your gut may be working hard while you are trying to relax. Avoid eating intensely fatty and oily foods, a lot of dairy, or spicy food before bed to avoid digestive issues keeping you tossing and turning.

Nobody likes getting a terrible night of sleep. But if your sleep is bad more often than good, you may need to make some changes. If you are doing these three things, you are bound to find relief from your sleep issues.
