In honor of Day Light Savings Time, and adjusting our clocks to spring forward, I wanted to take some time today to talk about healthy sleep. A healing night’s sleep means that you need to get approximately eight hours, which is easier said than done for many. Menopause, anxiety, allergies, sleep apnea, and a plethora of other conditions might prevent you from getting the sleep you need for your body to heal.
#1 – Get rid of electronics in your bedroom. No phones, TVs, tablets or computer screens. And replace your bedside clock with a Now & Zen alarm clock [https://now-zen.com/]
#2 – Invest in a great air purifier, such as the Intellipure, which I’m obsessed with http://bit.ly/2G7Yg2p
btw, my pajamas (not the robe) are from Coyuchi. And the robe was a gift from my Mum in the UK:)
#3 – Try a melatonin supplement. I like the Melatonin Sleep by Natrol [https://goo.gl/rcm6JJ] – I take 5 or 10 mg about 20 minutes before going to bed, and never wake up groggy. In my experience, Melatonin helps to soothe the “falling asleep” process!
#4 – Get great sheets. For me, lovely, clean, fresh sheets make the “falling asleep” process so much more luxurious. Check out the sets by Bamboo Sheet Shop [https://goo.gl/Y6mzhs] – I love the bed in the bag option!
#5 – Replace your eReader with a real book, particularly ones about meditation to help you get into the restful sleep phase!
#6 – Make a DIY Linen Spray (here’s the recipe: https://goo.gl/ZmdGZ9)
#7 – Try a lavender comfort bag [https://goo.gl/oY9WmA, or DIY it] that you can either freeze or put in the microwave.
#8 – Try the H. Gillerman Muscle Remedy – It’s a favorite of mine! https://goo.gl/Sydrqt
