Hey, guys! Today, we’re happy to welcome Sarah Johnson of Tuck Sleep. As the manager of their community outreach program, she is working to raise awareness of how sleep affects everything in our lives: health, relationships, and more. Tuck provides sleep health information, news, and product reviews to help you get everything you need for a great night’s sleep. We’re all about it, especially since we’ve taken our self-care game up a few notches this year! Read on for some advice.

Finding the balance between productivity and comfort while you are planning a wedding can be difficult. Wedding planning is an added stress on your already stressful life, which can lead to a lot of sleep problems. Here are some tips to help you sleep a little bit better while you plan your wedding to the love your life.

Sleep Aids

If there are any sleep aids that have been prescribed to you by a doctor, such as a CPAP machine for sleep apnea or a mouthguard for teeth grinding, make sure that you are using them as directed. This includes taking medications at the correct time, as some medicines can cause people to feel more awake than they would like. If that’s the case for you, try adjusting when you take those medications to avoid sleeplessness.

Daily Yoga & Meditation

While this might seem counterintuitive, adding light exercise and focusing on the moment that you’re in can help you sleep better and feel less stressed over time. In just the space of a month, you could be feeling significantly better about your life and your wedding planning while getting a good night’s sleep thanks to the addition of daily yoga and meditation. There are all kinds of apps, guided lists, and videos to help you figure out the right routine for your lifestyle and needs. If you find that you are most jittery at night, try doing yoga with your partner to relax before bed.

Phone Use

We live in a world that is always connected to the Internet through our phones, tablets, and other devices. The blue light that your phone normally emits causes your brain to wake up and pay attention to it. Because we use our phones so often, this can severely disrupt our circadian rhythms and damage our ability to get to sleep at night.

Our bodies work best on a routine and messing up that routine with blue light is a huge problem in the developed world. This is especially a problem for older couples getting married. The older you get, the more issues you have with blue light reception. If you absolutely have to use your phone or another device at night, use the night shift mode, which puts a digital amber filter over your screen–it will help quite a bit.

If you find that the stress of planning your wedding is causing you to lose sleep regularly, it may be worth talking to a wedding planner. Depending on your budget, you can get help with particular items that are causing you stress, without breaking the bank. You may also want to talk to your doctor to see if there’s something you can do to avoid the anxiety as you go. The journey is as important as the destination, so remember to take care of yourself! Prioritizing your sleep means you can enjoy your wedding day too.
