Do you struggle with sleep?
Do you wake up in the morning feeling groggy?
Like you have to crowbar yourself out of the bed?
If so, you’re not alone… so many people struggle with achieving a deep restful night’s sleep.
There are a few things that you could start implementing to help support getting a good night’s rest:
Avoid Eating 3 hours Before Bed: Indigestion, heartburn, or bloating can interfere with your ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. Also, avoid any caffeine intake after noon!
Practice a Consistent Evening Relaxation Ritual: Take a Bath, Cold Shower, Massage your Body, Sauna, Read, Meditate, whatever it is that you enjoy!
Unplug Electronic Devices or Any Blue Light Emitting Appliances like Televisions, Smartphones, and Computers: Blue light can interfere with sleep cycles. If you need a night light, choose one with a red bulb since red light doesn’t seem to interfere with the body’s ability to fall into a deep state of sleep.
Go to Sleep at the Same Time Before Bed: Your body adjusts to patterns, when you follow a specific pattern for falling asleep and waking up you will begin to feel sleepy when your bedtime comes around.
Stop Working at Least a Few Hours Before Bed: The more you use your mind before bed the harder it is going to be to shut it off. Use your before bed time as an opportunity to “just be” and unwind.
Load up on the Essential Oils: Essential oils like Lavender, Cedarwood, Wild Orange, and Velviter all help with falling asleep and staying asleep throughout the night. You can put them directly on your body (some people might need to use a carrier oil of some sort) or put them in a diffuser.
A few of these things have been absolute game changers for me and I hope they do the same for you!
