Let’s face it, we are just not our best if we don’t get a good night of sleep.
Sleep is essential to our bodies and brains healing and recharging.
If you have not been sleeping well lately I encourage you to do these five things:
1. Keep a journal and note how you are sleeping each night and what you did during the day (what you ate, your exercise, job or family events, etc.)
Patterns may present themselves and you can get to the root of why you are not sleeping well.
2. Clean up your diet and drink lot’s of water (just don’t drink too close to bedtime).
3. Take a walk daily (or a swim, bike ride, yoga class). Get moving! It is even extra great if you can spend time moving outside!
4. Get some fresh air.
5. Do something “just for fun” each day.
See if these five simple steps help you to sleep better.

Goodnight and sweet dreams!
