3 tips to help you get a good nights rest:
- All kinds of good things happen when you sleep. Sleep is extremely helpful to healing many ailments. Our bodies rest, detox, de-stress and rejuvenate while we sleep.
- Getting a good 7-8 hours of sound sleep per night is critical for healing and optimally functioning throughout the day. We all know how awful it is to drag our bum through the day when we’ve had little sleep, anxiously awaiting bedtime to get over it! All kinds of good things happen when you sleep; your metabolism resets, inflammation is reduced, your memory is improved, you can more easily lose weight, reduce the risk of depression, and your body repairs itself.
- Invest in comfortable bedding, including your mattress, pillows, and sheets. Look for a mattress and pillows that support your spine, and use bedding that helps you maintain your ideal temperature at night.
