Six Mind Hacks For A Faster, Deeper Sleep

Six Mind Hacks For A Faster, Deeper Sleep

Interestingly, one proven hack is to get out of bed. This sounds counterintuitive, but according to the experts, frustratedly laying in bed can cause negative feelings toward where you sleep, which only compounds the problem. Instead, hit the couch and read a book for a while.

Another obvious (too obvious!) tip is to switch off your phone. Yes, we know apps and websites are addictive, but blue light really can trick your mind into thinking it’s daytime. Try to spend at least 30 minutes screen-free before bed.

You may also want to try something called ‘practiced relaxation’. The trick is to relax one part of your body at a time starting with your toes and working your way up. People are known to fall asleep before they reach their head.
