Do you prioritize sleep? We’re pretty sure we know the answer to that question, considering the fact that only 10% of American adults prioritize sleep over other daily activities. The vast majority of us are not taking sleep as seriously as we need to be. The good news is that there are simple adjustments you can make to help optimize your sleep - even in terms of your drinking habits.
Dehydration isn’t just about feeling thirsty. It can actually disrupt your sleep. We’re talking less energy the next morning, along with decreased mental clarity and poorer performance than usual. Dehydration can also lead to cramps that cause fragmented sleep throughout the night. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids throughout the day.
Finish your last cup of coffee before 2pm.
Caffeine is a stimulant that can keep you alert for up to six hours. This means that a seemingly innocent afternoon pick-me-up can still impact you when your head hits the pillow. Remember caffeine is found not only in coffee, but in teas and sodas, too.
Don’t drink and doze.
Alcohol begins to act as a stimulant on the brain a few hours after consumption, which can prevent your body from achieving the deep, quality sleep it needs to recuperate for the next day. Steer clear of alcohol before you get into bed.
Unwind with a can of Som Sleep.
Som is designed to optimize your body’s natural sleep cycle, promote relaxation, and jumpstart your good night’s sleep. Drink one single-serve can thirty minutes before you’re ready to go to bed. It’s that simple.
Now that you know how easy it is to drink your way to a better night's sleep, be sure to stock your kitchen with options to keep you hydrated throughout the day and to help you relax at night
