FullSizeRender_copy14

Happy Sleep Awareness Week Prime Riders!! It started on March 6th and ends this Sunday. Lets raise awareness towards the health benefits of sleep and the importance to the safety and productivity. Here at Prime Cycle we have 8 tips to help you have a peaceful and restless sleep at night...

1. Try to get in 7-9 hours of sleep so you can function properly the next day.

2.  Leave a couple of hours between eating and sleeping. According to Jillian Michaels, two hours would be the best to not have food before going to sleep.

3. The blue lights from our electronic devices can distract our sleep, so turn them off 30 minutes before going to bed.

4. Make your bedroom all about sleep! Comfortable mattress, pillows & bedding.

5. Start doing a "wind down ritual" every night. Incorporate breathing exercises and stretching to get mind ready for relaxation. One of our instructors, Ava Kyte, shared Meditation for a Calm Heart with us that you can do at your own home!

6. Calming essential oils, Lavender oil is great for relaxation and winding down. Put a couple drops on your pillow or on the scalp of your head and enjoy the soothing aroma.

7.  Have a cup of Bed Time tea before going to bed. Celestide Seasonings Sleepy time tea has all the essential herbs you need to relax and prepare for bed.
                             
8. Hungry and can not fall asleep? The potassium and magnesium in bananas help as muscle relaxants. Enjoy a banana 30 minutes prior to bed so you can feel more relaxed when going to sleep.
