5 Tips to a Better Night’s Sleep
Exercise during the day. Exercise improves sleep! It strengthens our circadian rhythms, promoting daytime alertness and bringing on sleepiness at night.
Limit Caffeine Late In The Day
Don’t consume caffeine late in the day. In one study, consuming caffeine up to 6 hours before sleep worsened sleep quality significantly. Also, dark chocolate has a high amount of caffeine so make sure you eat your chocolate no later than 4pm:)
Remove Technology From the Bedroom
Remove your technology out of the bedroom. Put your phone on silence and turn off noisy notifications at least an hour before bed.
Drink an herbal “nighttime” tea with sleep inducing herbs such as Traditional Medicinals Nighty Night with Valerian, or SleepyTime tea.
Try Using Essential Oils
There are many essential oils that can help you to relax and have a great night’s sleep.
