Getting your Zzzz's?
Lack of sleep can have a serious effect on your immune system, making you more vulnerable to catching colds so your body is less likely to fight infection.
Winding down before bedtime and creating a relaxing bedtime routine is such a great way to help your body and mind be lulled to quality sleep. Try listening to soft music, doing some stretching or light yoga, sipping decaffeinated herbal tea or soaking in a warm bath. Avoid watching TV or using your computer just before bedtime and turn the lights down low an hour before you turn in for the night, as it will boost the release of melatonin in the brain.
Also try to go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even on weekends. This is crucial for your internal body clock to stay consistent and expectant of rest and waking times.
