A Good Night's Sleep


~ there's nothing more relaxing than falling asleep to the sound of the waves ~

In order to get a good night's sleep  ...
here's what to avoid just before bed:

1. NAPPING. The need for sleep builds over the day and should peak right around when you go to bed at night. Naps dissipate this momentum.

2. TV TOO CLOSE TO BEDTIME. The light and the content are both incredibly alerting.

 3. A NIGHTCAP. Drinking alcohol makes you much more likely to wake up multiple times during the night.

 4. PETS IN THE BEDROOM. Dogs snore, and cats prowl.

  5. OVER SLEEPING Not everyone needs eight hours—the range is huge—from four to 11 hours.  Consider how much you tend to sleep at the end of a long vacation. Then see what happens if you get that much sleep. If you wake up just before your alarm goes off, that's your magic number.

These are very interesting tips Melissah and it is true that certain people can exist on less sleep than others. I used to be a minimum 8 hours a night girl... before children... now I'm a minimum 5 hours. And you're right, the napping does tend to throw everything out... I am guilty of the odd 'power' nap during the day xo
