Make Time For Exercise During The Day
In addition to all the obvious health benefits of regular exercise, physical activity helps to tire your child out and make sure they get a sound night’s sleep.
According to one study, every hour a child spends doing nothing adds 3 whole minutes to the time it takes for them to drift off. Conversely, physical activity helps them to fall asleep much quicker. So, if you’re struggling to get your child to settle into a routine, introducing physical activity into their schedule is sure to make a difference.
As a bonus, the study found children who fall asleep faster are also more likely to sleep for longer.
