5 Tips for Better Sleep

5 tips for better sleep

Sleep, just like your diet, is important for an overall healthy lifestyle. Getting in enough zZzZs can help promote brain function, metabolism, and hormone regulation. Whereas getting little to no sleep can have long term negative impacts on your health. That’s why it is important to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night. 

Stress and work can sometimes get the best of us, that’s why it is important to be mindful of your night routine to get the best sleep you can get. Here are our six favorite tips for getting better sleep: 

1. Reduce exposure to blue light late at night: Your circadian rhythm is affected by both bright and dark light. Staring at bright lights in the evening can trick your circadian rhythm into thinking it is still daytime. Putting down electronic devices at least 2 hours before going to bed can help reduce blue light exposure at night to help you relax and get deep sleep.



  • 2. Decrease caffeine consumption after lunch: While caffeine is known to help improve focus and energy, consumption late in the day has negative effects on sleep quality. Caffeine stays in your system for roughly 6-8 hours and might make it hard to get good sleep, especially if you’re caffeine sensitive. 

    3.Wind down after a long day with one of our Relax-All productsRelax-All Magnesium® is  a fizzy blend of magnesium and citric acid that when combined, forms magnesium citrate, a compound known to aid in muscle relaxation.** It is known to help muscles relax by blocking specific calcium channels that cause the muscles to contract. Sip on a cup of Relax-All Magnesium® after dinner to help wind down and relax before sleep.  Relax-ALL® Sleep  contains proven neurotransmitters, amino acids, and ashwagandha to help balance the mind and body, therefore aiding in a restful night’s sleep.**The addition of melatonin and 5-HTP help promote restful sleep without that groggy feeling.


  • 4.Create a relaxing sleep environment:When it comes to sleeping, why wouldn’t you want to be comfortable? Upgrade your bedding, add blackout curtains, or try sleeping in one of Athleta’s new sleep sets!
  • 5.Exercise regularly: Not only does exercise promote a healthy lifestyle, it is one of the best science-backed remedies to improve sleep quality. Try getting in a workout earlier in the day to prevent the stimulatory effects of epinephrine and adrenaline from keeping you up at night.
