If you are anything like me, it doesn’t matter if you go to bed early or late, you are always extremely tired in the morning. I’m here to tell you a couple ways that may help you get better sleep and make you wake up less tired and more energized. For starters I find that if I keep my room completely dark with no light, it helps me fall asleep a lot faster and keeps me asleep throughout the night. Also having your room at a cool temperature helps you relax and wind down. I don’t know about you, but hot showers or baths always make me feel better before going to bed, so that can be a good option also. Wear something clean to bed like pajamas or t-shirts, not the sweatpants you wore to school that day. Studies suggest that drinking tea before bed is an amazing way to ease your body to sleep. These are just a few suggestions that may help you. Happy sleeping!
