Entrepreneurs sacrifice many aspects of their personal lives for their business. Unfortunately, this often means de-prioritizing healthy activities like exercise and sleep. Women are particularly at risk of the adverse effects of sleeplessness.

 

According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, women are more likely than men to suffer from trouble sleeping and tend to have a harder time functioning on too little sleep. There’s no doubt that women business owners need to make sleep a priority in their lives! If you’re having trouble getting the quality sleep you need, check out the following tips to relieve sleeplessness naturally.

“Life is to short live it wisely and don’t stress on things that you can’t control and focus on the things you can- Faviola Valencia”

Transform Your Phone into a Sleep Coach

 

Although your phone can be extremely useful for connecting with clients, managing your marketing strategies, and staying organized during the workday, it can be a serious sleep disruptor in the evenings.

 

Transform your device from a bedtime procrastination culprit into a personal sleep coach by downloading some sleep-promoting apps. Headspace and Relax Melodies, for example, are excellent resources for guided meditations and soothing sleep sounds. Other apps, like Sleep Time and Sleep Cycle, will track your sleep cycles and gently wake you up in the morning during your optimal sleep phase. Just make sure your smartphone is powerful enough to run your apps all night long!

 

If you’re in need of a new phone, some of the latest iPhone models have up to 25 hours of battery life and wireless charging. If you’re an Android user, models like the Asus Zenfone 6 and Moto G7 Power are high-performing devices and offer multi-day battery life. 

Give Your Bedroom a Makeover

 

Our bedroom environments affect our quality of sleep more than we think. Some common household sleep disturbers include noise, heat, and clutter. If your bedroom environment doesn’t feel like a sleep sanctuary, it’s time for some redecorating! Thrive Global recommends decluttering, hanging blackout curtains, and repainting in calming pastel colors.

 

Investing in a new mattress can also do a lot to improve your sleep. Outdated mattresses are uncomfortable and unsupportive, which is why it’s important to replace your mattress every 7 to 10 years. If it’s time for an upgrade, be sure to read online reviews before buying a new bed. Different mattresses are better suited for different body types. For example, Tuft & Needle mattresses can be very comfortable for small and medium-sized sleepers but may not provide enough support for people over 250 pounds. You’ll also want to keep your preferred sleep style in mind when selecting a mattress since back and stomach sleepers tend to need more support, while side sleepers need conforming pressure relief.

Adopt Healthy Lifestyle Habits

 

The activities you engage in on a daily basis can also have an impact on your sleep. For example, nicotine and alcohol have a very negative impact on sleep quality and increase the frequency of nighttime wakings. Research suggests that these substances are even worse for our sleep than caffeine! On the other hand, a healthy diet will ensure you get all the essential vitamins and minerals that your brain uses to regulate sleep-inducing hormones. Regular exercise can also help you fall asleep faster and sleep longer, especially if you get moving in the late afternoon. Just try to avoid exercising too vigorously right before bed. In general, healthy habits tend to help us fall asleep faster and enjoy better quality sleep.

 

Don’t underestimate the importance of sleep. Your business relies on your ability to care for yourself and stay balanced. Getting a good night’s sleep every night will benefit your overall health in several ways, and in turn, give you the energy and motivation you need to take your business to the top.
