How to Get Lots of Sleep Before Your Wedding

How to Prep For Your Wedding and Not Lose Sleep

couple sleepingThe months leading up to your wedding can be stressful and exhausting. Speaking from personal experience, the quality of sleep, or the amount of sleep you get during this time often takes a beating — let's just say my sleepwalking is in overdrive at the moment. When this happens, a vicious cycle begins to brew because as soon as you aren't getting enough sleep, you'll start eating more, feel foggy-headed, and you're more susceptible to getting sick.

In an effort to stay on track with your sleep cycle, make sure you get at least seven hours of sleep at night so you can be alert throughout the day. Even if that means having to go to bed earlier than usual, it's worth it. Feeling tired and exhausted will decrease your productivity, and you'll accomplish less than if you were to sleep a little longer. And if you're finding it difficult to sleep at night, try making your bedroom dark, so that the darkness signals your brain to wind down. Also try eating at least two hours before bed so your food has time to digest, and run a hot bath to clear your mind and relax your muscles. Make sure it's a team effort with you and your partner. Trying these tips together will help put you both on the same sleep cycle. And while it seems like you have a never-ending to-do list for your wedding, it's more likely that you'll get things done effectively if you and your partner are well rested.
