In the wake of Sandy , we need to focus on taking the best possible care of ourselves..This includes getting proper sleep each night. Here are three tips for better sleep from Dr. Greenberg, Wellness Advsior and Chiropracter at Flatiron Health Associates in midtown New York:
Turn off electronics: Too many electronic diversions mean that even when we hit the sack, we stay awake, getting progressively more tired and setting the stage for a restless night.
Take a Nap: Why? Because when you're overly tired, you're less likely to experience sound sleep. Grabbing a nap whenever you can (or the non-sleep equivalent, anything that allows you to close your eyes and relax body and mind) prepares you for a good night's sleep.
Don’t Eat Late: Particularly anything that's heavy, greasy, spicy, sugary or contains caffeine. Give your body at least two hours to digest your last meal of the day so when it's time for bed, the focus can be on falling asleep.
