Healthy Sleep Habits

As the days start to get shorter, we should try and find ways to get to bed earlier. Getting more sleep is actually one of the most positive things you can do for your overall health! Here are a few tips for improving your sleep:

Power down your electronic devices at least an hour before bed. The lights from these devices stimulate your brain and can disrupt your ability to get into a deep sleep by lowering your production of Melatonin (a naturally occurring sleep hormone). If you don’t want to take melatonin you can get it naturally by drinking Tart Cherry juice in the evening, which promotes your body’s production of melatonin.

Start a journal: when you get into bed, write down 3 things you are grateful for in a notebook or a journal. Focusing on what you are grateful for draws your attention to what is positive in your life, which works wonders for promoting better sleep.

And last, program what you want to happen! This one is easier than it sounds…simply imagine or visualize a great night sleep, and waking up happy and refreshed. Studies show that the mind is a powerful thing, and you can use your wisely by deciding to have the quality of life you deserve.

Yours in Health,
