Sleep, Stress & Mood
A good night’s sleep can often be the difference between a good day and a bad day. If you’re finding it difficult to get all the zzz’s you need, we have a few ideas. You can incorporate some of our sleep tips below (don’t skip the blackout curtains) or try supplements designed to help you relax and sleep a little better.
Simple Sleep Tips
Getting a good night’s sleep doesn’t have to be as complicated as it feels. Try a few of these tips to see if it helps you get the rest you need.
- Keep a schedule. Try to fall asleep and wake up at the same time each night so that your body will be more likely to keep a natural rhythm.
- Go dark. If you don’t have light-blocking curtains, consider installing some.
- Get moving. A regular exercise routine helps you feel more energized during the day, but it can also help you fall asleep at night by encouraging your hormones to function properly.
- Nix caffeine. Three hours before bedtime, cut the caffeine.
- Try a new temp. A room cooled to 67-68°F is optimal for sleep.
