A good night's sleep is critical to your long term health and well-being. It is often overlooked, but consistent focus on sleep habits can have a huge impact on your energy levels and mood.
1. Establish a regular bedtime and waking time. This sets your body up for success, whether weekday or weekend!
2. Create a bedtime routine. This can include some time to wind down and prepare your body for sleep, a warm bath (with Lavender Bath Salts) or some light stretching indicates to your nervous system it is time to relax.
3. Limit caffeine and alcohol close to bed. Creating a cut off time to stop caffeine will aid in ease of falling asleep. Alcohol may may make you sleepier, but will impact the quality of your sleep through the night.
4. Limit use of electronics before bed. This includes all screens, as the blue light can disrupt the body's natural sleep/wake cycles.
5.Get outside during the day. Exposure to natural light during the day helps set your circadian rhythm, which tells your body when to rest and when to wake.
6. Get moving. Consistent exercise has been shown to help you fall asleep quicker and sleep deeper during the night!
