WEBE Wellness: Steps To Take For More Restful Sleep

The first day after the weekend gives some of us a case of the Mondays – but you feel that way every day, there are some things that may be to blame that you can correct.

The most common reason we’re tired is simple fatigue – not getting enough sleep after a busy weekend. But if you’re constantly fatigued, let your doctor know in case they may find an underlying reason.

Also, if you’re too sedentary, it’ll make you tired – we need at least 2 1/2 hours of physical exercise per week.

If you’re anxious or depressed, it can be draining. And if you don’t get a consistent sleep schedule, that can affect you too.

Plus, make sure you drink enough water. Dehydration can make you tired, no matter what time of year.

Also, make sure your bedroom is conducive for sleep – a dark, cool room – and keep your phone away at night, along with alcohol and caffeine shortly before bed.

Hopefully, with some easy changes, you’ll start to find yourself more rested!
