Sleep tips from Dr. Michelle

Sleep is so important!

It is when our bodies rest and repair and heal.

 

Here are some quick and simple tips for getting the best night sleep.

– have a great bedroom environment that is dark with minimal noise

– comfortable bed and pillow

– no screens before bed

– exercise (but not before bed)

– good diet and no alcohol before bed (it disturbs sleep)

– look into a magnesium or melatonin supplement if needed (talk to your health practitioner)

– get out in the sunshine during the day

– go to bed and get up at the same time each day

– deep breathes and relax your nervous system

 

Good night and sweet dreams!
