All that time in the sun has sucked the moisture from your body. As you head back to work, try and drink as much water as possible. It will help you stay awake, fall asleep when you want and help your body preform at its peak potential.
9. Bring Back Routine
Holidays are the perfect time to abandon routine and let chance and circumstance be your guide. Now that it’s business time, routine is key. It will help you maintain a balanced sleep schedule, where your body naturally prepares for bed at the end of the work day.
8. Disable the Snooze
If you have an old-school alarm clock like us, use tape to eliminate your desire for seven more minutes of sleep. If you use your phone, use the settings menu to disable the snooze option.
7. Eat Earlier
A late barbecue or meal out in the summer is acceptable, but your body doesn’t need the extra workload of digesting right before bed. Try to eat at least four hours before crawling on to your Vancouver mattress.
6. Appropriate Snacking
If you do need a snack before bed, go with milk or nuts. Avoid pizza and anything salty.
Put the phone away at least an hour before bed. You can scroll through the latest ‘Tinderites’ over breakfast.
4. School Prep
If your kids can’t sleep, you won’t be getting any rest. Lower bedtimes to match the school year. Increase reading before bed and strategically hide the iPad.
3. Lower the Light
The sun is setting earlier and earlier, but for these first few weeks of September, close the blinds completely to block out any unnecessary light.
2. Substitute Local Craft Beer for Organic Tea
