Ok, so let’s face it we’ve all been distracted by our electronic devices and yes guys I mean our phones! We often spend hours on our phones at night when that time is to allow ourselves to recharge and rejuvenate. We create this sleeping disturbance but allow me to help you manage your anxiety.
TIP #1 Alleviate the stress patterns in your life. This can most definitely interfere with falling asleep and staying asleep throughout the night. You seem to be more anxious and worried about life’s problems and your brain is running a mile a minute. Allow your mind to relax. Play some soothe jazz on your phone to put you in a non-disruptive sleep. Don’t allow anxiety to impact how you function physically, mentally and emotionally.
TIP #2 Meditate. I cannot stress this enough that meditating is a huge factor it helps me stay more relaxed. Find a quiet place, setup your preferred space comfortably and just do it! Burn some sage for an earthy aroma which is also a benefit of memory support and brain health. Meditating helped me break negative thought patterns and reduced lifelong mood disorders which falls down the lines of getting a good night’s rest.
TIP #3 Try to reduce irregular or extensive daytime naps. I’m so guilty for this in my past. Their were days I slept for hours at a time throughout the day where it resulted in me having these terrible migraines. Has anyone else had this issue? And honestly this may not help all but it could also help some. It just depends on the individual.
TIP #4 Drink a sleepy time tea. I used to dread drinking tea until I understood the benefits of it and how it assists in so many ways. I’m all about going the natural route. Tea has a bunch of antioxidants that support our health. Do you prefer Hot or cold tea? Either way ..enjoy it!
Now I am not saying to sleep 10 hrs at night haha. Actually the healthiest person (depending on age) gets an average of 5-6 hours a night per what Dr. John Bergman states in his Youtube video on deep sleep series. I am saying to allow your body to get uninterrupted sleep by applying these methods in your everyday life.
Also download some of these Anxiety apps i’ve used and still do from time to time. @Buddhify, @Omvana and @Headspace. Let me know in the comments if these worked for you!
Also, leave a couple tips in the comments that help you get a good nights sleep! I’ll love to hear your methods!
