Better Sleep, Better Life

Sleep is essential for physical and emotional (and spiritual) wellbeing. It is during your restful sleep that your body does all of its repairing. When sleep isn't optimal it can (and will!) majorly affect your quality of life. What are some tips for improving your sleep?


Focus on proper nutrition throughout the day, especially in the hours leading up to your bedtime. Aim to have your last meal at least 3 hours prior to bed and avoid sugary foods at your last meal.


Start a bedtime ritual. For example, my routine is to get my pjs on, brush my teeth, fill my water bottle for my bedside, plug my phone in to charge and apply some lotion to my hands. This tells my brain, “its about that time’” and I begin to wind down. *Bonus if you use some lavender essential oils and do some nice, deep relaxing breaths



Leave the TV for the family room! This is a big one and not a popular rule to implement. But trust me. When you take the TV out of your room, you are then sending, yet another signal to your brain that when you are getting in bed, it's time for just that, bed. The flashing lights of a tv (or of your cell phone for that matter) keep you brain activated and on high alert making it harder to get to sleep and stay asleep.

Give these things a try and I guarantee you will be sleeping better in no time.
