We all know that sleep is an important part of our self-care – it impacts our physical and emotional well-being. Lack of quality sleep results in bad moods and poorer brain functions that help with regulating negative emotions. This can lead to stress over losing sleep which can then affect how you eat, which then adds to the stress making sleep worse – and a downward spiral escalates.
Getting good sleep is not only necessary for emotional health, but also to recover from physical activity. Quality sleep every night is needed for your wellness. Exercise during the day, exposure to natural light, a pleasant cool sleep environment, and a regular bedtime routine contribute to good sleep. If you have trouble sleeping, there are numerous podcasts (such as the one below), articles and apps (check out Sleep Cycle) you can find to help.
