How can you get better sleep even with pain?

Restful sleep can be one of the toughest things to achieve when you’re in pain. Sleep is a hugely underestimated driver of pain so it’s important to support your sleep by practicing effective sleep hygiene strategies. 

Contrary to popular belief, supporting your sleep begins in the morning. You can support your circadian rhythm and natural melatonin regulation by going outside during the day, getting some sunlight, being active, and avoiding long naps. Optimize your sleep environment by ensuring you have a comfortable bed, using supportive cushions, reducing light and noise, and sleeping at an ideal temperature. Keeping a consistent sleep schedule and creating relaxing habits are equally important in helping the body and mind get into a relaxed state. A wind down routine can include listening to a guided meditation, taking a hot bath or reading a book, and anything else that may help in reducing your symptoms as much as possible. Do the best you can each night and remember, it’s all about progress, not perfection.
