The Big Sleep

It seems like nothing plays a bigger role in our lives than getting a good nights sleep. When you are getting up at 5 am for a shift, it can seem like a great time to throw your alarm clock across the room. However, studies show that getting a good night’s sleep improves your routine and it can even lead to making more money. 

Develop a few solid sleep habits and go to bed at the same time every night. No sleeping in too much on your days off (but it’s so tempting!) And for the night-shifters: use room-darkening shades and keep the thermostat low. For help falling asleep, don’t rely on red wine and Benadryl, or OTC sleeping aides. Go natural with melatonin or magnesium. There are even breathing exercises to help you fall asleep. What have you tried to get a good night’s sleep?
