We’re losing an hour soon for spring, even though Mother Nature seems to be set on frigid weather. Does that hour mean bad things for your health? Sleep deprivation can result in systemic dysfunction, including decreased mental and physical performance, increased anxiety, and all the symptoms associated with it.

 

We gathered a few resources to help you beat the clock.

 

  1. Avoid caffeine or products that boost energy levels, like nut products and vegetables high in B vitamins.

  2. Reduce exposure to electronics. There is plenty of research available showing the harmful effects of blue light from electronics.

  3. Wind down with yoga. Start your routine a little earlier and add gentle yoga stretches to help guide you to sleeping well. Try the locust pose, head of the knee pose, or bridge pose.

  4. Mindfulness techniques. We’re always fans of mindfulness. Find tips here: http://bit.ly/2zSpOsI
