A Good Night’s Sleep: The Key to Wellness
Aug. 16, 2021
It’s without a doubt getting a good night’s sleep is crucial to overall health and wellness. To function at optimal levels our bodies need the time to rest and recuperate, strengthening our immune system and brain function. If not addressed, lack of sleep has major detrimental impacts on both physical and mental states – not exactly what we need right now while trying to deal with stresses and strains of life in 2021.
Fact: In the USA up to 30% of adults from disruptive sleep patterns and 10% have severe sleep issues.
Insomnia and the Global Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has had disastrous implications on mental health and wellness – increasing the cases of depression, anxiety, and the list goes on. It’s no surprise that insomnia and sleep disorders are high on this list. The death of loved ones, solitude during strict lockdown regulations, and anxiety around job security are all factors that exacerbate how we “switch off” at the end of the day, and how we struggle to sleep soundly.
Taking Steps towards Better Sleep
As everyone has different reasons and unique situations, treatment defers accordingly. Traditionally medicine is often costly (also, potentially addictive), which if used consistently over a long period of time can lead to some serious negative long term side effects.
Natural sleep supplements have been tried and tested over decades, some for thousands of years, like hibiscus, melatonin and magnesium. These are safe, natural and carry low risk for side effects and addiction.
Quality of rest matters just as much as quantity – so tossing and turning all night is as bad for your health and wellbeing as being unable to fall asleep.
We outline some of the best ways to get closer to sleeping like a rock.
- Avoid caffeine and alcohol before bed – skip that nightcap or espresso after dinner.
- Do regular physical exercise – even 20 minutes of brisk walking will do.
- Stop scrolling! Rather read a book than stare at a screen, at least 30 minutes before bedtime.
- Meditation and a peaceful, dark environment – breathing and feeling safe in your ‘sleep-space’ is crucial.
- Take natural sleep supplements – last, but very much not the least.
