Sleep is one of the most important things a body needs. Sleeping poorly can affect your mood and general health. This is one of the easiest things to change to improve your health and reduce pain. These changes can be anything from your sleeping position, to your nighttime snacks.
An article at MayoClinic.com says that there are 6 simple changes to your nighttime schedule that can positively impact your sleep. They recommend sticking to a set bedtime every time that doesn’t vary by more than an hour. Consistency is key to reinforcing your sleep cycle, making it easier to go to sleep.
It’s also suggested that monitoring how much you eat in the few hours before bed, stress levels, and your sleep environment are all beneficial to a better night’s rest. You can read more in depth about small changes to help you sleep better by clicking here.
