Proper sleep can help heal wounds more effectively and ensure you reach peak productivity. 

Proper sleep can help heal wounds more effectively and ensure you reach peak productivity.


Anyone who has spent a night tossing and turning knows the frustration and lack of productivity that follows the very next day. Sleeplessness as a whole has become a huge issue in recent years: Per a December 2014 survey from the National Sleep Foundation, 45 percent of Americans didn’t get enough ZZZs at least once in a week-long span.

A lack of proper rest doesn’t just cause you to feel agitated or prevent you from getting work done but can also increase your risk of Type 2 diabetes and impact normal wound healing.

If you want to get a better night’s rest, consider these four handy tips:

1. Avoid daily naps 
As refreshing as they might feel, naps are generally a bad idea. They can throw off your sleep schedule, which is even more problematic if you have trouble falling or staying asleep at night. If you can get better sleep at night, then you won’t need that mid-day catnap in the long run.

2. Set up a ritual 
One of the most effective ways to get a better night’s rest is to establish a nightly ritual. That means going to bed at the same time every night, in addition to remaining consistent in how you actually get into bed (having a warm glass of milk, reading in bed for a few minutes, etc.). This establishes a pattern for your body and makes it easier to fall asleep and remain in that state through the entire night.

3. Prepare your room
Too many people don’t consider the state of their rooms when they go to sleep. Even just a little ambient light can make an impact, so it’s a good idea to create a dark enough space as to avoid nocturnal disruptions. Temperature can also affect your sleep schedule, so keep a few fans around to help regulate the whole room. As an added bonus, fans make some background noise, and that can be comforting to some people and a great sleep aid.

4. Exercise often 
It may seem counterintuitive, but exercise is a great way to get on a proper sleep schedule. It’s a way to use up energy and to ensure that your body is in the proper state for a full night’s rest. Just don’t exercise within two hours of your normal bed time, or you’ll find yourself unable to fall asleep as your body hasn’t had ample time to come back down.
