Are You Tired of Being Tired?
If I had $1 for every time that I've said "I'm tired", I would be a multi-millionaire! That's not including how many other people who complain of being tired or fatigued. There have actually been times that I have physically cried from pure exhaustion. That's when I said "Enough is enough!" and reclaimed my life!
I began a process of a very simple 3-step nutritional system that works by filling in your nutritional gaps, which we all have. Obvisouly you & I are very different, as are our nutritional gaps. So, it's fair to say that we would each have a different experience from these products, however MOST people experience improved sleep patterns as a result.
Below are 10 tips to help you get a restful night's sleep but first let's talk about the importance of sleep & the role that it plays for your shell. A.K.A. your body.
Why is Sleep so Important?
Aside from reducing the amount of daily CBS (Crazy Bitch Syndrome) that we have, sleep plays a vital role in the well-being of the only body that you'll ever have. Getting not only an adequate amount of sleep, but getting quality sleep is critical for the functuality of your amazing body!
- Sleep restores necessary brain chemicals & provides rest to your physical body
- Heals & repairs your heart & blood vessels
- Keeps your hormones balanced
- Controls your appetite
- Strengthens your immune system
Where as a lack of sleep can actually increase your risk for heart disease, heart attacks, diabetes & obesity. So, you get it?
Sleep is important
My Tips for a Restful Night's Sleep:
- Stick to a sleep schedule. Yes, even on the weekends. When you program your internal clock, the repetition will create a habit of going to sleep at the same time & waking at the same time, day after day. This will help your body naturally know when it's "bedtime".
- Have a relaxing bedtime routine. Inform your body that it's time to wind down. Sit with a book, work on your to-do list for tomorrow or simply dim your lights. A routine that says "It's that time of the night".
- Avoid naps. Trust me when I tell you...I LOVE my naps! It wasn't until I started my 3 step nutritional system that I didn't need naps anymore, let alone want them...but avoid napping, especially late in the day.
- Exercise daily. I didn't say run a marathon. Just go for a walk or a light bike ride. Get your body moving & tired out a little.
- Evaluate your room. According to the National Sleep Institute, an ideal room temperature should be between 60-67 degrees farenheight. Take a look at your room setup. Is it functional, cozy or a cramped, overwhelming mess? Your room should be clutter free, clean & relaxing.
- Invest in a comfortable mattress & pillows. If you don't "know your number" as the commercials say, you can always visit a furniture store where their sleep professionals will assist you in finding the right fit for your sleep patterns.
- Wind down. Perhaps having candles lit or an essential oil diffuser going while you brush your teeth, wash up, etc. will help "set the mood" and help you decompress. Creating a ritual of calm, tranquility and peace will help your mind & your body. I enjoy playing a Zen Garden radio channel.
- If you can't sleep yet, go into another room. If you're just not falling asleep yet, do not sit in your room starring at the ceiling. Go into another room and change your environment until you're ready to snuggle in again.
- Try a sleep aide. I'm not talking about some prescription medication that gives you temporary amnesia. I provide people with a natural sleep aide that contains natural ingredients like Melatonin & L-Tryptophan. If you'd like information on it, just email me & I'll send you a PDF with the information.
- Talk to your doctor. Maybe there are medical reasons or issues that require you to be treated by a medical professional.
