In a chronically sleep deprived society, studies have shown us that most of us are not getting enough quality sleep. When we think about what our bodies need to survive, the obvious health essentials like diet and exercise come to mind, but rarely do our minds drift to acknowledge the importance of sleep. In truth, sleep is the foundation in which those two other pillars will sit on.
When it comes to something as essential as sleep, we often don’t give it the thought and care it deserves. The first step to a meaningful night’s sleep is committing to regular pre-sleep routine that will ultimately prepare you for a quality night sleep. Set your room temperature to 20 degrees, as dropping your core body temperature is essential. Put away all devices that over stimulate your mind and pupils before bed, as its important to slowly prepare your body to wind down and drift into a state of rest. Ensure you are not consuming too many foods or beverage stimulants before bedtime, as these can add to keeping your body filled with energy.
