Sleep is something that easily gets pushed aside when life gets busy or stressful. We all have suffered from restless nights or know of someone who has. A good night sleep is vital for overall well-being and to help support your body feel healthier. Here are three ways you can improve your sleep.
Proper nutrition is the basis of a healthy lifestyle. Focus on eating healthy foods through out the day and reduce and/or eliminate junk foods as much as possible. Eating a healthy nutrition helps your body feel more in balance, support your hormones and overall well being. If you have trouble eating a proper nutrition throughout the day, be sure to add a good quality supplement that is based on whole foods not synthetic vitamins. Getting your vitamins and minerals from food is always ideal but sometimes it’s difficult to do with the everyday hectic lifestyle. The doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack is one of the best on the market. It also comes in a vegan option. The package includes 3 different vitamin bottles, Alpha CRS+, xEO Omega and Mircroplex VMz to address different needs in the body and reduce oxidative stress.
2. Balance Hormones
Balancing your hormones naturally is a great way to keep harmony in your body and help you get better sleep. For balanced hormones, nutrition is the key as well as sleep so getting a good night sleep helps your hormones stay more balance and having balanced hormones helps you get better sleep. You want to eliminate junk and processed foods as much as possible and avoid caffeine especially late at night. Also taking a good multi-vitamin is a good way to assure your body is getting all the vitamins and minerals it needs. Essential oil blends such as the Whisper – Women’s Blend or Women’s Monthly blend are great for supporting hormones. At night time diffusing Clary Sage essential oil is good for supporting hormones as well.
3. Create A Relaxing Environment
In order for your body to feel relaxed and induce sleep naturally, aim for a relaxed environment before going to sleep. Avoid watching TV or staring at blue screens from devices which can activate the part of the brain that you are trying to shut down when going to sleep. Also having a relaxing night time routine can help your body reach a relaxed state easier and allow you to fall asleep easier. Have a journal and write down everything that is circulating in your mind so that you don’t end up being up all night thinking about them. Take a bath with a cup of epsom salt and a few drops of doTERRA lavender essential oil. Diffuse lavender and cedarwood or doTERRA serenity essential oil blend to supporting a relaxing environment. doTERRA Console is a great essential oil blend to use too at the end of a long, stressful day. Put a drop on your hands, rub together and inhale. Use a drop of doTERRA lavender essential oil on your pillow or sheets and apply a drop or two on the bottoms of your feet. You can also apply Roman Chamomile on the bottoms of the feet. Take 1-2 Serenity capsules to support relaxing and sleep.
