5 natural remedies for better sleep
Sleep is imperative to helping your body function most efficiently. But sometimes, falling asleep can be difficult. Here are a few natural remedies from Dr. Kelly Carden with Sleep Medicine of Middle Tennessee, an affiliate of Saint Thomas Physician Services, to help you get back on a solid sleeping pattern:
- Keep a regular sleep schedule. Start getting in the habit of going to bed and waking up at the same time – even on weekends.
- Increase your light exposure during the day.
- Maintain a cool temperature in your bedroom.
- Avoid eating a large meal close to bedtime as your stomach working to digest food may keep you up longer.
- Exercise regularly.
