Get it In! (Get Some Sleep) Pt. 2
Six Sleepy Steps
Sleep more easily and wake up feeling refreshed by applying these principles: 1) Schedule Our bodies and minds thrive on routine. Going to bed at different times alters our circadian rhythm; this disrupts the release of the hormones that help you sleep. Having a consistent bedtime balances the hormones that help you get to sleep and get up in the morning. 2) Light Your body mistakes the blue light from smartphones, TVs, and laptops for daylight. The blue light makes your brain stay alert when it should be winding down. Keep devices out of the bedroom – save your boudoir for sleeping and sex (which is naturally relaxing and also activates the endocannabinoid system). Getting up to see the dawn and spending time in sunlight also keeps you aligned to the natural world. 3) Eat Early Digestion takes up a lot of the energy that your body would otherwise use for restorative processes during sleep. Eat lighter meals that are easier to digest in the evening and consider walking off dinner to help you wind down. Enjoy a soothing cup of Stress Relief Tea in the evening to reduce stress and relax your muscles into a peaceful sleep. 4) Movement Gentle exercise helps both the body and mind to relax. A lack of exercise leads to excess evening energy, which will keep you up at night. Exercise reduces the risk of insomnia and releases feel-good neurotransmitters that neutralize the brain’s stress hormones. 5) Environment Make your bedroom a relaxing place to be - dark, cool, and quiet. Your brain needs to be in darkness to produce hormones that make you sleep, so make sure your curtains block out the light. Ensure the temperature is cool enough for you to fall asleep - 60 to 67 of is optimal. Block intrusive noise from outside with a white noise generator, relaxing bedtime music, or earplugs. 6) Wind Down Gently Prep your body and mind for bedtime with a late-night ritual. Start to reduce (or filter) artificial light after dusk. Undertake relaxing activities that calm your nervous system for 45 minutes before going to bed. Reading, relaxing music, journaling or meditating are great ways to unwind.
Restoring Health Sleep is critical for health and a few simple adjustments can quickly help you achieve deep restorative sleep. Follow the six sleepy steps and you’ll be asleep in no time at all. Create an enjoyable bedtime routine that helps you drift off. Don’t lose sleep over insomnia, trust the healing power of herbal hemp to ease you into enjoyably sweet dreams. Let light, nature, and some self-nurture restore your healthy relationship with sleep.
