At Barton Chiropractic Clinic we believe in the power of a good night's sleep. Restful sleep will help you feel more energized throughout your day and will also help your body regenerate and cleanse itself of toxins you're exposed to without even knowing it.
When we're drowsy, we're more prone to getting an injury (back injuries being a big one), whether that occurs at home or in the workplace, or anywhere else in between.
Below we go over a few ways to capture more restful sleep every night.
Running, swimming, or doing some other type of cardio 4-5 times per week will help you achieve more restful sleep. Our bodies are wired genetically to hunt and gather, and many of us get anxiety because we're inactive at work and at home most of the week. We carry that unused energy straight to bed with us. You'll be surprised how well you sleep after you go "out there" and "get after it" a little.
Have a Caffeine Cut-Off Time
Stop letting yourself have caffeine past 4pm if you plan on going to sleep around 10pm. Try to make sure you're not getting anything more than 50 grams of caffeine on a daily basis.
Visit Your Chiropractor
Visiting your chiropractor is a relaxing experience that will help your body's functionality -- and you'll feel great afterwards. Chiropractic is a drug-free pain management solution that can help you get better sleep at night.
