You have probably heard the saying, “If you want something done, give it to a busy person." That statement probably pertains to most entrepreneurs. We go, go, go… but what happens when we run out of steam? We crash, that’s what.

Here are 4 tips to help improve your sleep:

1| I take a wonderful magnesium supplement called Natural Calm made by Natural Vitality. I just heat some water and mix 1-2 tsp and sip about 30 minutes or so before bedtime. It relaxes me and helps me turn my mind off so I can fall asleep. Be careful- don’t fill your cup to the brim because when you add the supplement, it fizzes!!! Magnesium is an essential mineral that most of us are lacking but if you are taking any medication, please check with your healthcare provider to be sure your medications do not interact with magnesium.

2| Put some lavender oil in a warm/hot bath and soak away the stresses of the day. Lavender is a natural way to relax

3| Play some quiet relaxing music. Classical, harp, instrumental. It doesn’t matter, as long as it relaxes you. I do this every night and I am usually asleep by the 3rd track.

4| Make sure your room/sleeping area is dark. If light is coming in through your windows from street lights, hang darker, light blocking curtains. If you need to, wear eye covers. Your body loves the dark when it rests. 

There are many more natural ways to relax and fall asleep. Pick one and try it, see if it is right for you. Adequate sleep is the number one way to refuel your body so you can hit the ground running and keep changing the world!!!!
