Whether you’re a full-time momma or a career mom, being sleep-deprived seems a normal thing. With all the parenting tasks and work deadlines, some get used to having at least 4 hours of sleep. This shouldn’t be the case as better sleep means a healthier you.
Apply these small changes in your lifestyle. Be amazed with the wonders a good sleep does to your body especially in helping you achieve quality hours of slumber.
LIMIT YOUR COFFEE INTAKE
Whenever we feel the need to stay late and be awake for some household chores or paper works, our instant resort is to drink a cup of hot coffee. While this proves effective, it eats up the hours allotted supposedly for rest and sleep.
DRINK TART CHERRY JUICE
The best replacement to coffee is tart cherry juice. This nonalcoholic drink – which is low in sugar – has been proven to fight insomnia hence help you achieve a good night’s sleep.
EAT FOODS HIGH IN MAGNESIUM
Studies reveal that low amounts of magnesium contribute to sleep problems. As such, it is encouraged to increase our magnesium intake by eating more chicken, fish, green leafy vegetables and almonds.
NO GADGETS AT NIGHT
A lot of us can’t get enough of our tech devices that we still cling to our screens even if it’s time to sleep. How about turning off our smartphones and tablets during night time to give way to proper and undisturbed sleep?
USE THE RIGHT PILLOWS
One of the ways to achieve a better sleep is to have a good pillow. That said, using the right pillows will support your head and neck. More so, body pillows are suggested to align your spine to allow you to get a healthier and convenient sleep.
