Weekend vs. Weekday Sleep Routines


Life can throw you all sorts of curveballs, but keeping a consistent bedtime routine during the week and weekend can help you and your family achieve quality sleep. Here are a few tips to help you get the quality Zzzs you need.

 

Exercise

 

If you’re a late-night workout buff, try to finish your workouts at least 3 hours before bed to help enable optimal sleep throughout the night.

 

Screen Time

 

It’s easy for a 5 minute social media browse to turn into hours, especially while lying in bed. Ending screen time at least an hour before bed can help you get more quality Zzzs.

 

Journaling

 

Ah yes, that trusty ole to-do list! Although they can be helpful in organizing tasks, when it comes to bedtime your thoughts can continue racing about things undone, which disallows you to fall asleep. A good tip to easing the mind is to journal your thoughts before bed, which can alleviate stress and help you forget about what you need to do until the next day.

 

National Average Bedtime

 

We looked at how our SleepIQ® sleepers fared nationally when it came to a consistent sleep routine. The SleepIQ® data showed that during the weekday the national average bedtime was 10:28 p.m. while on the weekend the national average bedtime was 11:03 p.m. Is your nightly bedtime routine helping you and your family get the quality Zzzs you need?
