How to Get a Good Night’s Sleep: Advice from a Holistic Sleep Coach

Sleep is essential for our physical and mental health. When we don’t get enough sleep, we can experience a variety of problems, including fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and mood swings. Women are more likely than men to have sleep problems, and this can be due to a number of factors, including hormones, stress, and lifestyle choices.

If you’re struggling to get a good night’s sleep, there are a number of things you can do to improve your sleep hygiene. 

In episode 45, holistic sleep coach Morgan Adams joined me to talk about this topic. Morgan Adams is a holistic sleep coach who helps women get the sleep they need to thrive. She is a former insomniac who understands the challenges of sleep deprivation. Morgan offers a variety of resources to help women improve their sleep, including online courses, coaching programs, and sleep consultations.

Let’s talk here too about some ways to be ready for a good night’s sleep.

  • Stick to a regular sleep schedule. Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day, even on weekends. This will help to regulate your body’s natural sleep-wake cycle.
  • Create a relaxing bedtime routine. This could include taking a warm bath, reading a book, or listening to calming music. Avoid watching TV or using electronic devices in the hour before bed, as the blue light emitted from these devices can interfere with sleep.
  • Make sure your bedroom is dark, quiet, and cool. Darkness helps to promote the production of melatonin, a hormone that helps to regulate sleep. Noise and light can disrupt sleep, so make sure your bedroom is as dark and quiet as possible. A cool temperature is also ideal for sleep.
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol before bed. Caffeine and alcohol can both interfere with sleep. Caffeine is a stimulant that can make it difficult to fall asleep, while alcohol can disrupt sleep later in the night.
  • Get regular exercise. Exercise can help to improve sleep quality. However, avoid exercising too close to bedtime, as this can make it difficult to fall asleep.
  • See a doctor if you have chronic sleep problems. If you’ve tried the above tips and you’re still having trouble sleeping, talk to your doctor. There may be an underlying medical condition that’s causing your sleep problems.

Here are some additional tips from Morgan Adams:

  • Address any underlying health conditions. If you have a chronic health condition, such as anxiety or depression, it can make it difficult to sleep. Talk to your doctor about ways to manage your condition so that it doesn’t interfere with your sleep.
  • Make sure your bedroom is comfortable. Your mattress and pillows should be supportive and comfortable. You may also want to invest in blackout curtains and a white noise machine to block out light and noise.
  • Create a relaxing environment. Avoid working or watching TV in bed. Instead, use your bedroom for sleep and sex only.
  • Get enough sunlight during the day. Sunlight helps to regulate your body’s natural sleep-wake cycle. Make sure to get at least 15 minutes of sunlight exposure each day.
  • Practice relaxation techniques. Relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing and meditation, can help to calm your mind and body and make it easier to fall asleep.

Following these tips can help you get the good night’s sleep you need to feel your best. If you’re still having trouble sleeping, talk to your doctor or a sleep specialist. They can help you identify the underlying cause of your sleep problems and develop a treatment plan.
