A New Year’s Resolution You Can Keep In Your Sleep
New Year’s resolutions aren’t always easy to keep, and chances are there are a few you have had trouble sticking to. This year, make a new year’s resolution that is so easy to keep, you can do
it in your sleep.
Regular sleep impacts every aspect of our lives, including heart health, weight control, immunity, mood, memory, productivity and even our physical appearance. Don’t know where to start? Here are 5 easy tips to help put you on track to getting a better night’s sleep and starting the New Year off well-rested:
SWITCH UP YOUR EXERCISE ROUTINE:
Regular exercise can help you get in shape, but the time of day you choose to exercise can affect your sleep too. Mornings are best, but if the evening is the only time you have for exercise, try yoga, Pilates or a brisk walk.
ENJOY YOUR CAFFEINE:
Just watch what time you drink it. Consuming caffeine in the afternoon can delay the onset of sleep and can cause you to wake up during the night.
TAKE A NATURAL SLEEP AID SUPPLEMENT:
A supplement containing melatonin and stress-relieving herbs, such as Jamieson Healthy SLEEP™ can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. The only side effects you’ll experience are waking up well-rested and with a feeling of pure bliss as you finally get the sleep you had been waiting for. Remember to always consult your doctor prior to taking any natural supplement.
ESTABLISH A BEDTIME ROUTINE:
Getting ready for bed at the same time each night can help your body get accustomed to feeling tired at the same time each day and it will be much easier to fall asleep.
LOOK OFF-SCREEN AND GO OFF-LINE:
Try to distance yourself from the screen at least one hour before bedtime. Screens emit light that can alter our melatonin levels (melatonin is the hormone that helps us fall asleep).
