Tips to Sleep Better during the Holidays

Sleep is essential to our health and our well-being. We want to reiterate how important healthful sleep is to maintaining our wellness and vitality during the holiday season and throughout the year.

Here are a few tips to help you get enough sleep so you can recuperate –

It’s important, to try and stay on course as much as possible to avoid upsetting your body clock. Try as best you can to go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day. This will help regulate your sleep and restore your energy.

Take naps

Naps are essential as they rise from a natural physiological need triggered by our body clock. Studies show that daytime naps can be very beneficial as they reduce stress, improve memory function and concentration, and balance our nervous system.

Exercise

Exercise releases endorphins, naturally produced by the body. It also synchronizes the body clock, facilitates sleep and leads to deeper sleep.

Avoid Over-drinking

Alcohol is sleep’s false friend. Alcohol, especially in large quantities, will affect the different stages of sleep, causing you to wake up often during the night or to wake up in the very early hours and not being able to get back to sleep. 

We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!
