Lack of deep, restful sleep, especially when it’s chronic, can have significant daytime consequences. It can interfere with our ability to concentrate, our decision-making skills and reaction times, and can make us more irritable(!) and susceptible to illness.
So What Can You do to Improve Sleep Quality?
Practicing “healthy sleep hygiene” can go a long way to helping insomnia:
• Stop caffeine consumption after 2 pm.
• Unplug from the TV or computer at least an hour (preferably more) before bed, to give your nervous system a break from constant stimulating input (and electromagnetic radiation).
• Have a relaxing bath scented with your favorite essential oils – lavender, neroli, or your own personal blend.
• Read an uplifting book before you turn out the light.
• Do a short meditation.
