I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about sleep and improving our sleep sanctuary. Here’s a couple of amazing articles I’ve been reading and listening to about sleep, why it’s so important, and how to improve the quality and quantity you’re getting.
Sleep is different for everyone and I highly suggest keeping a log to figure out what works best for you. I track the things that seem to effect my nights the most: menstrual cycle day (ladies, this can be huge!), what time I went to bed and woke up, hours slept, supplements, sugar and alcohol consumption, and other activities leading up to bedtime like tv / internet usage, reading, exercise, and snacks. This gives me an idea of what works and what doesn’t, and helps me to take my sleep into my own hands.
Getting a good eight hours of sleep isn’t the easiest, but it’s definitely the most important thing I can do to help me be the best me that I can.
