Sleep is a critical component of overall health and longevity.  As individuals age, the importance of quality sleep becomes even more pronounced, impacting both physical and mental health. Prioritizing sleep is an investment in long-term health and a key factor in promoting a higher quality of life as one ages.

Adequate sleep contributes to:

  • Emotional well-being, helping regulate emotions at difficult times.
  • Improved overall cognitive performance. A well-rested mind is more alert and focused.
  • Improved immunity – Lowers risk of chronic diseases.
  • Improved vitality and energy levels – Consistent good sleep is essential for maintaining an active and fulfilling lifestyle.

Naturopathic tips for getting a good night’s sleep:

  • Create a relaxing bedtime routine; reading books, gentle yoga exercises and mindful breathing can support a good night’s sleep. Establishing a routine signals the body that it’s time to wind down.
  • Limit screen time at least 1 hour before bed. The blue light emitted from screens can interfere with the production of the sleep hormone melatonin.
  • Consider drinking a herbal tea such as chamomile, passionflower or valerian. These can be soothing and promote relaxation before bedtime.
