Tips for Getting A Good Night's Sleep

June 22, 2015 1:20 AM

By Timothy Perry

You live in a busy world. Your life is hectic and you are often forced to balance our own schedules with those of friends, family members and co-workers. Unexpected things happen. Projects and appointments take longer than anticipated. Eventually, you begin to lose sleep. Perhaps not often at first, but eventually it seems as though it has become an occurrence every night.

You have become a member of the chronically sleep-deprived and you are not alone.

According to a 2008 study by the Centers for Disease Control, as many as 11.4 percent of adults in Ohio have chronic sleep problems. Sleep is increasingly acknowledged as an important part of public health. Those who are sleep deprived show, among other things, higher motor vehicle accident rates, less productivity, and more medical problems. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that up to 100,000 accidents occur each year due to drowsy driving.

It is, therefore, highly important that we get the seven to eight hours per night of sleep that the National Institutes of Health recommends.

The National Sleep Foundation recommends the following tips for getting a good night’s sleep:
•   Set a sleep schedule and stick to it.
•   Make your bedtime ritual relaxing.
•   Avoid naps
•   Get plenty of exercise
•   Keep your bedroom cool, free from noise, and free from light
•   Avoid eating heavy meals in the evening
•   Avoid alcohol or cigarettes
