3 Tips for Better Sleep

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.        

 

Dr. Elizabeth Greenberg has been practicing in Manhattan as a Wellness Advisor and Chiropracter since 1988.  Her office focuses on preventative as well as rehabilitative care and has short term pain relief programs.

  1. I agree an all these particularly taking a nap, do you have any tips for how to get good at taking naps, as I can never seem to quite my mind.

    Seems you need to quiet your mind.  Try to contact Rebecca Spath at Breathing Room Therapies.  Breath is the key to life and the key to quieting the mind.  Her contact info is in the directory in the back of Natural Awakenings Magazine.

  3. Be active during the day, Physical activity can decrease stress and help people feel more relaxed.Avoid alcohol and drugs.Drugs and alcohol disrupt sleep, increasing a person’s chance of waking up in the middle of the night.Say goodnight to electronics.
