Stress-reduction strategies: Practice such as meditation and yoga can benefit thyroid function. To keep your thyroid healthy, get 7-8 hours of excellent sleep every night, including a calming bedtime ritual.

Pay attention to your body: Monitor your body's reactions, energy levels, mood, weight, and other thyroid-related symptoms, and consult your doctor if you have any concerns.
