Sleep for Well-Being

Sleep is a crucial factor of well-being.  

As adults, we need eight hours of sleep per evening.  

Technology in the bedroom is detrimental to our well-being.

Tips for improving sleep patterns:

  • Enforce a digital sunset (no technology after sunset)
  • Meditate daily
  • Read a novel in bed before going to sleep
  • Buy a journal and write down three things you are grateful for and three goals for the following day before going to sleep
  • Limit coffee after lunch (caffeine can stay in our system for up to 9 hours)
  • Exercise daily
  • Develop strong bookend rituals to your day (morning/evening)
  • Make your bedroom as comfortable and as conducive to sleep as possible (make it a sanctuary)
  • Get 1 hour of fresh air daily
  • Buy an analog alarm clock (do not use your phone!)
