Wednesday’s Wellness Tip

Posted 09/12/2012 | By HealthCorps

Are upsetting thoughts at night interfering with your sleep?

It might help to add more ‘physical stillness” to your day. Take a walk without checking your cell phone or electronics…..grab your brown bag lunch and sit outside under a shady tree…grab a 15 minute cup of tea and write in a journal…….go out in the late afternoon and garden a bit.

If you engage in calming activities during your waking hours, you may be more likely to relax, fall asleep and have a more peaceful sleep experience.  You can also try meditation or soaking in a warm bath before going to sleep.  Most sleep experts recommend a period of winding down in the hours before bedtime.
