Improve your summer sleep. 

Do you have trouble falling asleep in the summer?

With the increased amount of daylight in the summer, especially now that we are in the middle of the season, it can be difficult to get enough sleep at night. It can be especially difficult if you have children that want to play outside in the cool evenings. It is important for adults to get at least 8 hours of sleep at night to avoid waking up tired the next day with dark circles under your eyes. Children should get much more sleep, up to 12 hours at night, to avoid being cranky the next day.

If you find that you or your children are still having trouble sleeping after trying these tips, please call the office to set up an appointment to discuss some natural remedies customized to your needs.  


 
Tip 1. Move dinner schedule one hour earlier. Ideally by 5pm at the latest. You can even try to eat a little less during the summer and drink more. Two healthy full meals for an adult, ideally breakfast and lunch, with a light early dinner would be enough.

Tip 2. Drink more water, always in between meals. Stop drinking by 5pm so the water can have time to filter through the kidneys, this will help you not to have to get up during the night.

Tip 3. Close the shades and keep the bedroom cool during the day; reduce the number of blankets on your bed. Turn the fan and humidifier on a couple of hours before you got to sleep.

Tip 4. Wear cotton pajamas.

Tip 5. If you need extra help you can try a 4 oz. cup of warm chamomile tea or sleepy time tea.
