Better Sleep for better Self Care

These are the top tips according to Harvard Health for better quality sleep:

* Exercise – Exercise boosts the effect of natural sleep hormones such as melatonin but don’t exercise too close to bedtime as it maybe too stimulating.
* Reserve bed for sleep – avoid using your bed for work or watching tv. The bed needs to be a stimulus for sleeping, not for wakefulness.

* Keep it comfortable

* Start a sleep ritual – As you would do with your kids or when you were a kid, there are bedtime routines. It the same when we are adults. Rituals help signal the body and mind that it’s coming to be time for sleep.
* Eat—but not too much
* Avoid alcohol and caffeine
* De-stress – maybe try one of TYT Meditations if you find you are stressed going to bed.
