Sleep is extremely important to our physical and mental health, it allows our body to relax and repair.
If we don’t get enough sleep, we might be at risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and a long list of other problems.
What do I do? Avoid eating right before you go to sleep, and try not to have heavy meals at night time. Establish a sleeping routine: know when you are waking up and when you are going to bed and try to stick to that. Participate in activities that regulate your breathing and make you calm, like meditation and yoga. Do exercise, however, don’t exercise right before going to sleep.
