Getting a good night’s sleep is super important for our health and happiness. Did you know that sleep helps our bodies and brains grow, heal, and feel good?  Here are some tips to make sure you get the best sleep possible.

First, try to have a regular sleep schedule.  Going to bed and waking up at the same time every day helps your body get into a good sleep routine.

Next, make your sleep space comfortable. A cozy bed, soft blankets, and a dark, quiet room can help you relax and fall asleep faster.  Turn off screens like phones and tablets before bedtime because the bright lights can make it hard for your brain to wind down.

Also, pay attention to what you eat and drink in the afternoons and evening.  Avoid snacks with caffeine before bed, like chocolate or soda. Instead, try a warm glass of milk or herbal tea, which can help you relax.

Remember, a good night’s sleep isn’t just about feeling rested.  It also helps your brain work better, so you can be ready to tackle a brand-new day.  Your Vivent Health care team is always here to help!  Reach out of you need more ideas on how to get better sleep and feel good.
