We Changed Our Sleeping Habits After A Month Long Family Vacation

When you've had a decent night's sleep, you feel better in the morning and your sleeping habits influence your physical and mental health.

It takes some people years to be able to make sleep a priority, but after our month-long family vacation, we did just that.

Using an Eye Mask

It's so comfortable, making everything around you nice and dark. You wouldn't believe how much of a difference an eye mask makes.

Put something in front of those little lights on your TV, so you don't see them. A dark room makes a big difference in the quality of sleep you get.

Get Rid of All Lights In Your Room

Put Your Phone Down at Least an Hour Before Bed

This hour of no phone or tv time will let you start to relax and not think about all the things you have to get done or all the things you saw on social media.

The soothing sound options block out all the excess noise from the hallways or those loud guests who stumble back to their room in the middle of the night.

Use a Sound Machine

After exploring outside all day on our vacation, we noticed that the fresh air and sunlight contributed to our restful sleep at night.

Increase Your Exposure to Bright Light During the Day

A routine sleeping pattern will help your body acclimate to the schedule and make it simpler to nod off.
