Quality Sleep – Leave the Sheep in the Pasture

Here are some things you can do in the DAY to improve sleep quality at NIGHT:

  • Spend more time outside and be more active during the day.
  • Reduce stress through exercise, therapy, tai chi, or other means.
  • Go to bed around the same time each night.
  • Avoid sleeping in when you have had enough sleep.

Foods that help you sleep:

  • Hummus is rich in tryptophan, folate & vitamin B6. The tryptophan produces melatonin & serotonin & the folate and B6 help regulate sleep patterns.
  • Walnuts, almonds & pistachios all provide a natural food source of melatonin.
  • Oatmeal is another food that provides a natural source of melatonin
  • Figs pack in potassium, magnesium, calcium & iron, which helps you fall asleep. 
  • Sweet potatoes contain potassium, magnesium & calcium which helps you relax and lower your blood pressure before bedtime.

Extra Tips:

  • Have tough conversations before dinner
  • Don’t watch a scary movie before bed
  • Skip salty snacks in the evening
