Do’s and Don’ts After a Bad Night’s Sleep

|

There are few things worse than a sleepless night. The morning after doesn’t feel much better either. Luckily, you have the chance to make things right again by bedtime. So, what can you do to recover today and how can you get quality sleep tonight?

Don’t sleep in.

It may be tempting when you’re tired, but it’s a bad idea. Sleeping in can affect your body’s internal clock and throw off your sleep schedule in the days that follow. Instead, resolve to go to bed a little earlier to make up for lost sleep.

Do have caffeine (in moderation).

A cup or two of coffee can help you stay alert, especially if you’re feeling groggy, but use common sense. Drinking too much coffee or having it close to bedtime will keep you up again.

Do make your bedroom a sleep sanctuary.

Take stock of your bedroom for lights or noises that could be disturbing you at night — and don’t curl up with your digital devices. Temperature can also be a factor as research shows that extreme heat or cold can disrupt rest. The National Sleep Foundation recommends an optimal sleeping temperature between 60 and 70 degrees.

Don’t rely on willpower.

Sometimes you need a little extra help when sleep is elusive, and that’s okay. Homeopathic sleep aids are an excellent option because they’re non-habit forming and don’t contain melatonin or other ingredients to leave you groggy the next day. SleepCalm tablets are made with plant-based active ingredients that work to relieve occasional sleeplessness, restless sleep, and intermittent awakening.* There are also several single “blue tube” medicines to choose from if your sleep symptoms are very specific.
