Do you need more energy for your workouts? Do you need motivation to get up in the morning and get to the gym but too tired to try? Do you want more sleep at night, but find you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep? Find out how solving sleep problems can drastically effect the rest of your waking day. Healthy living, proper diet and sleep are all intricately related to helping you grab hold of a better life. By following these tips, you can alter sleep habits and routines, ultimately affecting the quality of your sleep, thus resulting in a higher quality life.
Get Your Beauty Rest
Figure out how much sleep you are getting a night. Average individuals need between seven and eight hours a night. If you are not getting the full amount you need to operate on, and sleep deprived during the day, this could be affecting your health. Sleep deprivation can affect appetite, weight gain, immune system and even depression. If you need more sleep at night, begin by backing up bedtime by 15 minute increments each week until you are feeling refreshed in the morning.
Maintain a Bedtime Routine
Going to bed and getting up the same time every day, no matter how much sleep you had the night before will adjust your internal clock and will eventually set itself with a consistent schedule. The closer you can keep a routine, the more your body will recognize and respond appropriately to falling asleep and waking up.
Don’t Forget Your Vitamin D
Most importantly, sleep disorders are in part due to vitamin D deficiency. Not having enough vitamin D will affect the quality of your sleep, the amount of sleep you get and your mood on waking up. Healthy sun exposure is the best source of vitamin D. Limit your exposure to morning or early afternoon, as the vitamin D temporarily pauses the production of melatonin, the sleep hormone.
