5 Tips for a Great Night’s Sleep

5 Tips for a Great Night’s Sleep

1). Go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day. (Yes, even on the weekends).
2). Exercise during the day. Even a slow walk during the day will help you sleep better.
3). Meditate for 5 to 10 minutes before bed. This will help clear your mind of all the stressful events from your day.
4). Turn off all electronics an hour before bedtime. A bright screen tricks your mind into thinking it should be awake!
5). Rub a few drops of Lavender Essential Oils onto the balls of your feet. (I personally use Young Living Essential Oils). This works for me every time!!

Sleep tight! 🙂

A 4 minute workout to do during commercial breaks!

Here’s a home workout for you to do while watching your favorite television show. Now imagine that I am using a couch instead of a chair. Also, imagine that I am doing four minutes (1 minute of each exercise) on the commercial breaks. Enjoy 🙂

1) Leg variation: lift one leg, lift the other, lift both legs, stand up with a jump or a calf raise. Repeat.

2) Mountain climbers: bring one knee in and switch.

3) Tricep dips: fingers face your body. Bend elbows to lower your body. Perform the regular version with both feet on the floor or try my variation.

4) Bridges/hip lifts: Both feet will be on your chair/couch. Lift hips off the ground and lower (not touching the ground). Lift one leg or move away from your chair to make it harder.
