  • Brain Fitness: Sleeping Well As You Age  

  • As we age, a good night’s sleep is especially important because it improves concentration and memory formation and retaining information. It also allows your body to repair any cell damage that occurred during the day. Lack of sleep can negatively impact brain health. Getting sleep is a necessary piece of your brain fitness routine. -so if you aren't getting enough- here are some tips to help you catch some ZZZs...

     

    • Keep a regular sleep schedule – Go to bed and wake up at the same times every day, even on weekends.
    • Be engaged – Social activities, family, and work can keep your activity level up and prepare your body for a good night’s sleep.
    • Experiment with napping  Although napping too close to bedtime can interfere with nighttime sleeping, short naps early in the day can improve overall restfulness.
    • Expose yourself to sunlight – Bright sunlight increases melatonin, which regulates your sleep-wake cycles. Try to get at least two hours of sunlight a day.  
    • Go to bed early - Adjust your bedtime earlier, to match when you feel like going to bed.
    • Develop bedtime rituals – A soothing ritual, like taking a bath or playing music will help you wind down.
