HEALTH HACKS | Catch more Zzz's

It's easy to see that we perform better in life when we are well rested.  Getting enough sleep can sharpen your memory and creativity, lower stress levels, regulate metabolism and much more!

Here are some quick tips for sleepier nights and brighter days:

Try to set a sleep schedule  Going to bed and waking up at the same time will help set your body's internal clock and improve the quality of your sleep.  We mean weekends too!  If you must nap, try to make it a quicky; 15-20 minutes only.

Stop scrolling and unwind Put away the screens 1-2 hours before bed.  The blue light that is emitted from your phone, tablet, computer, or TV is especially disruptive to that precious sleep clock.

Workup a sweat  People who exercise regularly tend to sleep better and feel less sleepy during the day.  The more vigorous the workout, the more powerful the sleep benefits!  But even light exercise, such as a 10 minute walk, improves sleep quality.  BE PATIENT: it can take several months of regular activity before you experience the full sleep-promoting effects. 

Sweet dreams!
