Sleep is an important part of wellness because it is the time when our brain and body recover from mental and physical strain. Without enough good quality sleep our performance will suffer.
Here are three tips to get a better night’s sleep:
- Sleep Schedule: Having a consistent sleep schedule (even on the weekends!) makes it much easier for your body to align. Try to go to sleep and wake up around the same time every day.
- Environment: We sleep best in dark, quiet, and cooler environments. Limit unnecessary light exposure, make sure there is little variation in ambient noise, and drop the temperature to as close to 68°F as possible.
- Lifestyle: Stimulants and stress can severly limit our ability to sleep. Limit alcohol consumption >2hrs before bed, avoid caffeine intake after 1pm, and take time to meditate or do breath work before bed.
Give these a try and let us know if they work for you!
