Are you sure/That we are awake? It seems to me/That yet we sleep, we dream…
— William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Unlike the spellbound, dozing characters in Shakespeare’s beloved comedy, many of us wish we could get in a few more hours of dreaming each night. Yet, a serene, uninterrupted eight hours can be hard to come by, especially during hot midsummer nights.
Take heart! There are a number of simple changes you can make to your everyday routine to help you feel rested and refreshed each morning this summer. To get you started, here are 5 tips to help you naturally doze off all season long:
1. Work it out. Warm summer days are perfect for getting outdoors and wearing ourselves out, which is great because getting enough exercise during the day can help encourage better sleep at night. The best time of day to exercise for optimum nighttime sleep? In the morning. According to Women’s Health, research has shown that “people who do 30 minutes of moderate cardio in the morning fall asleep quicker, snooze for longer, and spend up to 75 percent more time in deep sleep than those who sweat later in the day.” However, if a morning workout isn’t your thing, yoga has been shown to help improve sleep quality no matter what time of day you practice it. Whatever form of exercise you, enjoy—walking, running, swimming, surfing, biking, or gardening—incorporate one or all into your summer days.
