Implementing healthy sleep habits into your daily life is a great first step towards improving your mental well-being.
As we know at Flourishing Life Society, mental and physical health are intricately linked. Poor sleep has been shown to aggravate or contribute to many mental health conditions including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, autism spectrum disorder, and ADHD. Unfortunately, mental health problems can also disrupt sleep quality, fueling a vicious cycle that can be difficult to interrupt. Implementing healthy sleep habits into your daily life is a great first step towards improving your mental wellbeing. Here are some tips to help you get the quality sleep you need!
Use Technology Wisely
While some technology can disrupt your sleep, other forms of tech — like wireless headphones, white noise machines, and sleep trackers — can prove beneficial.
Stick to a Schedule
Sleeping on a consistent schedule will help you sync up with your body’s natural internal clock, so you feel sleepy and awake at the right times every day.
Develop Other Healthy Habits
How you spend your waking life can have a significant impact on your sleep quality. Try to develop some healthy habits to keep your body operating optimally.
Taking care of your physical body is vital to mental health and resilience. Making sleep a priority is one of the best things you can do in the name of self-care. Thankfully, improving your sleep might be as simple as adopting a few easy habits into your daily life. Try some of these tips today and see how your sleep improves!
