Better Sleep

 

A good night’s sleep is one of the cornerstones of vibrant health. 

Your body needs uninterrupted time to repair and heal. Quality

sleep enhances mood, attention span, focus decision making,

creativity, social skills, energy levels, memory and overall health.

 

Sleep deprivation contributes to mood changes, anger, anxiety,

stress, difficulty with impulse control, mental health issues,

drinking, smoking, substance abuse, poor judgement, decreased

immunity and weight gain.

At Renewed Mobility Chiropractic, we give practical advice on how to optimize sleep.

 

Here are a few simple steps toward a better night's sleep :

  • Sleep in a dark room (use room darkening curtains)

  • Keep the room cool

  • Decrease light exposure before bed (dim room lights, use a night light in the bathroom, etc.)

  • Turn off computers, cell phones and TV at least 1 hour before bed

  • Do not use night lights with children

  • Avoid caffeine after noon

  • Go to bed at the same time and get up at the same time even on weekends

  • Sleep on a comfortable mattress

  • Use a cervical pillow, body or leg pillow to support stress points

  • Limit naps to 20 minutes for adults

  • Establish bedtime routines that promote relaxation such as reading, taking a warm bath, deep breathing exercises, meditation, and stretching.

  • Exercise at least three to four hours before bed (30 min. a day five days a week)

  • If needed, use natural supplements to restore a natural circadian rhythm
