A good night's sleep… such a simple concept… yet not simple to come by especially during these unprecedented times. I recently hosted a webinar with my good friend Nancy H. Rothstein, aka The Sleep Ambassador®, and I'm happy to share 3 of Nancy's tips. (A link to the webinar is included at the end.)
1. A Good Night's Sleep Begins in the Morning:
- How you start your day affects how you end it.
- Make your bed. Get dressed for the day. Make a to-do list.
- What you do during the day can help you sleep at night.
- Eat healthy—stick to a schedule and be mindful of what you eat.
- Stay hydrated—water helps your organs function properly and boosts your immune system.
- Find ways to move—do yoga, jog, work out with an exercise video, walk your stairs.
2. A Bedtime Routine is Essential:
- Be consistent with your bed and wake up time.
- Keep your bedroom cool, dark, quiet and neat.
- Tune out tech! Leave electronics out of the bedroom. Yes, that includes your phone.
3. Transition to sleep peacefully:
- Calm your mind and body through reading, meditation, showering. Give yourself an hour to wind down, without TV, phones, etc.
- Once in bed, focus on gratitude and think positive thoughts.
- Make sure to breathe through your nose.
Good sleep is possible and attainable for all of us. Investing in your sleep is a key to living life well… and like sound (pun intended!) financial planning, integral to Maximizing Your Return on Life!
