Your sleeping habits directly affect your wellness.
When it comes to your immune system, sleep is one of the drivers of your immune cells (1, 2). With sleep, your body’s melatonin levels rise. With your melatonin, your growth peptides are released. And these put your immune cells to work.
Good sleep leads to empowered immune cells.
4 ways to improve your snooze
Same time, every day
Don’t give in to the temptation to stay up or sleep in super late. The more consistent you are, the better.
Reduce blue light
Set a screen time cut-off. Research shows exposure to blue light suppresses the production of melatonin more than any other type of light.
Me time at night time
Wind down with a hot bath or a good book. Calming your body and mind helps prepare your body.
Sounds about right
Turn on a nighttime meditation or some white noise via an app on your phone. Your mind will be less likely to wander.
Remember, good sleep leads to empowered immune cells. Wishing you peaceful dreams. And healthful days.
