How to Revolutionize Your Sleep

Revitalizing, repairing, restoring, and rejuvenating sleep is yours for the taking. If you’re having trouble getting a full night’s rest, here are some tips.

  • Avoid overeating, especially near bedtime. Heavy meals before bed can disrupt sleep.
  • Avoid stimulants like caffeine and nicotine.
  • Stay away from screens in the hours before bed. Leave your phone or tablet outside the bedroom.
  • Don’t take sleeping pills. They cause many unwanted side effects, ranging from unpleasant to life-threatening. Consider homeopathic formulas or calming herbal remedies instead.
