6 Tips for a Better Night's Sleep

Arms crossed in front of face

March 19th is World Sleep Day, a perfect excuse to prioritize some long, healing sleep to help protect your body. Sleep is vital to your nerve system and can directly impact your Heart Rate Variability.

If you recently had your HRV tested in the office, and are seeking to improve your NeuroPulse, then sleep can be one of the most beneficial treatments to prioritize, as well as scheduling a few adjustment sessions. Adjustments help narrow your pulse, which improves your HRV.

So how else can you improve your sleep? Let’s take a look!

1. Reduce blue light exposure

Blue light from phones or computers activates the brain. As a result, you can gain better sleep each night by minimizing your screen use in the evenings. If you need to use your devices in the evening, consider using blue-light-blocking glasses.

2. Be consistent

Going to sleep and waking up at the same time each day can help set your internal sleep clock, resulting in better, deeper sleep.

3. Skip those evening meals

You shouldn’t eat for about 2 hours before going to bed. If you go to sleep while actively digesting food, you won’t get a peaceful night’s sleep, since your body is still active and processing.

4. Keep it cool

Colder rooms tend to bring deeper sleep. Naturally, some people prefer slightly warmer temperatures, while others prefer the cold. Nevertheless, if your room is too warm, it could impact your sleep quality.

5. Supplement

If you lack magnesium, it could impact your sleep. Try taking a magnesium supplement or finding foods rich in magnesium and integrating them into your diet.

6. Get adjusted

Chiropractic care can help foster sound sleep, because getting adjusted reduces tension, relieves pain, and promotes relaxation.

Other sleep-enhancing options include meditating just before bed, using a proper supportive pillow, drinking calming chamomile tea about an hour before bed, ensuring that you have an empty bladder before you go to sleep, and reducing your alcohol and caffeine intake.
