Having to spring forward into Daylight Savings Time affects more than how many hours we see the sun. Many people have their sleeping habits disrupted in the weeks following the change and this can be bad for your health, click here for more on that..
Here's some things to help you get to sleep, with 8 hours being the optimum:
- Your last meal of the day should be mostly protein and vegetables which kick starts the making of melatonin, the hormone that helps you to sleep
- Exercise during the day which is good for overall health
- deep breathing about 20 minutes before going to bed will help you relax
- don't watch TV or read before bed which stimulates the brain
- LIGHTS OUT!! darkness is another way to relax
Have a good night's sleep!
