Moon in sky

Deep sleep is vital for detoxing, regenerating, and healing our tissues, especially in the brain. Here are the top things you can do to improve your deep sleep.

  • Strive to maintain stable wake times day to day.
  • Be sure to get a few minutes of morning light exposure each day without sunglasses.
  • Avoid alcohol, especially in the 3 hours before sleep.
  • Eat a lighter dinner and stop eating 3 hours before bedtime.
  • Avoid bright lights after sundown, especially LED lights and the backlighting from computers and tablets.
  • Take a warm bath or shower up to an hour before bed.
  • Move as much as possible during the day.
