Are You Sleeping Healthy?

Ways to get a good night's sleep:

  • Sleep with an eye mask.  A dark, comfortable environment promotes sounder sleep.
  • Regular exercise helps relieve stress making it easier to fall asleep.
  • White noise, such as a fan, can help block out noises.
  • Stick to a pattern.  It takes between 3-7 days for the body to reset and adjust to a new pattern.

Things that interrupt your sleep:

  • Consuming caffeine after mid afternoon can cause restless sleep.
  • Nicotine is a stimulant and may prevent sleep.
  • Alcohol may make you fall asleep faster but it can disrupt your sleep patterns and compromise the overall quality of sleep.
