Sleep Improvement

Sleep is an extremely important part of human health. Negative effects of sleep delays or interruptions include sluggishness, low attention span, decreased sociability, depressed mood, decreased deep sleep, decreased caloric burn during the day, increased hunger and decreased feeling of fullness, insulin resistance and decreased performance.  We use an evidence-based approach to preventing, treating and even reversing diseases by replacing unhealthy behaviors with positive ones. 

Set goals for Sleep Management

Setting goals around sleep health is a great way to increase your sleep quality. It’s often easier to achieve positive goals. An example of a positive sleep goal is, “I will begin a new bedtime routine of shutting off the television and instead, read a book for at least 30 minutes before bed, four nights this week.”

Sleeping needs goals too

'Consciously' manage your sleep habit

It’s important to set goals for yourself when it comes to your sleeping patterns. It’s often easier to achieve positive goals. An example of a positive sleep goal is, “I will begin a new bedtime routine of shutting off the television and instead, read a book for at least 30 minutes before bed, four nights this week.”

 

Setting these goals is easier said than done, we know. When you are wide awake at 3 a.m, a good night’s sleep may like an impossible goal. The fact is, you are the only one that can control your habits and you have more control over the quality of your sleep than you realize. Your daily routine influences and affects your sleeping patterns. In the same way, will your sleeping patterns influence your daily routine? Yes, it will, it is a circle that needs to be fixed.

 

Unhealthy habits and lifestyle choices will leave you tossing and turning at night and affect your mood, brain and heart health, immune system, creativity, vitality, and weight. To live a healthy and better life you can need better sleep at night. By fixing your sleeping patterns, you can boost your health, and improve how you think and feel during your daily life.

 

There are certain things you can do to improve your sleeping pattern. You can try to make sure you have a healthy diet, drink enough water, get enough exercise, take time to clear your mind before bed, and make sure you sleep at least 8 hours a night. The secret is in a healthy routine.
