How well are you sleeping?
Every cell in our bodies require oxygen and without adequate levels this can impact our quality of sleep! I personally have found a few little tricks that have helped me sleep as recently it has been more of a struggle!
Trick #1 - Getting into a good routine of trying to decrease or turn off technology (I know it's hard) by about 8pm at night has been making a huge difference as the light from our phones, laptops or TV screens has a high concentration of blue light which affects the sleep inducing hormone melatonin.
Trick #2 - Taking magnesium before bed as this is a muscle relaxant + GABA which is a inhibitory neurotransmitter that actually clams the central nervous system (please consult health practitioners before use) but can be bought at health food shops.
Trick #3 - Adding nature in our bedrooms! Who would have thought! But plants produce oxygen while absorbing pollutants so having lots of fresh oxygen can make a huge difference to your quality of sleep 🌱
Trick #4 - Another one of my favourites is having a herbal tea before bed and a hot bath with Epsom salts helps me relax after a hectic day. Keeping away from sugary foods late at night! but will elaborate more in my future posts on this point!
Trick #5 - I also have just recently gotten into using a few different essential oils in cooking and thought I would try some lavender oil as it has an amazing calming effect on the body! My favourite is Doterra Oils and has been working amazingly! I hope these tips help you all get better nights sleep as a good nights rest is just as important as your diet. Xxx kirst
