SLEEP IS AWESOME
Good sleep is a game changer. Eva says that when you have the ability to wake up after having a proper night’s sleep, it means that you can wake up as the best version of yourself. When you are starting your day after having a broken night’s sleep, you are waking up feeling like you have been hit by a truck! This doesn’t fly on a good day and especially not in the thick of a global pandemic. It is physically and emotionally impossible to get through the day, day in and day out, on horrible quality sleep without something having to give in the process. That something will likely be your mental and emotional health.
We all owe it to ourselves to prioritize our sleep and our little one’s sleep so that we can all be the best versions of ourselves. This will be crucial in helping us navigate this new normal. We all have a lot on our plates right now!! There is so much outside stress. The extra stress from sleep deprivation makes things almost impossible.
Eva reminds us that good sleep is a game changer for us AND our little ones! All humans, regardless of age, are designed to need good quality sleep in order to thrive. Everybody wins!
SUCCESS STEPS FOR A GOOD SLEEP
1. A SLEEP ENVIRONMENT optimized for good quality sleep:
A DARK ROOM: Don’t worry about babies getting their days and nights mixed up. Get some heavy duty black out blinds in their room so that there isn’t sunlight streaming into their room during the daytime impacting their naps.
WHITE NOISE: White noise drowns out background noise and creates a calm and soothing sleep environment. For infants, it is easy for them to be woken up from background noise. For toddlers and preschoolers, oftentimes their imaginations start to run wild. They get scared when they hear noises such as creaky floors or gusts of wind.
