How to Get a Better Night’s Sleep When You Travel

When I began traveling, I found that more often than not, I had trouble getting to sleep in a strange place.

Sleeping in a different bed in  unfamiliar surroundings can throw things off.

sleepAfter some trial and error, I figured out 3 ways to make sure I get a good night’s sleep. They may work for you, too. 

  • Bring your own pillow. The pillows in most hotel rooms are too thick for my liking and give me a stiff neck, so I started bringing my pillow with on trips. As soon as I did, I began sleeping much better. Now, I wake up rested instead of cranky.
  • Install a white noise app. A long time ago, I had a ceiling fan in my bedroom and I got used to falling asleep to the whirring sound of the fan. Ever since then, I have trouble falling asleep unless there’s some kind of white noise. My solution? I installed a white noise app on my phone so I have it with me no matter where I am.  
  • Bring a few chamomile tea bags.  In the rare event that I still have trouble sleeping, a cup of chamomile tea helps me relax enough to fall asleep.
