MINDFULNESS & SLEEP

Updated: Mar 10, 2021

It used to take me along time to get to sleep. Once I got into bed my mind would start racing with all these business ideas and how to go about achieving them, what I was going to eat tomorrow, let alone what my plans were for the next day or possibly the weekend.


We have so much going on in our day to day lives that sometimes it's hard to literally 'cram it all in'. Then I started taking note of what it was that helped me get to sleep, to stop and literally breathe. These are a few things that I have learnt along the way and some of them given to me from friends, family, naturopaths, doctors, people that I have met along the way.

GOOD PJS!!!

Pick the right PJS!!!! If your not comfortable you will toss and turn all night! Fabric is super important too, you don't want to be too hot or too cold and more so you want the fabric to feel amazing on your skin.


ESSENTIAL OILS

Lavender is amazing for our minds. Our brains find it soothing which in turn slows brain wave activity allowing you to relax.


SUPPLEMENTS

Take a good supplement like Magnesium. Magnesium may improve your sleep. It plays an important role in your nervous system, helping to activate mechanisms that quiet and calm you. It may also help relieve anxiety and depression, which can interfere with sleep


RELAXATION APPS

Find one that plays soothing sounds like the ocean, waterfalls even rain drops. They can transform your environment and help declutter your mind which will allow you to fall asleep.


DRINK TART CHERRY JUICE/SLEEPY TIME TEA

Cherries are naturally rich in melatonin which is a hormone that helps regulate sleep. It is also thought to help reduce arthritis and improves your brains health. Sleep Time Teas that contain chamomile help reduce inflammation, anxiety and treat insomnia.


Remember these are things that helped me and they may possibly help you. I'm no doctor or health profession so please seek medical advice if this is a chronic issue for you.
