Everybody knows how much better it feels to get up in the morning after a good night’s sleep than a bad night’s sleep. If you spend your night tossing and turning, waking up at odd intervals, and not being able to fall asleep, the odds are good that you will not feel your best the next day. A good night of sleep, 8 hours for some, more or less for others, will make you feel better rested, more alert, and give you a better disposition. That sounds good, doesn’t it? Now you just need to figure out how to get that restful night of sleep.

The tools and atmosphere necessary to get a full night of sleep are not a mystery. It does not take a rocket scientist or a chalkboard covered with mathematical equations to know how to fall asleep and stay asleep. The first thing you need is a dark room. Too many of us leave the television on, fall asleep with a light on, have a computer screen on, or have cell phone and alarm clock lights pointed right at our faces. This keeps our brains from going into the deepest type of sleep, fooling it into thinking that the sun is up. Shut off those lights and sleep in a room that is as dark as possible and you will instantly notice that your sleep is deeper and more restful.

The mattress you sleep on might be part of your problem as well. If you sleep on a mattress that is too hard, it can be rough on your hips and back. You will wake up sore and will have to turn over several times a night. A mattress that is too soft will have some of the same effects, but you will likely have more back pain from sinking in and less hip pain. You should be using a mattress that is somewhere in between. It should support you, but should have enough give to take the pressure off of the parts of your body that carry the most weight while you sleep. Pillow tops on firm mattresses have come a long way and are great for this. Foam and air mattresses are also designed to help these problems, though they are a bit more expensive.

Good sleep also requires good health. If your body is not producing the right hormones you can have less than restful nights of sleep. Exercise and diet should help this. Working out regularly and eating well balanced meals will help your body rest when it should rest and be alert when it should be alert. Sometimes you need outside help to make sure that your body has all of the vitamins and hormones that it needs. Melatonin supplements can be taken a little while before bed to put your brain into a “sleep ready” state. Other supplements designed specifically for good sleep will give you the vitamins that your body needs to produce these hormones, ensuring that you wake up refreshed and ready to go.
