The best time to go to sleep is right after you wake up. It’s important to stay consistent so that your body can tell when it’s the “right time” for sleeping. Most people are thinking about going back to sleep in the middle of the night, but if you don’t wait until then, chances are you won’t be able to fall asleep again that night. You might think this means that getting enough rest during the day helps with falling asleep at night, but here’s what happens: If your body thinks it hasn’t slept long enough during the day, it will fight back by making sure you make up for lost sleep in order to get a good night’s rest. Your brain will try even harder than usual in order not ruin your bedtime routine and make sure things go well before bedtime. The result? You’ll feel more tired at bedtime than ever because you spent all afternoon fighting off symptoms of insomnia instead of resting!
