Getting a good night’s rest is essential for the health of your brain, muscles, organs, and more. While you may be tempted to sleep until noon on the weekends, one of the first steps to improving a healthy sleeping pattern is setting your morning alarm for the same time every day. Going to bed at the same time each night is also key and can help ensure you’re getting seven to nine hours of uninterrupted sleep.
Prepping your bedroom can help you fall asleep and stay asleep longer. An hour or two before bedtime make sure that your bedroom is an environment conducive to sleep: Dim the lights, lower the thermostat, and put away your phone and other electronics.
So take the time in the morning to make your bed, and perhaps place a book or magazine on your bedside table to remind yourself that your bedroom is a space for sleep and relaxation. And consult with your physician if you suspect you may have sleep apnea, as it may be associated with hypothyroidism.
