First, your room should have shades or curtains to block out the light. When it’s light, your brain thinks it’s time to wake up. Add a Himalayan Natural Salt Lamp for the light you need to prepare for bed and let it purify the air and create a cozy, ambient light.
Next, be sure your bed has Island Slumber Bamboo sheets, Memory Foam pillows, pillow cases, and comforter. Bamboo will keep you warm and cool, dry and comfortable year-round, and it is naturally hypo-allergenic, so no more sneezing during the night.
Add an Island Slumber Gravity Sleep Oasis® Weighted Blanket for even more comfort. It’s like a nightlong hug.
If you need to block out even more light, keep your 3D Blackout Sleep Mask at bedside, along with Essential Lavender Oil to rub on your wrists before retiring. The natural properties of lavender soothe and heal, helping you drift off to dreamland.
A warm cup of chamomile or peppermint tea will aide your sleep; but forego the brandy. Alcohol will not help you sleep deeply.
Remember to turn off your devices at least 30 minutes to an hour before bedtime; instead try some deep breathing or light yoga.
Prepare to sleep deeply, rejuvenating your whole being and wake up feeling new.
How Deep, Healing Sleep Your Makes Life Better.
Sleeping well has many rewards that offer immediate benefit. Here are a few of the best ones.
You focus better and learn more easily. A good night’s sleep makes it easier to keep your attention on something long enough to learn it and remember it. You will have fewer memory difficulties, too, meaning you’re less likely to go blank remembering someone’s name or where you put the keys.
Because you feel better, you feel happier. Being deprived of sleep makes your emotions harder to control. You feel more stressed and find it harder to cope with displeasing things. Better sleep leaves you less cranky and nicer to be around.
You perform better and get things done. At work, you’ll notice that you get through tasks faster and make fewer mistakes.
You don’t feel hungry all the time. Healthy sleep helps regulate two important hormones: ghrelin, which makes you feel hungry, and leptin, which makes you feel full. Lack of sleep causes those hormones to not perform correctly and you feel hungrier. This is one of the reasons why people who are sleep-deprived are likelier to struggle with their weight.
Your health is better. Your immune system needs sleep to stay strong and fight off colds and other infections. And in the long-term, getting plenty of sleep helps reduce your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other serious diseases.
