Still not getting ample sleep because of all the holiday-related tasks you need to finish? Here are more sleep tips that you may find handy.
1. Relegate other tasks
There’s really so much to do during the holidays that it feels like 24 hours isn’t enough for you to get everything done. If you feel like you’re already sacrificing hours of zzz’s just to finish something, step back and relegate other things in your to-do list to someone else. Ask your kids to do an extra chore and stop micromanaging everything so you can enjoy the season more and get some shuteye as well.
2. Take steps in minimizing noise
With all the parties, reunions, and get togethers going on, noise could also be a factor in you losing some zzz’s. If this is the case, you can always politely ask neighbors to tone it down (especially during the wee hours of the night) or take some measures on your own. Ear plugs, heavy drapes, and some ambient sound could help you block some noise from the outside. If it doesn’t work, you can always sleep in a different area, where there’s less noise.
3. Take naps
If you haven’t been getting ample shuteye during the night, you can always take naps to make up for some of your lost zzz’s. It will also help you get energized for everything you need to do.
This holiday season, while there’s just so much to do and so many people to see, take some time to spend on yourself. You might be missing out on some quality zzz’s, and that’s not the best way to end the year and start a new one. Make sure to get some high quality shuteye this holiday season. You’ll thank yourself for it come January.
