Sufficient sleep is as essential for optimum health and performance as diet, exercise and an interference-free nervous system.
Are you getting enough? Most of us don’t.
Calming an over-stimulated nervous system with regular chiropractic has helped many patients enjoy better sleep. Other things you might consider include:
Sufficient exercise – If you tend to sit for most of the day, get moving. Even an after-dinner stroll around the neighborhood can have beneficial effects at bedtime.
Sleep in a darkened room – Remove or subdue the nightlights, illuminated clock dials, and digital devices that can create light pollution. These lights can confuse our brains and interfere with our sleep cycle.
Reduce snoring – Snoring can indicate the possibility of apnea, in which we repeatedly wake up gasping for air. This can create an unhelpful “fight or flight” response affecting the depth of our sleep, blood pressure and other health metrics.
