Do you have trouble falling asleep? Try sleeping with socks on!
Sleeping with socks regulates your body temperature, which signals to your body that it’s time for bed – helping you fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly.
Sleep better with blue light-blocking glasses!
A University of Houston study found that wearing these glasses before bed boosts melatonin levels by 58% – because it blocks the sleep-disrupting blue light from your phone or computer screen.
Sleep longer with Vitamin C!
Eating 1 cup of produce rich in Vitamin C a day calms your adrenal glands, which stops them from releasing the stress hormone cortisol early in the AM – letting you sleep 35 min longer and feel 60% more awake!
The time of day that you workout can impact your sleep.
ASU researchers found that exercising at certain times of the day can affect your circadian rhythm, and therefore allow you to stay up later or go to bed earlier. The research revealed that working out at 7 AM or between 1 – 4 PM helps you get to sleep earlier, while exercising between 7 – 10 PM makes you stay up later – by shifting melatonin levels.
