The Monthly Challenge:
What activities can hamper a good night’s sleep? Stress, being overweight, alcohol consumption, and lack of physical activity. Did I just describe what you are experiencing during the holidays? If so, this challenge is for you. Try to set this bedtime routine (for week days and the weekend) to get a better night’s sleep and tackle the holidays head on.
- Set a bedtime for week days and the weekend and try to stick to it.
- 1 hour before bedtime, dim the lights to get your brain into sleep mode.
- 2 – 3 hours before bedtime, finish dinner.
- 4 – 6 hours before bedtime, no more caffeinated drinks BUT stay hydrated by drinking water.
Let’s see how it works with a bedtime at 10:00pm
