The Sleep Conundrum: How to Get More

By Genevieve Cunningham

When it comes to sleeping, most of us have two thoughts. Why can’t I sleep? Or how can I get more? Sleep seems to elude all of us as we age. When we were younger, we could sleep for 10 or 12 hours at a time. Now we’re lucky to get a solid five or six. But even though it might seem hopeless, more sleep might be possible. Take a look at these simple tips that might lead to better sleep day in and day out.

It’s All About Your Body Health

One way to approach a lack of sleep is to improve your overall body health. A body that is unhealthy suffers in many areas, and sleep happens to be one of them. Some tips for better body health and better sleep might include:

  • Exercise - If you’re not exercising, you need to start. It provides your body with a significantly healthy boost and also tires you out, which might promote sleep. If you DO exercise and still can’t sleep, try adjusting the time at which you exercise. Working out too late in the day might have the opposite effect and keep you up at night.

  • Chiropractic Care - You’d be amazed at just how much the health of the spine affects the health of your entire body. Because it is so intricately linked to so many functions, slight problems within the spine might cause significant problems with your general health. You may notice pain, fatigue, insomnia, and many others. Getting the spine properly aligned may be just what you need to boost overall health and encourage sleep.

Other Tips for More Sleep

Though taking care of your body should be at the top of your list, there are some other methods that you might consider. Some of these include:

  • Turn Down the Temp - Lower temperatures are more conducive to sleep. If your room is too hot, you’ll toss and turn.

  • Turn Off the Lights - All of them! Light tricks the brain into thinking that it is daylight, which can keep you awake. Turn off the lights, pull the curtains closed, and turn electronic devices away from you.

  • Practice a Routine - Just like any other part of your life, routine can make or break you. Setting up a certain routine might signal to your body that it’s time to hit the hay, which will promote better sleep more quickly.

While most of these methods can be done all on your own, you might need help with chiropractic care.
