sleep babystep #15

Do worries keep you up at night?

Prioritize them!

Do whatever you have to do to solve

and eliminate them.

Work hard during the day

so you can sleep well at night

with your mind at ease.

And so ends our sleep babysteps series!

I hope this has been super helpful.

What steps have changed your life the most?

sleep babystep #14

For the first time in my life,

I recently started snoring on a regular basis.

It was keeping my husband up.

He actually took video of me

and sent it to me in the morning to prove it!

(I didn’t believe him.)

I didn’t know what to do,

but accidentally found a quick fix!

Humidify!

I use a humidifier/vaporizer occasionally to prevent dry, sore throats,

but I’ve been informed it cures snoring as well.

Now, there may still be another reason,

but this simple solution is worth a try!

Bonus if you use relaxing oils or eucalyptus.

Pine needle is my favorite.

sleep babystep #13

How do books affect your sleep?

A long, boring one will put you to sleep.

An exciting novel will keep you up all night.

A difficult, educational book will wear you out.

But what kind is best before bed?

May I suggest a biography?

They’re usually easy to read

at a leisurely pace.

Learning from a great person’s life

and absorbing it over night

just might change you.

sleep babystep #12

Have you ever gone to bed

mentally exhausted but unable to sleep

because your body seems restless?

Yeah, me too.

It stinks.

Most of us are too sedentary to sleep well.

It’s telling you that you didn’t move enough

or burn enough physical energy.

Physical work or exercise is the best cure.

So get out there and do something!

Dance, hike, workout, yard work,

fast home cleaning…

Whatever you can do easily.
