6. Chill Out
Dr. Smarr also shared, “Stress and anxiety impair sleep, and that includes anxiety about sleep. If it’s an off night (we all have them), then do watch Netflix (something light and funny, not scary). Distract yourself so you’re not an anxiety ball. When the adrenaline runs its course while you’re too distracted to care, then sleeping will suddenly be much easier. If this happens every night, see the above tips, but sometimes not sleeping is fine. Like eating the one slice of cake when you’re paleo. Moderation in all things, including moderation.”
