 Image result for new yearsHappy New Year!! Let’s make a resolution to sleep more! That’s one that everyone will find beneficial. Let’s talk about how to get a better night’s sleep.

Do you know the correct number of hours of sleep that you should be getting every night? The correct answer is between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night, but do you know anyone who actually gets the proper amount? Now that it’s New Year’s Eve, and people are making resolutions for the new year, why not do something great for your health that feels nice, too? Resolve to get more sleep in 2017!

Getting enough sleep makes you feel better and have a better mood throughout the day, and your health can really suffer if you frequently don’t get enough sleep. Did you know that not getting enough sleep has worse consequences than just being grumpy –  poor sleep leads to cardiovascular dysfunction, a poor immune system, glucose and insulin abnormalities, weight gain due to fluctuating hormones that control appetite, and impaired cognitive function. Those are some serious health risks that can be easily avoided by turning off the computer a little earlier in the evening, not watching that extra episode of your show on TV, and not lying in bed for an extra hour looking at your smartphone.

It’s not just your physical body that can suffer when you don’t get enough sleep, your mind can suffer as well. Frequently getting less than 7 hours of sleep per night can lead to anxiety, depression, impaired reasoning skills, and mental sluggishness. If you already suffer from any of these problems, lack of sleep can make it worse. Don’t do that to yourself, go to bed a bit earlier every night!

If you are having trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep at night you might want to look into getting a different pillow, bedding, or even a new mattress. You can also try keeping a fan going in your bedroom all night. The fan serves two purposes – It’s easier to fall asleep when your room is a bit on the cooler side, and the fan also provides just the right amount of “white noise” to help you block out the noises outside of your bedroom.

Living Healthy: Getting a Good Night’s Sleep

Everyone knows that getting enough sleep is an important factor in staying healthy, but there are other factors than just getting 8 hours in. Let’s talk a little bit about Living Healthy, and how to get a good night’s sleep.

Everyone knows that you SHOULD get at least 7-8 hours of sleep per night, but with kids, working extra hours on the job, household chores, and errands sometimes it’s hard to get to bed at a reasonable hour. You should really make your best effort to get your ZZZs, because your health can really suffer if you can’t make the time.  Not practicing healthy sleep habits can lead to all kinds of health problems, poor sleep leads to cardiovascular dysfunction, a poor immune system , glucose and insulin abnormalities, weight gain due to fluctuating hormones that control appetite, and impaired cognitive function. Not only those physical problems, but lack of sleep can also lead to mental issues as well, including anxiety, depression, impaired reasoning skills, and mental sluggishness.

Well, what can you do to get not only the quantity but also the quality of sleep that you need? There are a few things that are fairly obvious such as cutting down on caffeine (especially after 3 PM), keeping your bedroom dark and comfortable, and clearing your mind of troubles and worries before you attempt to drift off.

However, there are some lesser known tips and tricks to get a better night’s sleep that I will share with you. For instance, did you know that using your tablet and smartphone right before you try to sleep can hinder the process? The light that is emitted by these types of devices wake up the senses and make it harder for your brain to get into “sleep mode.” For your best night’s sleep turn off your electronic devices about an hour before bedtime. Another great trick to getting a good night’s sleep is to keep a fan going in your bedroom all night. The fan serves two purposes – It’s easier to fall asleep when your room is a bit on the cooler side, and the fan also provides just the right amount of “white noise” to help you block out every little creak and crack that your house makes at night.
