😴 Sleep sets the foundation for almost every aspect of your health.

Getting enough good quality sleep at the right time can be the difference between feeling your best & feeling your worst.

Your goal should always be to get between 7-9 hours of sleep with as few disturbances during the night that cause you to wake.

However, when your sleep is off your body will know it & over time you can see it manifest as:

  • Increased occurrences of colds
  • Stomach distress (gas, bloating, etc.)
  • Difficulty remembering & processing information
  • Irritability & mood swings
  • Lessened sex drive
  • Tunnel vision, double vision & blurriness
  • Weight gain due to being awake longer, hence eating more
  • Headaches & migraines
  • Muscle & joint pains

The GOOD news here is there are always solutions to problems.

To help improve your sleep, focus on the following:

  • Avoid taking naps during the day
  • Keep a consistent sleep/wake schedule 7 days a week
  • Set your thermostat to 65-68 dF to keep your bedroom cool
  • Keep your bedroom as dark as possible
  • Avoid using electronics 2 hours before going to bed
  • Have a pre-bed routine (brush your teeth, read a book, meditate, stretch, etc)
  • Try not to exercise 4 hours before bed
  • Get exposure to natural sunlight within 1st 10-30 minutes of waking
  • Diaphragmatic, 4-7-8, or box breathing techniques

So you can see just how important it is to get both good quality & quantity of sleep, as if you don’t, you’re body will start to shut down.
