Get into your “sleep better” era

Trouble sleeping can affect anyone from time to time. Persistent insomnia (a disorder that can make it hard for one to fall asleep or stay asleep) can increase your risk and chances of developing heart disease and type 2 diabetes. A lack of sleep will not only make you groggy the following day and maybe moody, but it can also result in gaining weight. If you are daydreaming of a good night’s sleep, here are some tips to consider:

  • Let’s drop the temp! The ideal temperature to sleep is between 65 and 72 degrees. Cooler for women going through menopause or hot flashes.
  • Keep it dark! That includes your phone! Less visual disruption means better sleep quality. Put your phone away and stop scrolling.
  • Limit the nighttime snacks. Certain foods such as chocolate, coffee, and alcohol can keep you from sleeping better. These are stimulants.
  • Make a sleep ritual. Stress gets us all, and having a ritual to decompress and destress at the end of the day can keep your worries from keeping you up late at night.
