Other sleep skill tips?
Since our human bodies are designed to mostly be active during daylight hours and at rest during the evening, you should align with this! Switch over to lighter, more relaxing activities post sunset. Blue light blocking glasses and shifting your screen display to red/warm toned lights helps as well!
If you have a lot on your mind and you’re having trouble sleeping, try to write everything down with the mentality that you’ll handle it the next day in the morning. Your night time rest is purely for you.
“What I learned AFTER my sleep breakdown changed my life and the lives of countless people that I’ve had the honor of working with on their sleep. Now, I consistently wake up feeling rejuvenated with sustainable energy (and actual positive sleep stats to boot!), all of which leave me READY to take on my days.”- Mollie McGlocklin, sleep expert
