We thought it would be nice to give a few tips on how to ensure you're getting sleep this holiday season.
First, is to travel smart. It's key to be well-rested before you leave, especially if you're flying across multiple time zones.
The second is to make getting sleep a priority. Decreased sleep leads to increased irritability and decreased patience. Getting adequate sleep will help keep your holidays happy and less stressful.
It's also important to keep your snoring in check, particularly when you're sharing a room with your family. There are some common fixes, such as nasal sprays, allergy medications, or custom mouthpieces to help curb snoring. That said, snoring can also be the sign of a more serious condition called obstructive sleep apnea, which is very common and very treatable.
Another helpful tip is to watch how much caffeine and alcohol you're consuming. It's best to try and avoid caffeine within 6-8 hours of bedtime. Alcohol can help us fall asleep, but after only an hour or so, it significantly disrupts our sleep, preventing us from achieving the deep sleep and REM sleep our bodies need.
If you have family coming to stay with you, be sure to have proper sleeping arrangements for them. Making a pallet on the ground in the living room is not healthy or fun. Aunt Wilma would be very irritable if she woke up with stiff shoulders and an achy back…and nobody wants to be around her when she is like that.
