We all know how important a good night’s sleep is, although sometimes with little ones who wake up or don’t like to sleep it can be near impossible to get good rest. Sleep is important for so many reasons, not only does it make us feel better, but getting enough rest helps us look better too. Not getting enough sleep can cause weight gain, depression, decreased short term memory and breakouts.
Here are a few tips to help you start to get some more sleep:
1) Give yourself a set “bedtime”
2) Do not use electronic devices in your bed. Silence or turn off 30 minutes before falling asleep.
3) Try doing 20 minutes of yoga before getting into bed. It will help calm and relax your body.
4) Just like you do for your children, stick to your bedtime routine! Wash face, brush teeth, have some downtime and lights out!!
