Good sleep is one of the cornerstones of health. Six to eight hours per night seems to be the optimal amount of sleep for most adults, and too much or too little can have adverse effects on your health. Sleep deprivation is such a chronic condition these days that you might not even realize you suffer from it. Science has now established that a sleep deficit can have serious, far reaching effects on your health.

5 tips for better sleep

For example, interrupted or impaired sleep can:

  • Dramatically weaken your immune system
  • Accelerate tumor growth—tumors grow two to three times faster
  • Cause a pre-diabetic state, making you feel hungry even if you’ve already eaten, which can wreak havoc on your weight
  • Seriously impair your memory; even a single night of poor sleep—meaning sleeping only 4 to 6 hours—can impact your ability to think clearly the next day
  • Impair your performance on physical or mental tasks, and decrease your problem solving ability

  • Here are 5 quick Tips

    For getting much better, more restful sleep.

    1. Unplug

    All the electronic influences in our life can lead to a lack of good sleep. Make a commitment to unplugging at least an hour before your bedtime. That means no computer, phone, or television. Read a book, play a game of cards, do what you need to do to unwind from technology and your day in general at least one hour before you plan on going to sleep.

    2. Set A Bedtime

    While kids definitely do better with a non-negotiable bedtime, adults should heed the same advice. Your internal body clock is working and to keep on track, you should get to bed the same time every single night as often as possible. Kids should get to bed to ensure at least 10 hours of rest while adults should calculate bedtimes based on at least 8 hours. If you have to get up at 6 am, be ready to fall asleep by 10 pm every night.

    3.Watch Your Foods & Liquids

    What you eat and drink before bed does make a difference. Avoid coffee and soft drinks after dinner time. Sugary snacks and heavy foods should also be avoided. Not only will this help you fall into a faster, higher quality sleep, you can also start keeping off unwanted pounds.

    4. Be Active Every Day

    Many people that do not exercise or maintain some level of activity every day can find it difficult to fall asleep. Exerting energy throughout the day through activity and exercise can make it easier to fall asleep each night. Try to complete your exercise routine at least 2 hours before your bedtime so you have time to relax and get your body ready for sleep.

    5. Have your Health Checked.

    Studies have shown that Adrenal Stress and Hormone levels are a huge factor that may cause insomnia. Have a health care provider evaluate your situation. Be weary of habit forming sleeping drugs that may create more problems in the long term.
