Happy New Year!
Now that 2016 is officially here, it’s time to think about your new year’s resolutions. For many, lifestyle changes such as weight loss are high on the list going into a new year. But “get more sleep” is often forgotten. Let’s all resolve to get better sleep in 2016. Here’s why.
Better sleep benefits your whole life. There’s a reason Arianna Huffington believes the secret to success is sleep. Lack of sleep is detrimental to your body and mind – even one night of no sleep causes lessened alertness. Sleep deprivation long-term can cause dangerous health issues like high blood pressure and heart failure. More sleep will make you more productive and happier, experts say. So cut the Netflix binge and watch the inside of your eyelids instead.
Not sure how to get a better sleep? Start with these six tips from our blog, including starting a sleep routine and turning off your devices.
This resolution pairs perfectly with a resolution to spend more time at the gym or get the raise at work. Exercise helps induce sleep, and sleep will help your productivity at work. By stopping your nightly scroll through social media right before sleep, you’ll catch up on your reading list, find your calm with nightly mediation, and get some “you” time with a warm bubble bath. And, lack of sleep is associated to weight gain. All your resolutions start with sleep!
