Recharge, Reset, Repeat | Tips for Rest and Sleep

In our fast-paced world, finding true rest can feel impossible, but with a few small changes, you can set yourself up to feel recharged more often. Here are some tips to help you reset, recharge and get more restful sleep.

Tune into Nature’s Rhythm

The natural cycle of daylight and darkness helps regulate our body’s internal clock, or circadian rhythm. Try to wake up with the sunrise and wind down as the sun sets. This natural pattern can improve your sleep quality and increase your daytime energy.

Engage in Gentle Outdoor Activities

Engage in light activities like walking, yoga, or stretching in a natural setting. The combination of physical activity and fresh air is a powerful sleep aid. Exercise helps reduce anxiety and stress, leading to more restful nights. Need some inspiration? Try out this body scan meditation led by Paige Willis, owner of Undone Wellness in Chicago.

Practice Mindfulness

Listen to the rustling leaves, feel the breeze, and observe the changing colors of the sky. Mindfulness practices, especially in nature, can lead to deeper relaxation and better sleep by calming the mind and reducing stress levels.

Disconnect to Reconnect

Take a break from screens and electronic devices. The blue light emitted by screens can disrupt your sleep cycle. Instead, spend your evening hours around a campfire, under the stars, or with a good book. This digital detox can work wonders for your sleep quality.

Plan a Getaway

Consider planning an escape to nature at your nearest Getaway Outpost. The change of environment, away from the chaos of city life, can significantly improve your sleep quality.

Incorporating nature into our lives isn’t just a luxury; it’s a necessity for our physical and mental well-being. By following these tips, you’ll find that rest becomes more attainable, leaving you rejuvenated and ready to face the world with renewed energy. Remember, nature doesn’t rush, yet everything is accomplished.
