I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Influence Central for Pernix Therapeutics. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
It’s no surprise that in today’s day and age – sleep sometimes gets put on the back burner. I’ve personally been trying to practice more of the healthy shut – eye strategies I talked about last month. And while I think I have made some good progress, I’ve also had some occasions where I didn’t exactly hit my healthy sleep habits goal.
How I’ve done using the 4 Sleep Strategy Tips:
Get Comfortable – I have been winding down and getting in a relaxed frame of mind before bed, by taking a bath most nights. It really helps me calm down, and I often use soothing bath bombs with scents like lavender. I enjoy this step, and I excel at it, if I do say so myself 😉
Go Dark – I’ve been making sure my bedroom isn’t full of bright lights and illuminated buttons. I also switched to an alarm clock that has a less bright face.
Get Active Early – I’ve been trying to take a walk in the early evening. When I do it I really feel more relaxed by bedtime.
Sign Off – Signing off from social media at least one hour before bedtime, has been one area that I’ve been really focusing on. And I let my husband know I needed a little extra accountability in this area. Asking hubby for help on that, may have been a mistake!
But aside from a few notable slip ups, I’ve mostly kept my vow to make sleep a bigger priority in my life! And I’m glad I have!
Most Americans acknowledge the benefits of practicing healthy shut eye strategies – but did you know only 50% of Americans actually follow one? I was previously in that sleep deprived group, but I’ve found that doing a few simple things really helps me to get better sleep – and more of it. And that makes everyone in our family happier.
Cranky mommy = misery for the whole family.
Feeling helpless and wondering if your lack of sleep is a lost cause? It’s not! There are effective treatment options available for those suffering with insomnia, but practicing healthy sleep habits may not be enough for everyone.
If you have trouble sleeping through the night, you really should have a conversation with your doctor about your routine, lifestyle and also your symptoms!
