Getting enough sleep is an important part of your health. In addition to reduced fatigue, sleep is great for weight management, improved immune function, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, clearer thinking, and improved emotional health. Most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep every night to function at their best, but a lot of us are coming up short.
Here are five tips for better sleep!
Exercise can have a big impact on the quality of your sleep. Staying physically active on a regular basis will make it easier for you to enjoy a good night’s sleep. At Yoli, we recommend working out for 30-45 minutes three to five times a week. If you don’t currently have an exercise routine, try using these tips to find the perfect workout for you!
Sleep in a dark, cool room.
Improving your sleep can be as simple as making some changes to your environment. Sleeping in a dark, cool room is best. You should also make sure that your bedroom is quiet and free of distractions to avoid anything that may keep you awake.
Don’t drink caffeine in the evenings.
We all love our Passion and Thermo Burn, but the caffeine in both products can affect your sleep if you use them in the late afternoon and evening. While caffeine affects everyone differently, most people do best when they stop drinking caffeinated beverages at least a few hours before they start winding down for the evening. It’s important to find what works best for you and your sleeping schedule!
Turn off your devices.
Between our TVs, computers, phones, and tablets, we’re all more connected than ever. Unfortunately, it’s incredibly easy for these devices to captivate our attention long past the time we should be sleeping. Backlit devices also stimulate your brain, keeping you alert when you should be winding down. Turn off your devices at least thirty minutes before you go to bed for a better night’s sleep.
If you struggle to enjoy high-quality sleep on a regular basis, try Dream! Dream is a safe, non-habit-forming sleep aid designed to help you enhance the quality of your sleep. It uses a proprietary blend called Z-Rest to provide you with nutrients that support restful sleep, including valerian root extract. It’s a great option if you’re looking for a good night’s sleep that will leave you feeling refreshed and alert!*
