Daylight savings ends this weekend, and while it’s awesome to get an extra hour of sleep Sunday morning, it can also take a bit of time for our bodies to get adjusted to the change – especially when you’re trying to get to sleep Sunday night!
Here are 5 tips to help you rest easy when the clocks go back.
Unplug from your electronics at least one hour before bed
Our sleep is governed by light-dark cycles, which can be altered when we are staring at the blue light from electronics. Unplug from your devices and lower the lights in your living space to help naturally kick start your sleep hormones.
Take a warm Epsom salt bath
Epsom salts contain magnesium which naturally calms and relaxes the body helping to contribute to a good night’s sleep.
Try sleep+ time release
A unique non-addicting sleep aid that combines the power of passion flower to help calm the mind and get you to sleep, with time released melatonin to help ensure you stay asleep the whole night leaving you feeling rested in the morning.
Make your bedroom dark & cool
Having a cool, dark room sets the stage for a quality night sleep, creating a comfortable sleeping environment that promotes a deep restorative sleep that is crucial for health.
Limit caffeine that day
Your body sleep-wake cycle is already going to be slightly altered, and adding further stimulants during the day may further exacerbate that problem. Skip the coffee today and enjoy the extra hour you have relaxing with loved one’s or by taking some quiet time for yourself.
