Are you looking for more sleep and energy?

If we sleep seven to nine hours as much as we need, we spend about one-third of our time sleeping, which is a nice part of the time. A lot of things happen in our bodies while we sleep: toxic compounds are removed and tissues are repaired to make our bodies function as healthily as possible. Brain pathways are formed and maintained so that we can recall past experiences, create new memories, stay focused, and respond quickly to a changing environment throughout the day.

But according to the CDC, one in three Americans doesn’t get enough sleep to function at its best. And of course, how much we sleep affects how much energy we have. If you need more sleep, you probably want more energy too. Several strategies can help in both departments.

SUPPLEMENTS

  1. To sleep

    Well Told Sleep Beauty promotes a state of calm and provides a sleep aid that does not create habits with just two ingredients, organic lemon balm and organic raspberries. Organic lemon balm, or Melissa officinalis, is a plant from the mint family that is traditionally used as a sleeping aid. New research is also showing its role in supporting sleep quality. Take two capsules daily, thirty minutes before bedtime. *

  2. To sleep

    In those occasional moments when you have trouble sleeping, our Knock Me Out chocolate mint-flavored chew with melatonin, L-tryptophan and vitamin B6 provides sleep support. Melatonin, a hormone produced by the pineal gland in the brain, helps regulate sleep and wake cycles, and L-tryptophan and vitamin B6 support the body’s own production of melatonin. Take Knock Me Out Chewing just before bed. You can start with one and increase to two as needed. *

  3. For energy

    More energy starts with enough sleep, but it doesn’t stop there. Getting the nutrients we need through a healthy diet is also critical, and quality supplements can help. (Read more about what makes a high quality accessory here. All goop protocols are manufactured in cGMP-certified facilities, which means that extensive testing is conducted to check for the presence of active ingredients and the absence of heavy metals and harmful microbes.) Why am I so tired? supports physical and mental fatigue with a high dose of B vitamins and a mixture of adaptogens full of traditional plant extracts. Take one pack a day. *

EXERCISE

  1. To sleep

    Physical activity can improve the quality and quantity of sleep. The ideal duration, time of day and style of exercise depend on your individual needs. But research shows that in general, the more you enjoy and the more you work, the better.

    If your choice is a choice of yoga (or mat) and you are looking for additional support, try Manduka’s GRP yoga mat. It has non-slip traction and a cushion six millimeters thick. We also like the cork block made of cork – it’s sturdy, durable and easy to grip. And cork is a more sustainable material than your typical yoga block.

    Exercise can also increase energy levels. When you want a little resistance training, these three-pound hand weights offer light resistance with a hexagonal shape without rolling to help your body stabilize during exercise or keep the weights in place while stored. If you’re looking for extra foot resistance, attach these weights to your ankles, every pound each.

AROMATHERAPY

  1. To sleep

    Creating a relaxing night ritual is a great start. Try to eliminate sleep disturbances, such as noise and electronics interference by flashing lights, and add things that can help you fall asleep, like aromatherapy. Comforting blends of lavender, geranium, chamomile, incense and other essential oils of Vitruvi Unwind Kit are soothing things to help you settle into bed for a peaceful sleep. Choose one of four blends (twilight, silence, nightcap, sleep) that you can spray or add to bath or body oils.
