How to Sleep Like a Baby

By Donna Stark

Most of us love waking up feeling completely refreshed and energized, but not all of us are able to enjoy such a luxury. In fact, many people struggle with getting the sleep their body needs and suffer from a variety of consequences because of that. Quality rest is vital for optimal health and wellness, so you need to make sure it is high on your priority list! How can you do that? Great question! Here's what the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic recommend.

Make Some Investments

You don't have to be in the financial world to invest in your future. You just need to be looking for something that will give a return or benefit. And if you are looking for things that will benefit your health, look no further than your bedroom. If you aren't getting the amount of quality rest you would like, take a look at how much you have invested in your sleep environment. Do you have a supportive mattress and pillow set? Could you use a white noise machine or air purifier? It may be time to make some serious investments so you can get the rest you deserve!

Commit to a Consistent Routine

Your circadian rhythm could be thrown off track if you go to bed and wake up at different times each day, so try to stick to a consistent sleep schedule. Following a bedtime routine will encourage your body to sleep and wake up when it is supposed to, and that will help improve everything during your days.

Reduce Blue Light Exposure

If you are looking for a reason to remove all your electronic devices from your bedroom, blue light exposure is it! The blue light that is emitted from your tablets, cellphone, and TV will keep your body awake and make it harder to fall asleep. If you don't want to or can't remove these devices, head to the store and buy yourself a pair of blue light glasses. It also helps to turn everything off at least an hour or so before bed.

Avoid Drinking and Eating Certain Things

It's important to pay attention to the food and drinks you consume right before bed. Try to avoid sugary snacks and heavy meals, and steer clear of caffeinated beverages! If you have to snack before hitting the hay, grab a handful of almonds, a banana, a glass of water, or some chamomile tea. Just be sure to keep it light and healthy!

Sleep Like a Baby

Getting the recommended amount of sleep each night will help you wake up refreshed and energized! On top of that, it will also ensure optimal health and wellness. So, go ahead and follow the tips above. You may be surprised by how well they end up working.
