Since I have graduated from college I have taken this time to coddle my mental, emotional, and physical health. These past five years have been rough with the overload of work and commitment to my academics, jobs, and organizations. It was rare if I was able to squeeze in eight hours of sleep and over time my body adjusted to four to five hours of sleep (which was terrible).
If this is you my friend, stop. The lack of sleep leads to so many health issues from high levels of stress to weight gain. It is crucial to get your eight or more hours of sleep. If you are anything like me you probably have a hard time falling asleep quickly or you may struggle with sleeping throughout the night. I have collected a few healthy habits for bedtime and hopefully you will find them helpful.
