Sweet Dreams: 5 Tips to Sleep Like A Baby

Sleep: Everyone needs it, but do you get enough? If you find yourself tossing and turning, unable to fall asleep, or exhausted during the day, you may not be getting enough restful sleep.

 

  • Cut the Caffeine
    Caffeine works by blocking the chemicals in your brain that cause sleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends not consuming anything with caffeine after 3 p.m., in order to sleep more soundly. Try a shot of 24K™ to keep you alert throughout the day without leaving you too wired to relax at night.
  • Lose Weight
    Many sleep disorders including sleep apnea can be caused by obesity. The extra pounds make it more difficult for respiration, causing your body to stop breathing during sleep. Losing the extra pounds will improve your sleep. And the better you sleep, the more easily the pounds will come off. For healthy weight loss, replace one or two meals per day with Slimplicity®.
  • Don’t Exercise Right Before Bed
    While trimming your waistline can lead to better sleep, scheduling your workout right before bed will make it more difficult to fall asleep. A good workout will raise your body’s internal temperature and burn calories, but hours after your workout has ended, your body’s temperature can remain elevated. Hit the gym right before or after work so your body has time to relax and cool off before bedtime.
  • Make Your Bedroom A Sleep-Only Space
    Get rid off all the distractions like the TV, the computer and your cell phone. Removing these things from your sleep space can help you focus on sleep instead of everything else going on in the world. Try blackout shades to keep out the light. Creating a space where you only sleep will help your body know exactly what it is supposed to do when it enters that space.
  • Get On A Schedule
    Our ‘internal clock’ is regulated by circadian rhythms, our biological 24-hour cycle. You can train your body to wake and sleep at certain times. Determine a set bedtime and wake-up time. You should allow for seven to nine hours of sleep, according to the CDC. The more you stick to the schedule, the easier it will be for you to wake up in the morning, fall asleep each night and get the most restful sleep possible.
