Sleep Tips

Unfortunately sleep is often given a low priority in modern life, taking a back seat to our busy schedules and lifestyles. Yet sleep is as essential to good health as diet and exercise, and as necessary for survival as food and water.

Complex Activity

Sleep is a complex activity that greatly influences our waking hours. We can all benefit by going to bed at the same time at night and waking up at the same time each morning. Disrupting this simple schedule may lead to insomnia.

Wake Up with the Sun

Try to exercise 20 to 30 minutes each day but not within 5 hours before going to bed. Avoid nicotine, caffeine and alcohol prior to going to bed. Relax with a good book for an hour before going to sleep. Sleep until sunlight. If possible wake up with the sun. Sunlight helps our internal clock re-set itself, or use bright lights in the morning. Lastly, maintain a comfortable temperature, extreme temperatures may disrupt your sleep.
