Every day I promise myself I’m going to go to bed earlier than the night before. And it NEVER happens. I’ve recently made a habit of shutting every electronic off by 10:00pm and picking up a book. This usually does the trick, I normally fall sleep 15 minutes in to reading. I find that calming my mind down before going to sleep helps me get the best night of sleep possible. While there is always that restless night of sleep, getting a good night of sleep is imperative to your health.
Our bodies heal, our immune systems get revitalized, hormones and metabolism is balances and overall maintenance take place during sleep. A good night’s sleep, not just once in a while, but on an ongoing basis, is absolutely critical for your good health.
Here are some tips to getting that best night of sleep courtesy of Goop:
1. Wake Up Right
2. Take Mindfulness Breaks
3. Get Some Natural Sunlight Every Day
5. Avoid Caffeine
6. Try an Elimination Diet
7. Eat In Accordance With Your Body Rhythms
