Are You Getting Enough Sleep?
Posted on 21 February 2016
On scale from one to goodnight, how tired are you right now? A recent study by the CDC has shown that more than one-third of adults are not getting enough sleep. Personally, my sleep problems consist of not snoozing for at least 9 hours per night...don't judge. The average adult should get AT LEAST 7 hours of sleep per night in order to stay healthy.
Sleep deprivation can lead to some serious sh*t including but not limited to:
Here are three ways to help prevent sleep problems:
1. SET A SLEEP SCHEDULE
Try going to sleep and waking up at the same time each day. This can help put and end to sleep deprivation by creating an internal sleep-wake clock. If you find yourself waking up naturally each morning without an alarm, that is a sign that you are on the right track. If you need your alarm to wake you up, you may need to set an earlier bedtime.
2. EXERCISE REGULARLY
We all know how important and healthy exercising is. But did you know it can help you sleep better? Studies have shown that exercise, specifically walking, and running can help people suffering from insomnia and sleep disorders.

3. SLEEP IN COMPLETE DARKNESS
It may seem so obvious to sleep in complete darkness but not many of us do. Even the slightest light can hinder your sleep. I live in NYC, the city that never sleeps. It really doesn't. If it's not the glare of a streetlamp through my curtains, it's some massive construction spotlight hindering my sleep. I cannot sleep (or live) without my sleep mask. I sleep with it every single night. Get it here on sale.
