The ultimate guide to clean sleeping
-May 21, Jenny Paul, Living -
It seems to be the stress of home schooling and financial worries during this complicated time of self-isolation that is leaving women and men sleep-deprived and stumbling through the day like a zombie.
The ultimate clean sleeping guide
If you’re really looking forward to a proper nights sleep, make sure you stay out of the kitchen and away from temptations after dinner. Avoid bedtime snacks and aim for a 12 hour fasting window, which means finishing dinner by 8pm and having breakfast at 8am.
One of the simplest ways to have a good clean sleep is to make sure you’re completely relaxed when you go to bed. Try a head or foot massage but you can also de-stress after a long day with a bath with essential oils.
Boost your collagen as you sleep
Some people swear by copper infused pillows as part of a clean sleeping lifestyle. The copper is said to boost the skin’s collagen and elastin levels and has been proven to have antibacterial qualities.
You can always boost your collagen levels through your diet. Collagen is found in dark green vegetables, citrus fruits and peppers.
Although it might not be for everyone, you could try wearing some form of heated socks to regulate the temperature of your feet while you sleep.
Try “Psychic Sleep”, a form of meditation that allows your body to get all the benefits of sleep while you’re actually still awake! There are many meditation apps on the market and you can find playlists on YouTube.
Not only is meditation beneficial for your sleep it’s also great for reducing stress and easing anxiety.
Practice digital detoxes as a trick to sleep well
Make sure your bedroom is a technology-free zone. That’s phones, TV, computers – everything.
If you’re looking for a little natural help, try magnesium. Magnesium is known as ‘nature’s tranquilliser’ and helps relax our muscles; it is also needed for conversion of tryptophan to serotonin and melatonin, which helps you sleep.
