Let go of trying to force sleep

One of the most significant issues with getting a good night's sleep is that we try too hard to get it, then we fail or feel like a failure after just one lousy night. Sleep is a natural state, and there's no need to try so hard to force sleep on your own. Instead, allow yourself to be more relaxed, and it will happen on its own.

If you're not sure how to go about letting go of trying to force sleep, there are tons of relaxation methods you can use. There are meditation apps and even hypnosis applications available. All of these can help, but restrict your use to prevent too much interference with your quality of life.

Don't go to bed angry

Whether you're dealing with anger or stress at the moment, you can't take it out on your sleep cycles. As humans, sleep is an important time for rest and recovery.

You may be frustrated with something or someone at the moment, but remember that everyone has their own opinion, and you're not obligated to agree with them. The best way to handle them is to talk to them instead of taking it out on your sleep cycle.

Of course, there are other reasons why you can't go to bed angry. No matter what the situation is, anger is powerful, so it's best to go to sleep before you have a chance to be too angry or stressed.

Get regular exercise

Regular exercise is vital for your mood and health in general, but it can have far-reaching effects when it comes to getting a better night's sleep as well.

Regular exercising can not only help you get better sleep, but it can help you sleep more deeply, dream more often, and even get you more restful sleep overall. Exercise can even help prevent your body from releasing stress hormones while you're sleeping, which is another key to sleeping better at night.

Improve your diet

Your diet is one of the most important aspects of getting a better night's sleep. If you eat something that has caffeine in it, it can harm your sleep cycles. How? It affects the quality of your restfulness levels throughout the night. It is because caffeine affects your disposition, and if you eat caffeine before you go to sleep, you're more likely to have sleep disruption, poor dream states, and other similar problems.

Use Comfortable Beddings

Do you feel pain when you're sleeping, are there times where you wake up feeling anything but rested? If you sleep on uncomfortable bedding, it can negatively affect your quality of life. 

Comfortable bedding from Richard Haworth can make an enormous difference when it comes to your overall sleep quality. Having a comfortable bed and mattress is a good start, but you can also add in an excellent pillow and even a down comforter if you have the money to do so. 

Just remember that there aren't any rules for what is or isn't comfortable bedding, so experiment with different types until you find the ones that work best for you.


It's incredible how many people think they're doing everything they need to do to get a better night's sleep. What is even more impressive is how many of those people give up and never try again.

Wake up less and go to bed more often? You can do it, but it will require some work on both your part and the part of all those around you. 

Of course, there is no one-size-fits-all solution, and everyone has their own sleep needs and sleeping habits. If you think that there's nothing that you're doing wrong, then try something new. Experiment with new products or even try a different mattress. It also may work if you have a routine to follow.

Just remember that if you're struggling and can't sleep, there's something wrong, and you need to fix it. The only way to fix it is to try something different and if all else fails, see a doctor or a sleep specialist.
