Mindfulness Minute: Days 11-15

We all need sleep to be our best selves. According to "180 Days of Self-Care for Busy Educators", one in three adults in the U.S. isn't getting seven to eight hours of sleep. This is a worldwide issue and can lead to things we don't enjoy...like forgetting things, gaining weight, forgetting things, and even increase our risks of accidents.

  • Monday: Get your bedroom to be quiet, cool, and dark.
  • Tuesday: Experiment with an evening snack to see if it helps.
  • Wednesday: Reduce the caffeine because it can cause sleep problems up to ten to twelve hours after you drink it.
  • Thursday: Avoid bright screens an hour or two before bed since "blue light" that comes from impacts our ability to fall asleep.
  • Friday: Optimize your sleep by keeping your internal clock on the same time; whatever time you wake up today, wake up tomorrow at the same time too.
