Tips for Healthy Sleep
- Stick to a sleep schedule bedtime between 9-11pm (most important sleep is between 10-2am)
- Early natural light (stops melatonin secretion) try to get outside for at least 30 minutes daily
- Exercise 30 minutes daily, early better than later (nighttime exercise increases body temp).
- Avoid caffeine, nicotine, blue light late in day (blue light decreases melatonin production)
- Avoid alcoholic drinks 3 hours before bed (alcohol prevents REM sleep)
- Avoid large meals and beverages late at night (Stop eating 90 minutes before bed, high fat low carb at night if you do eat late)
- Don’t take naps after 3 p.m.
- Relax before bed, wind down, shower/bath, reading, or listening to music, meditations, stretching, dim lights, red lights or blue light blocking glasses
- Sleep environment, cool temp <68 degrees, good sleep position, dark room, gadget-free bedroom
- Don’t lie in bed awake, if restless >25 minutes get out of bed and come back when
