When you’re living the RV life, the last thing you want to do is sleep. After all, you’ve got places to go, people to see and things to do. However, even the most active RVer needs some shuteye.

However, to make sure you can still get the sleep you need and have enough energy to tackle tomorrow’s adventures, here are some tips on how to make sure you sleep like a baby.
While hard to do, eating healthy will virtually guarantee a good night’s sleep. Yes, it’s tempting to stop off at a burger joint and have the latest double and triple-bacon burger, but resisting that temptation and having a light salad or pasta will make you feel much better at bedtime. Also, avoid caffeinated beverages such as coffee, soda or energy drinks prior to bedtime, or you’ll be wired all night long.
More people are discovering the benefits of meditation, and so should you. Sitting quietly in a dark room and letting go of the day’s worries can work wonders before lying down for the night. Many people report feeling completely rejuvenated when they wake up the next morning, especially people who consider themselves light sleepers.

Experts suggest reading inspirational books or humorous books before bedtime, ensuring you’ll be in a happy and optimistic mood when you close your eyes.
