Sleep can be an evasive thing for some, whether it be parents getting used to childcare, or even someone working the graveyard shift. Many folks also use caffeine and other supplements to fuel their day, sometimes taking caffeine late into the afternoon, which can increase anxiety and affect your sleep.
Below are a few ways to take your sleep back on a nightly basis.
1.) Exercise, Exercise, Exercise
Being physically active is a great way to burn that extra energy that might be keeping you up at night. After a day of “getting after it” you’ll also have healthy endorphins flowing in the brain, not to mention the fact that you’ve pushed yourself to physical exertion.
2.) Eat Well
Eating well means lots of veggies, trying to cut or limit processed carbs and sugars, as well as eliminating foods and beverages from your diet that aren’t doing anything for you nutritionally, like, say, soda and candy.
Meditation and engaging in mindfulness exercises will help reduce your anxiety and help you achieve inner peace, not to mention help you gain more restful sleep.
4.) Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to help with neuro functionality and circulation and may help with anxiety and insomnia. Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to learn more about how chiropractic care can help you.
