Mindfulness Sleep Wellness

Why can’t I fall asleep and stay asleep even though I’m completely exhausted?

➡️ I have a few strategies for you right here – I don’t think I need to bang on about the importance of quality sleep and the profound effects that it has on overall health and well-being. 

Do you:

❓ Have trouble falling asleep? 

❓ End up looking at the ceiling for half the night? 

❓ Wake up at random times in the middle of the night with racing thoughts? 

This used to be me before I started implementing a few strategies that allowed me to fall into a deep sleep within minutes of my head hitting the pillow: 

🔹 Avoiding any stimulants, e.g. caffeine too late in the day… 11 am cutoff! 

🔹 Not consuming any calories within two hours of going to sleep

🔹 Get 10-30 mins of morning sun…as uncovered as possible ➡️ this will help set your circadian rhythm (sleep cycle patterns)

🔹 Remove blue light from devices, apply a blue light filter, or wear blue-light-blocking glasses  ➡️ See glamorous photo!!

🔹 Have a nightly journaling practice where you write down 3 things you did well that day and 3 things you are looking forward to the next day ➡️ being grateful helps turn down stresses from the day and puts your mind at ease 

🔹 Take magnesium citrate or magnesium glycinate 30 minutes prior to sleep

🔹 When you turn your light off apply the 🌟 4-7-8 nasal breathing practice technique 🌟

      ➡️ Breathe in through your nose for 4 secs, hold your breath for 7 secs, breathe out through your nose for 8 secs  

      ➡️ Do as many rounds as you require, hands-down the BEST SLEEPING PILL you’ll ever take… and it’s free!
