“I’m too tired to work out and make healthy meals.” This is one thing we hear people say a lot, and often it is painted as an excuse or that those individuals are lazy. But we truly don’t think that’s the case, we all lead busy lives that can drain us and give us very little motivation to want to get up and go to the gym, let alone plan healthy meals. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, how can you dedicate time towards your health? We truly think that good sleep habits are the essence of a healthy lifestyle, which is why we created a list of ways that you can start waking up well rested and energized in the mornings.
Get off of Your Screen
We all do it, scroll mindlessly on our social media feeds before we go to bed, but the blue light of our screens overstimulates our brain and can seriously impact our sleep. We suggest turning off all screens (that includes TVs, laptops, phones, and tablets) about 30 minutes before bed time. Read a book instead or meditate to put your brain and mind in relaxation mode.
Take a Sleep Supplement
For some of us it’s hard to get our brain to relax after an eventful day so a sleep supplement can help. We suggest taking some magnesium or drinking a warm cup of chamomile tea to help you relax. We love drinking Natural Calm, a magnesium powder supplement. Just add it to a cup of warm water and drink it before bed time.
Keep your Sleep Schedule Consistent
We get it, life can get in the way of keeping a consistent schedule, but when it comes to sleep it’s something we highly recommend. Keeping a consistent sleep schedule will help you fall asleep faster and wake up easier in the mornings.
