Want a simple way to happier living?

 

GET BETTER SLEEP!

 

Bring on the eye rolls.

That’s fine.
I rolled my eyes too the first time my therapist and life coach said this.

Proper sleep is proven to help us

  • Feel better Emotionally and Physically.

  • Exercise better

  • Recover better

  • Think more clearly

  • and Remain Calm in the face of stress, helping us to reduce anxiety overall.

 

So why is America so terrible with our sleep patterns???

The problem is, we all want to be happier, but we don’t want to do the things that put us in a position to be happier.

Getting 7-8 hours of good sleep is universally recognized as one of the most if not THE MOST important factors to being healthy and happy.

But it’s not just about sleeping longer. It’s about getting better quality sleep

 

So, here’s simple ways to sleep better:

 

1. Don’t drink alcohol late and drink less overall

2. Don’t eat sugar late and eat less overall

3. Cut off caffeine after 2:00pm and less overall

4. Less smoking (all forms of smoking)

5. Take natural supplements like magnesium

 

I love beer, bourbon, coffee, late night snacks, and smoking hookah, but guess what,

I’ve set rules around my consumption of these because I HAVE GOT to sleep better so I can be happier.

Want to be the healthiest you and experience a happier life?

Make some small, simple choices that you live by regularly and it will happen over time!

And go to bed earlier!!
