    I really believe sleep is very important. I used to deprive myself of sleep but I ended up getting fever.

  • Wow I didn’t realize sleep did all of this. Especially reducing inflammation. I don’t sleep well and that may be why my chronic pain is so high.

  • Yes, sleep is a gift sometimes. As a mom of two young kids, I don’t always get enough sleep. These are great tips to improve sleep.

    Sleep is the elixir of life. Sleep recharges the body, mind, and soul. In the fast pace of life today many ignore this necessity and pay the price.

  • It really is crazy how much better I feel when I’m on a consistent sleep schedule. You definitely can’t neglect sleep when you’re looking for ways to improve your health.

  • Being an entrepreneur, means “good sleep” is a hot commodity. I crave it so much. I plan to disconnect for a few days, so I can remember what it feels like again! 😉

    I have found that exercising makes such a difference in getting a great night’s sleep. And having just ten minutes of unplugged time before bed with a good book or just chatting with my hubby totally relaxes me before bed.

  • Good sleep is something we all definitely need, I have to admit I don’t get enough myself but my health doesn’t help that.

  • Pam

    Good sleep is so important. I am a really light sleeper and it can make me feel pretty rough.

  • Rachel Akers

    Nothing worse Han not being able to sleep. We need a new mattress, I just can’t decide what to get.

  • Candy Kage

    So very frustrating when sleep isn’t coming. Cranky and tired so finding a sleep routine that works is perfect.

  • Sleep is so hard to come by for me. I have to take Benadryl every night to feel the sleepy. Because even though my body is tired, my brain needs the Benadryl to lull it out of all the things that are racing through it.

  • Jeanette

    I would love to get myself a precious gift of sleep but I have insomnia. Last night I was up until 1:30 am and I woke up at 5:00. I get the more clear minded I know I am so I try hard to get sleep.

  • Sleep DEFINITELY boosts my creativity!! When I wake up in the morning, that’s when I get more of my creative writing done – and ALL of my blog posts get written at the 5 or 6am hour! Ha! It’s weird how that works!

  • I am pretty tired today as I read this, so I think I may start practicing some of these tips. I do use my phone before I go to sleep, as I like watching IG and Snapchat videos, but I make sure the blue light filter is on.

  • Oh yes, I try to always get enough sleep but with a snoring husband and kids, that’s easier said than done at times. But I always try my best!

    • I think in this day and age we can only try as there so many more distractions outside the family too

  • Alli Smith

    I needed to read this today because I did not sleep well last night. I had a late meeting and didn’t get to bed until past midnight and I’m feeling it today. These are all wonderful tips!

    • As an insomniac I can definitely relate, glad you found the article useful.
