6 Ways to Repair Your Sleep Schedule


Besides trying your best to stick to a strict bedtime, there’s so much at play in keeping a healthy sleep schedule. Furthermore, your sleep schedule plays such a big role in how you function at work and in your daily personal and emotional life.

Sometimes, we may feel like our sleep schedules are a little out of whack, leading to us feeling groggy and unable to complete all the tasks as efficiently as we’d like to. That’s when it’s time to take a step back and assess if our circadian rhythm needs some assistance to get its groove back.

Here, we have listed some of how you can get your sleep schedule back on the right track when you feel like things have fallen off of the wagon.

Practice Relaxation More Often

Introducing practices that encourage relaxation more frequently may reduce overall tension and stress and its adverse effects on your sleep. It could be especially helpful to engage in calming activities at night before bed. Yoga, stretching, journaling, deep breathing, or even meditation can all help you if you’d like to wind down before bedtime.

Avoid Bright Light Before Bed

When we are exposed to bright light before bed, our brains get confused and think it’s daytime. This slows the production of melatonin ( the sleep hormone) and, therefore, leads us to feel more awake when we should be feeling sleepy.

It’s, thus, best to avoid screen time before bed and opt for dim lights at night. If you have a hard time waking up in the mornings, it could also be a good idea to expose yourself to bright light, as this stops the production of melatonin, making you feel more awake when you need to get your day started.

Exercise Regularly

Exercising is a great way to not only improve your overall health but it may also regulate your internal clock. Since most of your bodily tissues and muscles are linked to your biological clock, exercise may aid in rectifying your circadian rhythm.

It’s best to, however, avoid strenuous exercise right before bed as it may stimulate you and keep you awake for longer, but practicing it in the morning or afternoon is perfect.

Keep Cool

According to a 2012 study, room temperature is one of the most important factors concerning getting a good night’s sleep. If the air temperature in your bedroom is above 74°F (23°C), your sleep may be hindered by this factor. It might be time to invest in an air conditioner or a fan if your bedroom is not at the right temperature for a good night’s rest.

Eat Earlier

A late dinner means your body is going to be digesting food later into the night, and this could get in the way of you getting some good sleep. The best option when it comes to food is to eat a healthy, balanced meal before 8 pm and be sure to avoid stimulants such as caffeine and alcohol, as these may also affect your sleep.

Avoid Daytime Naps

Napping during the day not only causes grogginess but may also hinder your nighttime sleep schedule. If you need to take a nap, then opt to take it before 2 pm and only for 20 minutes or less to avoid entering into a deep sleep.

One could say that bathrooms are equal parts utility and sanctuary. Essentially, they’re the place where you can light a candle and wind down from a long day, but at the same time, it’s the exact spot where most of your grooming and getting ready for your day (or bed) happens. In terms of aesthetics, we do want our bathrooms to feel welcoming and serene, but, at the same time, they need to be functional.
