Our night sleep is one of the most important bodily functions we need.
Whilst sleeping, our body repairs and rejuvenates itself and should be ready for the next day.
Unfortunately sleep is impaired by various things, such as stress, anxiety, depression, and sometimes illness.
Sleeping throughout the day can also have a detrimental effect on a good nights sleep. Although some call it cat napping, or even power napping, it's just short amounts of sleep, that give us an energy boost. If possible napping should be avoided as it can interfere with a good nights rest.
Some have no trouble falling asleep, but experience problems sleeping through the night with waking at intervals, and being restless. Yet others toss and turn before drifting off, and the more we try, the harder it seems to naturally nod off.
There are several ways we can aid sleep ourselves, before we turn to more dramatic remedies, i.e. medication.
Diet plays an important part in our sleep deprivation. Eating late can disrupt our digestive system, and certainly caffeine-rich drinks are a big no-no.
It is advisable to give technology a rest at least a couple of hours before bed. So, mobile phones, computers, tablets, etc. should also be put to bed.
Having bedroom temperature at a comfortable levels is a good idea, not too hot, not too cold. Also any bright lights should be dimmed.
A warm nightcap drink can also help promote sleep. Warm milk is a firm favourite at bedtime, but have you ever thought of adding a few drops of CBD oil.
CBD oil is great for inducing relaxation. It relieves stress, anxiety, and even depression.
CBD can be taken directly under the tongue in just a few drops, or added into your bedtime drink.
