Remember how we discussed sleepy MORNINGS? Well, let’s discuss sleepy DAYS! Daytime sleepiness refers to an excess amount of sleepiness and general lack of energy in the daytime that is usually caused by difficulty sleeping at night. This is something that every person can experience from time to time, but if it happens too frequently some lifestyle changes may help.
Developing healthy sleep habits is a great place to start.
Here’s one idea: make sleep a priority by providing a good sleep environment. A dark cool, quiet room, with a good mattress is recommended. There should be no distractions such as TVs or other electronics.
Prepare for sleep with a relaxing routine,
be consistent with wake and sleep times, avoid stressful situations before sleep, avoid napping (an occasional 20-minute nap is considered scientifically okay as long as it does not become routine). Napping routinely can interrupt your natural sleep pattern or circadian cycle.
Considering your diet and exercise can be helpful as well.
Here are some helpful tips: keep your meals regular and not close to bedtime, avoid caffeinated drinks in the afternoon, avoid alcohol or sedatives to induce sleep, and exercise regularly, just not within 3-4 hours of bedtime.
If sleep is still hard to come by, don’t lay in bed frustrated:
get up for twenty to thirty minutes and try again. Using relaxing scents can also be beneficial and will be covered in more depth later in this class.

or in need of a pick-me-up, there are many Essential Oils that can be beneficial to you: Peppermint, Wild Orange, Lemon, Lime, the Joyful Blend, the Invigorating Blend, and the Cleansing Blend, applied topically or diffused, are refreshing, invigorating, rejuvenating, and uplifting.
