Hey everyone! I’m back with the 5th episode of Maya Monday, and it’s all about sleep. I just started class this week, so getting on a regular sleep schedule was a major and difficult task. I included five tips that helped me to get a good night’s sleep. Hopefully, they help you as well! If you would rather read the tips, I’ve listed them below just for you.
how to get a good night’s sleep
use comfy sheets and blankets when you go to sleep.
Also, wear your favorite PJs! You want to feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible in order to prepare for rest. For tips on a relaxing night, check this video.
use your bed as a place of rest & relaxation only
You don’t want to do work or anything like that in bed because your mind will start thinking that bed equals work & that’s not conducive to a good rest.
no sugar or caffeine before bed
It gets your mind too amped up to sleep. The same goes for screen time; let your mind be calm.
establish a bedtime routine
Your brain will start to recognize when it’s time to settle down and prepare to go to sleep. Start at the same time, and carry out your nightly duties.
minimize lights and notifications.
You don’t want all those group texts waking you up every 10 seconds. Put those devices on silent and “Do Not Disturb.”
in other words…
Sleep is very important, and it is very important to get enough of it. I understand that we often prioritize school or work before sleep and that for many, tough responsibilities get in the way, but just try your hardest to get at least 6 hours of sleep each night.
