The importance of a good-quality sleep cannot be overstated. During sleep, the body is repairing itself on a cellular level and the brain is going through memory consolidation. For these reasons, poor sleep or not enough sleep can affect every single thing in your life, including your health, hormones, focus and cognitive abilities. In fact, chronic sleep deprivation can even increase your risk of developing cancer!
The good news is that you don’t have to keep waking up in the middle of the night or stare at the ceiling and lie in bed for hours without being able to sleep. Simple lifestyle changes can help:
- Try to go to bed and wake up at similar times every day,
- Don’t drink coffee or any caffeinated beverages after 4 PM,
- Go outside during daylight (walk or run),
- Don’t use technology an hour before going to bed,
- Don’t exercise right before going to bed,
And finally, drink a sleep-inducing homemade beverage before going to bed.
