    13 Tips for a Great Nights Sleep

    Here are thirteen tips to cure many sleep problems and help you quickly fall asleep no need to count sheep:


    1. Exercise for 30 minutes a day. You must spend energy to receive energy. I dont care how tired you feel you must exercise. People who exercise have better body temperature cycles suitable for quality sleep and are more energetic. If you dont exercise at all, youll feel sluggish throughout the day because your body temperature remains stagnant. Dont exercise too late in the day, however, otherwise youre body temperature will be too high for good sleep.
    2. Get 15 minutes of sunlight a day. If you struggle to rack up a few minutes in the sun each day, youre not sleeping as well as you could be. Your internal body clock uses sunlight to control its energy levels. Light makes you awake while darkness releases melatonin to make you sleepy. Get outside and at least open your curtains to absorb some
      light for better sleep.
    3. Stay away from caffeine and alcohol six hours before bedtime. I use to think a cup of coffee two hours before bedtime didnt keep me awake actually, I thought it helped me get to sleep from the energy crash and it did. However, these drinks disrupt later sleep cycles so youll get poor sleep.
    4. Quit smoking. Nicotine is a stimulant. Also, smokers can experience nicotine withdrawal during the night that disrupts sleep. Your body will thank you in more ways than better sleep once you quit sucking down that crap. Ive never been a smoker, but Allen Carrs
      The Easy Way to Stop Smoking
      seems to be a miracle book for many smokers.
    5. Stay away from television and computer games before bedtime. Ive found I wont sleep no matter how tired I am until one hour has passed since playing a computer game or watching television.
    6. Dont take sleeping pills. Im not a doctor so you should consult with a doctor before following the advice in this article. If you want to be scared from taking sleeping pills ever again, read about the
      dark side of sleeping pills.
    7. Get a nice bed. You spend one-third of your time in bed so make yourself comfortable. Make sure you have plenty of room to stretch out even if youre huge like me!
    8. Eliminate sensory input. Make your bedroom as dark as possible and get outside noises to a minimum. A towel under a door helps with both. Ive found a sleeping mask to be a miracle for light rooms and improving the quality of my sleep just be aware you could sleep more than usual because natural sunlight wont get into your eyes.
    9. Make your room a good temperature with ventilation. If youre in a hot room with bad ventilation, expect bad sleep. You wont fall asleep when youre hot unless youe really tired. The body best falls asleep often in cooler temperatures. Open your windows if you can to let in cool air. If you get cold, put on more blankets. Fresh oxygen is vital for good sleep. Experiment with the room temperature best for you. A thermostat to measure your ideal room temperate and a fan to cool you down and ventilate the room will improve your sleep and give you more energy.
    10. Checkout the End Tiredness Program. In it you discover how to manage jet lag, shift work, and eliminate tiredness. You can learn about it
      here.
    11. Find your sleeping personality. Im a fetus on my right side! I ve noticed that 95% of the time I wont fall asleep until Im in that position, which feels the most comfortable.
    12. Build a relaxing sleep routine. Try yoga, reading, or visualizations, for example, to see what relaxation techniques you like. Do these consistently before going to bed and youll notice you fall asleep without worry-filled thoughts clogging your mind.
    13. Change what isnt working. If you lay in bed for 20 minutes and do not feel sleepy maybe because your mind is rushing, do something else. Things that have worked for me include eating a light meal because a hungry stomach can keep me awake, drinking water, visualizations like tensing then releasing all the muscles in my body from head to toe, reading, or doing some non-stimulating activity until I feel tired.


    Follow this advice and you'll wake up refreshed with heaps of energy ready to create the reality you desire!
