A Good Night’s Sleep

We all know how busy the days can get and how important it is to take care of our bodies. Sleep is so important, especially to a developing child. The busy days can get in the way of positive sleep patterns and routines. Here are some tips to help you and your family develop some positive sleep habits.

  • Develop a routine that works for your family and stick to it. A consistent routine helps teach habits to children, reinforces expectations and prevents nighttime hassles!
  • Put away electronics at least an hour before bedtime. This includes phones, TV, computers or tablets.
  • Be sure to create a comfortable environment. Adjust the thermostat so the house isn’t too hot or too cold.
  • Schedule time to unwind. It’s important to talk time to talk with your children about the day in order to bond and form positive relationships.
  • Avoid caffeine in drinks and food. If you need a snack, make it a healthy choice that won’t affect your sleep.
  • Watch for signs of sleepiness. Each child demonstrates different signs of being tired. As soon as you see the signs in your child – start the bedtime routine early.

Sleep does so many wonderful things for the body; it promotes growth, helps the heart, affects weight and fights germs. It reduces risk of injury, increases attention span and boosts learning abilities. It isn’t too late to start getting in a nighttime routine. Take some time each night to work a little more towards your end goal – getting a good night’s sleep!
