How to Have a Better Night's Sleep!


You might see a bed ðŸ› .......
I see an important part of my health!!!!!
Do you love your bed? ðŸ™‹ðŸ¼‍♀️
Are you getting quality sleep? ðŸ¤·ðŸ¼‍♀️
Can you fall asleep quickly? ðŸ™‹ðŸ¼‍♀️
Do you stay asleep? ðŸ¤·ðŸ¼‍♀️
Did you know Sleep Deprivation has a dramatic impact on our hunger horomones????
It does!!!
When you don't get enough sleep, you end up with too little leptin in your body (the hormone that tells your brain it’s full) so your body beings to store the calories you eat as fat so you'll have enough energy the next time you need it. 
The decrease in leptin brought on by sleep deprivation can result in a constant feeling of hunger and a general slow-down of your metabolism.
People who don't sleep enough end up with too much ghrelin (tells your brain when you need to eat, when it should stop burning calories and when it should store energy as fat), so the body thinks it's hungry and it needs more calories, and it stops burning those calories because it thinks there's a shortage.
Lack of sleep also increases cortisol levels (one of the body’s stress hormones) which increases appetite and signals the body to shift metabolism to store fat.
None of this is good for us!!! ðŸ™…🏼‍♀️
Here are some tip to help you get a better sleep.
🛌 Buy removable black out stickers for electronics and small digital lights. You can find these on Amazon!!
🛌 Turn off the screens and wind down for several minutes before bedtime.
🛌 Set a bedtime alarm and put electronics into downtime mode overnight.
🛌 Avoid caffeine after 2 PM
🛌 Upgrade your sheets to something that’s more comfortable, breathable and helps you to stay cool.
🛌 Invest in a high-quality mattress! It will lasts you decades and add years to your life.
🛌 Keep the room super dark with black out curtains!! (That’s next on our to do list when we get back from vacation!!!))
I hope these tips help you have a good nights sleep as we adjust to daylights savings time this week!!
