8 Ways We Changed Our Sleeping Habits After Our Extended Family Vacation

Have you ever noticed how much better you sleep while on vacation? The fresh air and sunlight after exploring all day and then coming back to a plush hotel mattress all contribute to a great night’s sleep.

So why not take all the things that help you relax on vacation and put them to use at home. When you’ve had a decent night’s sleep, you feel better in the morning and your sleeping habits influence your physical and mental health

8 Ways to Get a Good Nights Sleep

Using an Eye Mask

An eye mask is one of the best travel accessories, but it is perfect for helping catch some zzzs at home. It’s so comfortable, making everything around you nice and dark. You wouldn’t believe how much of a difference an eye mask makes.

Get Rid of All Lights In Your Room

If you don’t use an eye mask, you want to make sure that your room is dark. I mean dark, no hallway lights, no bathroom lights, no lights from your phone or alarm clock. I also mean no little red lights from your TV.

Put Your Phone Down at Least an Hour Before Bed

I know this one is hard to do, but it works. Get off your phone at least an hour before you go to bed. This hour of no phone or tv time will let you start to relax and not think about all the things you have to get done or all the things you saw on social media.

Use a Sound Machine

We always travel with a sound machine when staying at hotels or resorts. The soothing sound options block out all the excess noise from the hallways or those loud guests who stumble back to their room in the middle of the night.
