Many of us may be sleeping better now that we are staying indoors more often and thus perhaps have less stress. But what happens when life goes back to normal? How will you maintain the progress you have made? Here are a few tips: Avoid eating sugar-filled foods at night. If you must have a snack, let it be predominantly made of protein and/or fat. This signals the body to feel satiated more quickly and does not spike the blood sugar. Spiking the blood sugar can make you stay up longer and potentially crave carbs the next morning. If your wifi company has not warned you that turning off wifi would be an issue, turn off wifi before bed. Electromagnetic sensitivity is real, and it may be keeping some of you from sleeping well at night. Stop drinking water 1-2 hours before bed. This will help decrease the amount of times you wake up to urinate in the middle of the night. The more you can have sound uninterrupted sleep the better.
I remember hearing statements in church when I was growing up like, “God woke me up at 3:00 AM so that I would pray.” Consider that God did not wake you up but instead that you don’t sleep well. God designed humans to be sleeping deeply by 3:00 AM. When you wake up in the middle of the night, prayer is a great way to spend the time, but let us also be focused on what we need to do to sleep better.
