Clean-up your sleep routine
Clean-up your sleep routine.
We all know what personal hygiene is but we rarely talk about sleep hygiene. It is time to clean-up your sleep routine.
According to Healthline, did you know that lack of sleep can lead to:
Risk of Diabetes
High blood pressure
Trouble with memory & concentration
Risk of Heart Disease
and a weakened immune system
How do you do sleep?
What does your sleep hygiene look like? Routine before bed what do you do?
Moreover, what do you need to do better?
Serotonin and Melatonin help our bodies fall asleep, stay asleep & wake up refreshed.
But did you know that they react to light? Our body naturally wants to sleep when it is dark & wake in the light. Although this was fine before light bulbs, TV’s and Tablets now our world is inundated with light sources. If you fall asleep with your phone next to you, the TV on or a computer on your lap, keep reading.
What helps increase serotonin release?
Reduction of light. So that may not be reasonable. Do you plan for bed? Not many of us do. Have you ever thought, “I am having trouble falling asleep?” then reached for the PM product or melatonin gummy? That will take 30+ minutes to get through your digestive system and start maybe making you feel groggy. Guess what? None of those products support increases in serotonin so you are not working with your body’s natural chemistry.
Tell me more about serotonin
Your body make an amino acid called 5HTP. Part of 5HTP is Tryptophan. Ever heard of the “turkey affect” at Thanksgiving? Yea, that is Tryptophan. 5HTP and other herbs like Valerian Root or Passion Flower help reduce anxiety by supporting your body’s natural release of serotonin.
But we can’t forget melatonin. Melatonin is the fall asleep, restful sleep, wake up refreshed part of the hormone pair in our body.
Sleep Hygiene and Sleep Routine
Are you ready to clean-up your sleep routine?
First off cut the lights. I know it’s hard, but your body needs it.
Second, cut caffeine at least 2 hours before bedtime and really anytime after 4pm.
Third, make bedtime a routine, so your body knows what to do
Lastly, if you are having a hard time shutting down your mind & falling asleep use natural products that work with your body’s chemistry.
Sublingual Delivery is better
We talked about how pills & gummies take 30+ minutes to get through your digestive system, but what is the alternative.
One alternative is a sublingual (under the tongue) delivery method. Under the tongue gets into the bloodstream in seconds to minutes. You start feeling the effects faster and are able to get more precious minutes of sleep. DREAMit Sleep Spray combines 5HTP, Valerian Root, Passion Flower & Melatonin to work with your body naturally. You get to sleep fast, stay asleep, and wake up refreshed.
Don’t let lack of sleep lead to health problems, weight gain, and daytime sleepiness.
