Did you know that 35-percent of Americans say their sleep quality is “poor” or “only fair”? Lifestyle expert Lance Smith says the amount of sleep we get can say a lot about our stress levels.
Stressed people typically sleep less than 7 hours, while non-stressed people get the recommended 7 to 9 hours.
Besides picking up the habit of reading and putting down electronic devices, the best way to cross over into a non-stressed sleep-zone include investing in your well-being.
The key is to start in your bedroom. In addition to investing in a new mattress, set aside time for relaxing, start a meditation practice, and take a short walk during the day to reduce your stress levels.
According to Smith, “If you’re exercising and eating right, sleeping well can work wonders on being the best version of yourself.“
