Overcoming Sleep Disturbances at Any Age

Overcoming Sleep Disturbances at Any Age Do you toss and turn some nights, only to wake up feeling exhausted and not ready to tackle the day ahead? You’re in good company!

3 Easy Ways to Stay Healthy

1: Embrace Good Sleep Habits: Are you tired during the day, yet toss and turn at night? You may be sabotaging your sleep with bad sleep habits, like eating before bed, not getting enough natural light or not having an established bedtime routine. By developing good sleep habits, you can promote both healthy sleep and increase daytime alertness.

2: Try a New Physical Activity: Are you tired of running on the treadmill or doing that same old tired workout that you’ve done for years? Trying a new physical activity can increase your motivation and improve your level of fitness. Many gyms and community recreation departments offer a variety of options like boxing, tap dancing, fencing and martial arts. Don’t be afraid to try something new!

3: Use Portion Control during the Holidays: A typical Thanksgiving dinner can serve up more than 3,000 calories! While the holidays are certainly a time to celebrate, they can also lead to over-eating and weight gain. By loading up on low-fat options like green beans and white-meat turkey and sticking to smaller portions of high-fat foods like stuffing, mashed potatoes and pie, you can cut out a significant amount of fat while still being able to enjoy all of the traditional favorites.
