5 Ways to a Better Night's Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep is vital to well-being,

yet women in particular, often tend to burn the candle at both ends. Which eventually causes problems as our “rest and recuperation” needs are not met. Illness, fatigue, and irritability are only a few of the side effects associated with sleep deprivation.

Sleeping Better, burning the candle at both end.

Harvard Medical School recommends these tips to get a good night’s rest:

 

1. Create a sleep sanctuary

Keep your room cool and dark. Ban television from your bedroom. Keep all electronics, except alarm clock out of your sleeping area.

 

2. Avoid caffeine in the pm

Caffeine can keep you jacked up for hours after drinking it.

Coffee beans and alarm clock.

3. Exercise early

Avoid exercise 3 hrs. before bed. Similarly,

caffeine and exercise can excite your nervous system.

4. Set a wake up and sleep schedule

Stick to your schedule, especially during your work week.

 

5. Nap early & only for short periods of time

Pm naps can interfere with your ability to fall asleep at a decent hour. If you must nap, “power nap” Mark Twain style, for only 10-20 minutes.

 

 

“Sleep is the best meditation.”
