Just Go to Sleep!

In our last article "7 Things That Healthy People Do" the first on our list was getting enough sleep. We have gotten a lot of questions about the best methods for actually going to bed on time and then falling asleep. The truth is that there is no easy way to change old habits of going to bed late, but there are some things that you can do to help.

Go to Bed
It's 11pm, what are doing? Probably a whole bunch of nothing, so just go to bed. Sometimes we catch up on work or our favorite TV show, but if you get these things done earlier in the day then you won't need to be a part of a never ending game of "catch up".

Cut the Caffeine
Everyone loves caffeine, but the more you drink, the harder it is to go to sleep. Definitely don't drink any after 6 pm, unless you are using it to help you workout.

Turn Off the TV
For quite some time I got in the habit of lying in bed and watching TV to go to sleep. Unfortunately, I found that it took longer for me to fall asleep and that I had more restless nights. If you are going to watch TV at night, do it in a different room than your bedroom.

Take Melatonin

Darkness stimulates the production of melatonin from your pineal gland thus telling your body to sleep. With age, people tend to lose the ability to produce melatonin. This may explain why older people have disrupted sleep patterns and tend to go to bed and wake up earlier than when they were younger. A study of 334 people aged 55 and older found that prolonged-release melatonin produced significant and clinically meaningful improvements in sleep quality, morning alertness, sleep onset latency, and quality of life.* Consistently take it 30 minutes before you go to bed and you will end up getting to bed on time and getting the restful sleep that you want*.
