How To Crack Your Sleep Routine

How To Crack Your Sleep Routine - LUMI Sleep

A good nights sleep is just as important as regular exercise and healthy eating. There are countless studies showing the negative effects on your hormones and brain function when you don't get enough sleep. On top of weight gain and increased risk of illness, there are so many reasons why getting a good night's sleep is so important. Here are some tips on how to get yourself into a fail safe sleep routine.

Reduce Blue Light Exposure In The Evening

Whilst exposure to light is beneficial during the day, night time light exposure from screens, can trick your brain into thinking it is still day time, which in turn reduces hormones like melatonin that help you relax and get to sleep. If you're at a computer all day, try reducing the time you spend staring at your phone when you get home in the evening. Instead take a warm shower, read a book or listen to some relaxing sounds on your LUMI sound machine to help get your body get ready to fall asleep.

Optimise Your Bedroom Environment

Your bedroom environment plays a huge role in your sleep routine. It's important to only get into bed when you feel tired and not to associate your bed with anything other than sleep or relaxation. Ensure your bedroom isn't too hot or too cold - the ideal temperature being around 18 degrees. Finally, optimise your environment by blocking out external noise and any artificial lights. The white noise from your LUMI device is a great way to drown out unwanted sounds which may otherwise wake you up. 

Wake Up And Fall Sleep At A Consistent Time 

It's been proven that getting into bed at the same time every evening and waking up at the same time every morning is incredibly beneficial when it comes to forming a sleep routine. By stabilising your circadian rhythm, this can help you to fall asleep quicker and have a more restful nights sleep. Whilst it's okay to have the occasional late night on a weekend, a consistent routine with your sleep is key to you working to your full potential during the daytime.
