How important is sleep?
Many of you know that sleep is important but what do you do when sleep doesn’t come easily? As we age sleep begins to elude us and become a thing of the past. Hormone changes can contribute to restless sleep and other sleep challenges. Although there is no one answer that works in all cases, there are things that you can do to set yourself up for better rest. If you’re like most American, then pulling yourself away from a screen in the evening can be hard. Most of us feel the tug to check emails, social media or read up on the news before bedtime. However blue light and pixels on your super HD+ screen can cause your brain to fire up in the evening when it should be winding down. Blue light will cause your brain to slow down the production of melatonin, making it difficult to fall asleep. In the evening have your phones screen time turn off 30 minutes before you get ready for bed. Turn all other screens off and remind yourself that whatever is going on in the world will still be going on in the morning.
