22+ Very Doable Things That Will Get You To Sleep Faster

The bad news is you’re here because you’re having trouble sleeping. The good news is there is a multitude of sleep tips out there to help you get a better rest at night!

There are so many ways you can help yourself out when it comes to getting a proper sleep. Whether it’s cutting out bad habits or harmful substances that actually hinder your ability to fall asleep, or adding new steps to your nighttime routine, there’s no shortage of ways to get the sleep you need.

We gathered 24 different tips to help you get the sleep you need and feel properly rested in the morning. So sit back, relax and maybe take some notes!

1. Get rid of those pesky light sources. When any source of light (iPhone, laptop, etc) manages to pass through your closed eyelids, it can delay your brain from releasing the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin. “Light is a powerful signal to your brain to be awake,” explains Dr. Shives, a board-certified sleep medicine doctor.

2. Keep it cool. You fall asleep faster in a slightly colder environment. Keep your room a cool temperature but not cold, which can wake you up more. Experts usually recommend setting your bedroom thermostat between 65° and 75°F.

3. Be consistent. Following a sleep schedule of the same bedtime and wake up time helps to regulate your body’s clock.

4. Have a bedtime ritual. Relaxing, routine activity (reading, yoga, etc) right before bedtime gives you that time you need to wind down. Let your body shift into sleep mode!
