Exercise and Sleep patterns + Giveaway #SleepMatters

Disclosure: I have received information, product and materials from McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., the makers of Tylenol® PM. The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post.

I’ll admit it, I’m a sleepyhead. I’ll snooze three or four times before getting up, and I’d rather stay in bed on the weekend than get up early to clean, run errands, or attend an event. I do make an effort to go to the gym during the work week, and with my busy schedule that means a 6am workout. While I’m not fan of getting up that early, I have noticed that I sleep more deeply on the days I’ve worked out than the days I haven’t.

Did you know that getting regular exercise helps deepen sleep? While I work out before the sun comes up, you can grab a quick workout at lunch, go on a brisk walk, or even take the stairs. Regular daytime exercise can help you fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply. Even if I have a long day, I have noticed that I sleep better those days that I’ve gone to the gym. What works for me may not work for you, so be sure to talk to your doctor before beginning or modifying your exercise routine.

Nutrition is an equally important factor when it comes to getting good sleep. It’s best to finish eating at least two to three hours before your regular bedtime. If you’re hungry, a light snack high in carbohydrates like bread or cereal can actually help you fall asleep.

Here are few tips for a better night sleep:

1. Physical Activity Can Promote Better Sleep (exercise, but not within a few hours of bedtime)
2. Pets disturb a good nights sleep, (get him his own bed)
3. Your coffee routine could be keeping you up at night, (limit yourself to one serving)
4. Clock watching keeps the brain stimulated and anxious, (keep alarm clock away from bed)
5. We replace our cars more often than our mattress, (It’s time to replace yours)
6. Backlit electronics keep you awake and delay your sleep, (Only use the bedroom for sleep)

Sometimes, despite your best efforts, you’ll still suffer from sleeplessness. In fact, more than 30% of the U.S. adult population suffers from sleeplessness. What triggers sleeplessness varies from person to person, however sleep is extremely important. Tylenol® PM can help, it is the #1 doctor recommended brand for pain with sleeplessness.
