Holistic Health Tips #8


Improve your sleeping habits – Perhaps one of the best things that everyone can do to improve their overall well-being is to moderate their sleeping patterns. Unfortunately, poor sleep is a habit learned by nearly everyone during the teenage years. It is critical to allow your body the time it needs to unwind and relax so that you can be rejuvenated. If you feel tired during the day, when you awaken in the morning or exhausted before bedtime it’s a sign that you are not getting the right amount of sleep. This could be too much or too little. Try setting aside at least 7 hours for sleep each night, getting into bed no less than half an hour prior to the time that you want to be asleep. If you do this for a few weeks, you will find positive improvements in your overall health and productivity.

    This sounds like a great tip, but just how do you manage it with children? I find that they are the number one disruptor to getting a good nights sleep.

      Hi Mat, Ah yes…children…having 5 I truly understand the disruptions…however, implementing a routine will help not only the children but yourself as well. Too often as parents we wait for the children to go to bed to do our own ‘things’ however, this is when we should also sleep…once they get older it will get easier…good luck :)

    Sleep is important however sometimes we need to get along with less than the prescribed 7-8 hours. Life simply gets in the way.
