11 Things That Are Keeping You Awake At Night

  • Excersise: Exercising 3 hours before bed Keeps you awake by raising your body temperature. Plus, it makes you more sore in the morning than if you had exercised earlier in the day.

  • Watching Television or surfing the web: the bright screens reduce the production of melatonin ( the natural drug that puts you to sleep).

  • Hot baths/ showers: like Excersise, this helps you to sleep if you do it early enough. The problem however, is raising your temperature so much before bed.

  • Liquids: of course caffeine is taboo to consume before bed. However, if you drink too much of anything before bed you'll be getting up for bathroom breaks. Though, if you don't drink enough, you'll be getting up for a drink. Try to find your balance.

  • Work: of course you don't have much of a choice, but try to give yourself adequate time after work or school to de-stress.

  • Reading a good story: we all have tried to read before bed to fall asleep, but then ironically you can't put the book down. My recommendation is to get a book on an interesting topic, such as astronomy. Then you can learn before bed, which we all know puts us to sleep.

  • Cuddle with pets: yes it's sweet and soft and comforting, but it's suprising how much pets can impede your sleep. They take up more room than you!

  • Have serious conversations: the key is to not go to bed angry. The body can't sleep when it feels threatened- it's a defence mechanism from back in the nomadic days.

  • Don't eat heavy or spicy food: you should try to avoid anything that will upset your stomach.

  • Lie awake: if you can't fall asleep, don't lie in bed for hours. Every half hour you should get up and do something relaxing (read that boring book, write in a journal etc)
