A Good's Night's Sleep? Who has time for that??
SLEEP?? WHO HAS LOTS OF TIME FOR THAT?? We so underestimate the power of sleep and the part it plays in our health. Lack of sleep can wreck havoc with our hormones, our motivation, our concentration, our ability to burn fats, our insulin levels, and the restoration of our entire body's systems. Here are some tips towards high-quality sleep:
- Eliminate electronics from your room and your routine for 1 hour before bed. The blue light on ANY electronic interrupts your natural hormone levels and alerts it to stay awake instead of going to sleep.
- Use blackout curtain to make the room dark.
- Develop a good pre-sleep routine that your body will get used to.
- Optimize your body's sleeping temperature by taking a hot shower before bed and turning down the thermostat. We naturally sleep better in a cooler room.
Happy zzzz's make for healthier, happy people!!
