The Rest You Need
With so much going on in life, sometimes its hard to prioriti[z]e the rest our body needs. For some, falling asleep is half the problem. Here are a few tips to help:
Minimi[z]e stress and anxiety. Keep a to-do list going throughout the day so that at night you can focus on getting sleep.
Avoid caffeine. The effects of caffeine can last over 8 hours, so watch out for that afternoon cup of coffee or caffeinated drink.
Kill the lights. Create a tranquil atmosphere where you can relax before bed. Be sure your sleeping space is as dark as possible.
Unplug. Turn off the computer and TV and set aside your phone to help relax.
Check your mattress and pillow. Make sure your back and neck is getting proper support at night (I can help).
