Welcome back to the blog! I am so happy you are here. In today's post, we are going to be going over my top tips for getting a better night's sleep. Getting a good night's sleep is crucial for our overall health and well-being.
Here are some tips to help you sleep better:
Stick to a consistent sleep schedule: Our bodies function best with a consistent routine, so try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends.
Optimize your circadian rhythm: Natural sunlight or bright light during the day helps keep our circadian rhythm healthy, improving our daytime energy and nighttime sleep quality. Try to expose your eyes to natural light upon waking and the sunset in the evening.
Limit blue light consumption: Blue light tricks our bodies into thinking it's daytime, making it harder to fall asleep. To reduce your blue light exposure, wear blue light-blocking glasses, use the night shift feature on your phone, and turn off any bright overhead lights before bed.
Create a restful environment: Keep your bedroom cool, minimize external noise, and eliminate artificial lights from devices like alarm clocks and phones. Try diffusing lavender essential oils to promote relaxation.
Manage stress levels: To calm your mind before bed, try journaling, planning your next day, or practicing meditation. I love the Superhuman App, but will also put on binaural beats as I fall asleep to help calm my nervous system.
Consider supplementation: Magnesium Bis-Glycinate, L-Theanine, Insomnitol, and Arrae Sleep are all supplements that may help improve sleep quality, but always check with a healthcare provider to ensure they are safe for you.
By implementing these tips into your nightly routine, you can improve the quality of your sleep and wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
