Go-To Guide: Sleep Solutions

Improve your sleep situation with these eazzzy tips.

Is there anything better than waking up after a full night of sleep feeling well-rested, refreshed, and ready to face the day? Do you kind of forget what that feels like? You’re not alone. According to the CDC, up to 40 percent of adults in the United States get less than the recommended 7 hours of sleep per night. The effects of not enough sleep aren’t just that you’re tired during the day. Lack of sleep leads to poor performance at work or school, can affect critical decision-making abilities, and more. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that if you fall into this category and aren’t getting enough shuteye every day, there are things you can do to improve your situation. If you think you may suffer from a sleep disorder, it’s best to consult with a doctor. But if you don’t, there are environmental and routine changes you can make in order to sleep soundly through the night. And we can help with that. By identifying what’s causing your lack of sleep and the type of sleeper you are, you can make a plan of action and start to take simple steps to get those hours in.

Determine Your Sleep Type

If you hang out on the Internet often (and we’re betting you do, since you’re reading about how to get more sleep), you’ve probably come across articles telling you not to consume caffeine or blue light after certain hours of the day. While those can be good tips, they don’t know you. The best way to change your sleep will depend largely on the type of sleeper you are. We’ve identified four different types of sleepers: The Furnace, The Popsicle, The Knot, and The Overthinker.

The Furnace is always hot, no matter how high the AC is. The Popsicle, on the other hand, is always, well, frozen. The Knot wakes up with constant aches, pains, and strains. The Overthinker is a stressed-out sleeper.

Each of these types requires a different plan to get the best night's sleep possible, and the first step is figuring out which you are.
