It’s another Ask Denise – and today it’s all about sleep, so let’s look at some answers to the question “How can I fall asleep?” The timing couldn’t be better, as Daylight Savings ended a few days ago for much of the U.S., likely affecting some of our sleep patterns.
Sleep is so important to our overall health: Not getting enough sleep can mean you aren’t properly producing important infection fighting substances that help you recover from illness and injury. This can lead to cold and flu, and inhibit your body’s natural recovery process. Proper sleep also helps to produce the natural human growth hormone that maintains and repairs muscles – important for everyone, but especially important when you are being active. There are more ways that not getting enough sleep can disrupt your body, and that is why I am giving you some tips on How Can I Fall Asleep?!!

A lot of you have trouble falling asleep. Here’s some of my favorite tips. First off, make sure you turn off all your phones, your iPads and everything. One hour before you fall asleep. It really helps, that blue light is not good for our eyes. And notice in my bedroom, I have no blue light. I have no alarm clock to look at that. I try to keep my eyes relaxed before I go to sleep. If you need an eye mask, that helps a lot of people too. Also, reading a little bit, I read about 15 minutes before I fall asleep, and did you know that plants are really good oxygen in your bedroom, like a tree? Whatever you have. So do the best you can. Exercise and stretching at the end of the night does help like a little yoga, a little stretching, deep breathing, a little meditation, a little prayer whenever it’s going to take to have him have a nice good night’s sleep.
