You've Probably Stressed About This At Least Once This Week
You stress about catching enough sleep, but that stress actually prevents you from getting the quality sleep you need. The worst part, that cycle can snowball out of control. When your body loses out on valuable deep sleep and REM sleep, your happy hormones don't get replenished. And that's when your stress hormones take over.
The good news? You can break the sleep stress cycle.
Try to add 20 minutes of sleep to your daily routine. This could be going to bed sooner or taking an afternoon nap.
Devote time each day to mindfulness meditation or whatever helps you relax. It might be a good idea to do this right before bed, so your body and mind are calm.
