Sleep is a crucial part of our health and well-being. The quality and amount of sleep that we get during the night impacts how we function throughout the day. How we plan, manage our tasks, and have energy to embrace the day ahead can all be tied to how much sleep we get at night.
As sleep proves to be essential in our lives, it’s lack or the disturbance of it could have detrimental effects on the function of both our body and mind. Lack of sleep can result in a shift in mood, delayed attention, and certain health issues. Avoiding these deleterious effects by improving our sleep quality can thus create incremental benefits to our overall health.
Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Do you sometimes wake up feeling tired and not fully rested? Some of the reasons behind difficulty sleeping can be related to stress, anxiety, lack of movement, and screen time before bed. Even though there may be other underlying causes, there are some strategies that you can integrate in your life to better your sleep.
