5 Ways to Ruin Your Sleep

🚫 Stop doing these things if you want better sleep 🚫

Who doesn’t want better sleep? It’s the key to more energy, weight loss, mental clarity, and just feeling GOOD.

Check your habits first. Do you do any of these 5 things that could be secretly ruining your sleep?

❌ Alcohol. Even though alcohol initially calms the nervous system, it disrupts the normal phases of the sleep cycle as it wears off during the night.

❌ Sugar. Eating sweets and refined carbohydrates causes blood sugar fluctuations that disrupt sleep.

❌ Late-day caffeine. It can take up to 10 hours for caffeine to completely clear from your system, so pay attention to when you drink that last sip of coffee.

❌Sitting around. Movement and exercise are key to healthy hormones, a regulated internal clock, and quality sleep.

❌ Nighttime Screens. The blue light that emits from your phone, tablet, or TV interferes with your natural production of melatonin, the hormone needed for sleep.

Before you grab a pill (even something natural), take a look at these habits and see if you notice better sleep when you stop them.
