Coaching everyday people to build Healthy Habits and transform from being tirelessly preoccupied to being ENERGIZED by a life with PURPOSE!

Here are a few tips for a better nights sleep:
-Create an aesthetic environment in your bedroom that encourages sleep by using serene and restful colors. Eliminate clutter and distraction.
-Avoid caffeine or reduce it after noon.
-Avoid alcohol - it helps you get to sleep but makes your sleep interrupted and of poor quality.
-Get regular exposure to daylight for at least 20 minutes daily. The light from the sun enters your eyes and triggers your brain to release specific chemicals and hormones like melatonin that are vital to healthy sleep, mood, and aging.
-Eat no later than two hours before bed - eating a heavy meal prior to bed will lead to a bad night's sleep and will impede the body’s overnight detoxification process.
**Create a Power down hour before bed which can include:
-Writing down the things that are causing you anxiety and make plans for what you might have to do the next day to reduce your worry. It will free up your mind and energy to move into deep and restful sleep.
-Take a hot salt or aromatherapy bath. Raising your body temperature before bed helps to induce sleep. A hot bath also relaxes your muscles and reduces tension physically and psychically.
-Warm your middle with a hot water bottle - this raises your core temperature and helps trigger the proper chemistry for sleep.
-Listen to relaxing music to help you fall asleep.

Sleep is one of the most important health influencers. To get quality and the right quantity for you, I like to have clients implement "sleep hygiene". Find a routine that works for you. Some musts are turning off all screens 1-2 hours before bed, not engaging in an emotionally charging event (like talking to someone you don't care for), and dimming the lights or using amber colored glasses or light bulbs about 2 hours before bed. All of these habits will begin to turn down your Cortisol production and turn up your Melatonin production, making you sleepy. Some additional habits I like to use are taking a bath or shower with calming essential oils, reading a book, using a salt crystal lamp in your bedroom, writing down a "worry list" or "to do" list so you can calm your thoughts, or meditation. If you are dealing with toxicity or heavy metals, using a binder like charcoal, modified citrus pectin or zeolite before bed can boost detox (be sure to check with your doctor first and always take binders at least 2 hours away from meds, supplements and food). Every hour of sleep you get before midnight counts double for rest, repair and rejuvenation!

These are both great Ideas! also, have a bottle of water by your bedside so that even before you get out of bed, you drink the entire bottle. We are dehydrated and this will improve our health in many ways.
