Sleep Tip #1 Cover me in Sunshine
Sunshine + Sleep Hygiene = Zzzzz
Most people know that they need to get enough sleep, but did you know that there is such a thing as sleep hygiene?
Sleep hygiene is the set of habits and environmental factors that can impact the quality of your sleep.
One important factor is exposure to sunlight. Sunlight helps to regulate our circadian rhythm, which is our internal sleep-wake cycle. When we are exposed to sunlight during the day, it signals to our bodies that it is time to be awake and active. Conversely, when it starts to get dark at night, our bodies begin to prepare for sleep.
That’s why it’s important to get some sunlight during the day – it can help you sleep better at night. So next time you’re feeling tired, try taking a walk outside during the day and soaking up some vitamin D from the sun.
Before bed, have a nice warm shower and moisturise afterwards with some Magnesium Lotion in Calm which will eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain, enhance blood circulation & is sleep-inducing. Popping a sleep mask on also helps keep out unnecessary light ensuring you drift off to sleepy-time bliss!
Wishing you good nights & days ahead.
