Dr. Shefferman’s Tips for meditation and mindfulness
Mindfulness is the practice of bringing your full attention into the present moment, very intentionally and without judgment.
There are many ways to practice mindfulness, including meditation where you intentionally tune inwards and focus on your breathing, thoughts and what you’re feeling in your body.
Mindfulness can be used to manage stress and anxiety, as well as acute and chronic pain.
Calming the mind allows us to see life from a point of clarity. We observe ourselves going through life and can respond to things with intention rather than react from fear.
Practicing meditation can help us be happier and reduce negativity, as it increases serotonin levels and acts as a natural antidepressant.

Dr. Katherine Green's Sleep Tips
Try to put down your phone about 30 minutes before you plan to go to bed, it gives your mind time to wind down and electronics exposure before bed will make it harder for you to fall asleep.
Your sleeping environment should be cool and dark—it’s the best environment to get quality, restful sleep.
Starting the day with a cup of coffee in the morning is fine, but avoid caffeine after 1 or 2 p.m., as it may impact your ability to fall asleep at night.
People who get daily exercise report lower rates of insomnia and overall better quality of sleep, so make sure you are getting some exercise every day.
All of us have temporary stressors or situations in our lives (job stress, illness, having an infant or young child) that are going to have an impact on the amount of sleep we’re able to get. The key to establishing healthy strategies to help us work through these times is to make sure these bouts of temporary lack of sleep don’t turn into long-term behavioral habits.
