Sleep challenges for women

According to Dr. Eric Olson of Mayo Clinic, the unique stages of life that women experience, like pregnancy, affect how much quality sleep women get. We know, just one more thing on your plate. But Dr. Olson recommends keeping a regular sleep schedule, limiting food and drinks before bedtime, and avoiding bright technology to help improve your sleep. So as tempted as you might to grab a midnight snack and check Instagram before bed, try eliminating those steps in your routine – you’ll thank us in the morning!
