Your best night sleep in 5 easy steps
Updated: Mar 30
It can be hard to get a good night's sleep, and sometimes even when we do fall asleep easily, staying asleep is the problem.
Lack of sleep is linked to all sorts of health problems, from weight gain to heart disease. Millions of people worldwide suffer insomnia and many turn to over the counter sleep aids, which often have some less than desirable side effects.
Awakened Health Co.'s organic & ethically sourced 'SLEEP LIKE MY HUSBAND' tea can help you fall asleep fast, and stay asleep. Our tea is made with 100% natural ingredients like chamomile and lavender, which have been shown to help people fall asleep faster and enjoy deeper sleep. Combine your evening brew with our recommendations for your best night sleep, naturally:
1. Reduce caffeine
Stick to no more than 1 espresso 'shot' per day (if you struggle with cutting it out completely), and avoid caffeine after midday. This allows time for your body to process the caffeine well before bedtime.
2. No Screens
Have a 'No Screen Time' rule for an hour before bed - this includes Phones, Tablets, Computers, TV's. The blue lights used on digital screens blocks the natural production of the sleep hormone, melatonin.
3. No distractions or electronics
Bedrooms are for 2 things only - sleep & nookie ;) Studies suggest even when turned off, phones and other electronic devices emit EMF's which can affect sleep quality, so keep phones in another room to charge overnight. Not being woken by notifications is another important benefit!
4. Warm Bath or shower
Water is such a beautiful energetic cleanser. A warm bath or shower before bed supports the nervous system by increasing the production of serotonin (our happiness hormone), which allows us to relax, resets our circadian rhythm, and encourages better sleep.
5. Natural Sleep Remedies
In the half hour before bed steep yourself a nourishing cup of 'Sleep Like My Husband' tea, and roll SLEEP oil on your wrists & massage into the soles of your feet. The combination of herbs & oils in both these products have been shown to relax the nervous system, and encourage restful sleep, naturally.
Are you ready for your best night sleep yet?
