  • Enhances your athletic abilities

You need sleep for many reasons, and some say that ample sleep is the best medicine. So, if your not feeling your best, look at ways of improving your sleep habits, or restructuring your daily routine to make sleep a greater priority for your physical and mental well-being.

Wind-down like you mean it!

  • Plan to have 8 hours of sleep a night—go to bed early to accommodate this.
  • Begin your winding down routine at least 1 hour before bed to encourage the sleep hormone, melatonin, for shut-eye. Most importantly, avoid bright lights, loud music, and caffeine.
  • Relaxing activities before bed such as meditation, drinking chamomile tea, having a warm bath, or having a nice conversation are beneficial at night time.
  • Make your bedroom a warm and inviting place to get cozy.
