5 Mistakes that Are Disrupting Your Sleep

Jan 12, 2016

Sleeping will take up about a third of your life, so it important to make sure that you are doing it right to get the best rest possible.

Here are a few mistakes that you can make that will disrupt your quality of sleep.

Pillow Problems

People often visit our Snellville chiropractors due to neck pain, and many don’t know the cause of their discomfort. They may be surprised to find that their pillow is actually the culprit.

A pillow that does not provide adequate support and comfort can lead to a poor night’s sleep along with chronic neck pain.

Sleeping with too many pillows can also lead to bad posture and can also result in muscle tightness.


We all know how important exercise is for overall health, but it can be a culprit in disrupting your sleep, especially if you exercise right before bed. Exercise can stimulate your body and will make it hard to both slow down and to have a good night’s sleep.

Bed Time Irregularity

The human body craves consistency, so it is important to go to bed at a similar time each night. Getting up around the same time each morning is also important in improving the quality of sleep that you get. Try to be a creature of habit when it comes to your sleep.

Caffeine Consumption

Caffeine is a powerful stimulant that may stay in your body for 12 hours. If you want to get a good night’s sleep, it is recommended that you stop drinking caffeinated beverages at least 4-6 hours before you go to bed.

Sleeping on Your Stomach

Lying on your stomach while sleeping can cause your head to turn a certain way. This type of seeping is a major contribution to muscle tightness and chronic neck pain. It can also prevent upper cervical adjustments completed by a chiropractor from holding up well.

Your chiropractor in Snellville, GA can help you to recover from neck pain and other injuries that may result from poor sleep.
