Tips for a Better Sleep

month and always by paying attention to your sleep patterns! Your Liv Avenida apartment here in Chandler, AZ is a great place to relax. Get a better sleep by remembering these tips.


Prepare your sleep situation.

Some of us may be in the habit of washing and changing our sheets weekly, like we should. For others, it’s all too easy to let that chore slip out of our fingertips week by week. Take time to do it this week if you haven’t already. There’s nothing quite like slipping into warm, clean sheets to soothe your tired body after a long day!

Remember also to prepare your whole room for bed: Clean your room, remove clutter from your bed or the floor that can cause you physical stress or pain, and turn off all lights. Use an alarm clock if that helps you focus on sleeping rather than keeping your phone nearby, which can disrupt or totally postpone your sleep.


Make time for it.

Life gets busy, and it’s easy to procrastinate your nighttime routine because you want to make the most of your evening. The night is young, right? Give yourself deadlines for what is acceptable for your nighttime outings so you can get home and start getting for bed early enough that you get the sleep you need, without rushing. Wake up earlier so you can finish your daily tasks earlier and get to bed earlier, without missing out on anything!


Relax yourself.

It’s not a great idea to get a full-

on workout in right before bed, as it can raise your heartbeat and keep your body awake and alert. Instead, try a 5-minute before bed yoga routine to get your mind and body relaxed and ready for sleep.


Address problems.

This could mean writing down your worries before you get to bed so you can physically put them aside, knowing you can address them in the morning. Or it could mean going to a doctor to see if you can prevent problems like insomnia, sleep apnea, or another condition that may be causing unrest. Get a better feel for what you need by keeping a sleep diary or using an app on your phone or smart watch to track your habits.
