3 Ways to Boost your Sleep at Night
3 Ways to Boost Your Sleep at Night
As men age, it can be harder to both fall asleep and stay asleep. This can affect other aspects of your life, including your focus, mental health, and overall energy levels. At the Tulsa Men’s Clinic, our team of specialists work hard to provide easy ways to help boost your sleep to make sure your overall energy can be optimized for your well-being. The following tips are recommended for your overall health, as they may also help with other underlying issues that can affect your sleep.
Check Your Testosterone Levels
Lower testosterone, which happens often when men age, can cause sleep problems. A lower level of testosterone can make it more difficult to fall asleep, as well as to stay asleep. If you’re interested at looking at your testosterone levels, as well as boosting your testosterone, contact us at the Tulsa Men’s Clinic. Our cutting-edge men’s health clinics have the best technology to check your testosterone levels, and specialists who can recommend a wide variety of helpful treatments. We’ll make sure you get to sleep in no time.
Minimize Screen Time Before Bed
This is a hard one for most people to do, as it’s easy to watch TV or a movie before falling asleep. But unfortunately, these screens use blue light, which tricks your brain into feeling more awake, and can cause eye strain after extended periods of time. It’s important to minimize your screen time before bed so your brain can relax, easing yourself into sleep better. If you have to have a screen on, we recommend using a blue light blocking pair of eyeglasses, which can help solve this problem.
Keep Your Bedroom Colder
Studies have shown that colder rooms tend to induce more sleepiness than warmer rooms. If you are finding it difficult to sleep, try using a fan or opening a window to encourage airflow. You may find you’ll sleep better.
