Tips for Better Sleep

Peaceful, restful sleep can be more evasive to some as opposed to others. A high school teenager might get more sleep than, say, a new parent or someone suffering from insomnia. Even little aches and pains that we live with every day might be contributing to a less restful night of sleep.

The good news is there’s a lot you can do to set yourself up for a better night of sleep… on a nightly basis!

Exercise to Exhaustion

Stay committed to your fitness routine, whether it’s going on that run 3-5 times a week or making yourself go to Yoga and Muay Thai lessons, make sure that you’re spending the requisite amount of energy working your body to exhaustion. You’ll be surprised how much better you sleep!

Cut Caffeine

Going from 7 to 2 cups of coffee each day will help you achieve better sleep. Try to also cut off consuming caffeinated beverages past 3pm or 4pm to ensure the effects have worn off by the time you hit your bed.

Stretch it Out

Taking a yoga class and/or stretching each day and night will help your body feel more relaxed and reduce tension in your body. You’ll feel more comfortable when it’s time to get those Zs.

Chiropractic adjustments are also a great tool to use to help you achieve better sleep. Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation.
