With 2016 about to be left behind, it is a good time to assess how your year went. If it didn’t quite live up to your expectations, you should make it a point to make improvements in 2017. Those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other sleep issues are already behind the eight ball. In fact, many people’s lack of sleep is solely responsible for their disappointing year. But, as recently discussed in Psychology Today, there are ways to improve your life in the new year.
- Boundaries – Some people find disappointment when not setting enough boundaries in their lives. Whether they are letting people dictate their schedule with last minute plans, allowing disrespectful conversation, or being unfairly criticized, things can get out of control quickly. Make sure to establish strong boundaries.
- Sleep – As previously mentioned, not getting enough sleep can do a lot of harm. We need 8 to 10 hours of quality sleep at night, in order to wake up feeling refreshed. Try settling into a consistent wake/sleep time schedule, purchase light-blocking curtains, or even get a sleep study performed.
- Exercise – Getting regular exercise can help with a lot of things, and can even assist patients with anxiety, depression, ADHD and more. It is recommended that we get an hour of exercise per day, yet well over half of Americans do not reach this mark.
