How To Have A Better Sleep
Sleep, we all know how important it is... Yet how many of us have truly figured out how to have a consistent, nourishing sleep schedule that allows us to wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the day? It's difficult to create when there are so many added stresses on us lately.
The uncertainties of the world definitely can weigh on us, and figuring out how to turn off the stress before bed is a challenge. Not to mention, all the added blue light we look at everyday from our phones and computers! Blue light fires up the centers in our brain, which in turn can make our brain feel wired and alert when we really want to be asleep.
Our first suggestion, would be having a solid night time routine. What does that mean? Well it could be something like this... Plan to go bed around the same time every night during the week. Stopping screen time on the phone, tv and computer about an hour before you want to sleep. Many people cringe when they hear that, because the reality is, we are so glued to our devices that it's hard to know what to do without them. Listening to a podcast, reading a book, having a bath, talking with a loved one, are all great options to help yourself wind down from the day. It takes effort, and won't always be easy, but so worth it. Sleep is the biggest healer, strengthens our immune system, our memory, and heals us.
For additional support, we have some really awesome recommendations for supplements that help you to slip into a nice relaxed state of being!!
