The Importance of Sleep in Wellness: Simple Tips to Promote Sleep Quality

Sleep disorder affects 50 to 70 million adults in the US. Sleep deprivation is linked to various health issues, including memory loss, weight gain, and an impaired immune system. Sleep is essential for overall wellness, so make sure you get enough each night.

By following these simple tips, you can improve your sleep quality and start feeling your best.

So how much sleep do you need? The guideline is based on age categories.; 9 to 12 hours for school-age and 7 hours or more for adults per night.

For one, limit your screen time to 30 minutes leading up to bedtime. Electronic devices emit short-wavelength light that prevents one from falling asleep. This means no more scrolling through social media or watching TV in bed. Instead, consider something soothing like reading or taking a bath, or you might perform both at the same time :)

Speaking of baths, adding a few drops of lavender oil to your next soak can help promote sleep quality. Lavender is known for its calming properties and can help ease you into a restful state. Try chamomile instead if you don’t have any lavender oil on hand. Otherwise, try our {SERENE} Dead Sea Salt Bath Soak. It's our Dead Sea Salt Bath Soak, which is blended with lavender and chamomile essential oils. There are several advantages to using Dead Sea Salt as a bath salt. It has been used to treat various skin problems, including psoriasis.

Finally, it’s crucial to establish a bedtime routine. This means going to bed and waking up at the same time each day, even on weekends. Having a set sleep schedule will help your body know when it’s time to wind down and get some rest.

So there you have it, a few simple tips to help you get a good night’s sleep. Just remember to avoid caffeine in the hours leading up to bedtime, and you’ll be well on your way to getting the shut-eye you need. Sweet dreams!
