Good sleep is a popular topic. Here’s a few reminders I practice:
- Avoid alcohol, caffeine and heavy meals in the evening. Remember to finish eating at least 2-3 hours before bed (and don’t overeat). Our bodies make heat when digesting. Allow yourself to recharge by honoring the natural cycles – don’t add a load for your body to process before bed.
- Get sunlight – go outside! Open your curtains/blinds.
- Get your daily exercise (even if it’s just a dance to Tina Turner).
- Calm yourself a half an hour before sleep – take a bath, read a book, meditate, stretch, breathe, listen to soothing music, dim the lights, get a massage.
