Make sleep a priority

  • by

Have you recently asked yourself: “How often do I get a good night’s sleep?”

Like good diet and exercise, sleep is a critical component to overall health.

To pave the way for better sleep, do this:

  1. Stick to a sleep schedule.
  2. Practice a relaxing bedtime ritual.
  3. Exercise daily.
  4. Evaluate your bedroom set up to ensure ideal temperature, sound and light.
  5. Sleep on a comfortable mattress and pillows.
  6. Moderate sleep disruptors. e.g.: Alcohol and caffeine.
  7. Turn off electronics before bed.

To help create real change:

Track your sleep habits over a one- or two-week period.
Pay careful attention to your mood, energy and health after a poor night’s sleep versus a good one.

Then review what works best for you.

Most importantly, make sleep a priority.
