3 Simple Steps to Improve Sleep

When's the last time you had a GREAT nights sleep?

If it's been a while then we HAVE to chat...

Sleep can be a real struggle for so many people all throughout life.

But then midlife hormone changes happen and... Well, if you know you know, right?

For me...I've been fortunately still sleeping through the night, BUT I haven't been dreaming.

It just kind of crept up on me...

But a dreamless night can mean that you're:

🔹not getting good REM sleep
🔹not waking up fully rested and
🔹and can even be a cause for decreased mood and energy during the day.

And on the "woo-woo" side of things, dreaming can be a great way to process stress and gain clarity.

As an example, I've woken up from a dream before feeling a REAL shift in my relationship to a colleague only to find that my interactions with them were kinder and more relaxed in real life the next day.

Was it the dream? Was it an energy that needed to shift between us on the subconscious level before it could happen on the conscious level?

Who knows, but I know dreams are super important and I was missing them.

So, when I heard that there was a new natural approach to activating a healthy circadian rhythm (sleep cycle) I gave it a try.

It's a new approach to taking the right amounts of the right micronutrients at the right time of day along with some gentle adaptogenic herbs made to ACTIVATE our body to do what it knows how to do.

The formulators say that it's nutrition that allows for your body to stay in synch with it's natural rhythms to calm your mind at night and boosting your energy and focus during the day.

AND...it delivered. It took a few nights to synch up but then...

I was DREAMING again! & I've been waking up before my alarm!

It's honestly too good not to share...

How would you describe what is feels like when you wake up fully refreshed?

Waking up refreshed, to me, feels like a fresh squeezed lemonade on a hot summers day.

So many people TAKE melatonin to sleep...Did you know that melatonin is a hormone that your body makes?

Taking what the body is not making is not meant to be a long term solution...

It's far better to remind the body to make what it knows how to make already.

This new sleep solution is an ACTIVATION product that reminds your body how to MAKE what it needs.

MAKING vs TAKING is a game changer.

Not only does this AM/PM sleep solution activate healthy sleep cycles, but it also provides key nutrients needed to support cell and gene activation. So if you're a science geek, there's load to geek out about here.

Looking for ways that you can audit your lifestyle to improve sleep? Here's 3 tips to consider...

Keep it cool.
Our bodies evolved to sleep in cooler temperatures. Optimal sleep conditions for humans are actually a slightly-frigid 65 degrees fahrenheit. Before going to bed, bump the thermostat down a few notches. And if your significant other prefers to sleep with the temperature higher, take a hot shower before bed. The sudden increase and drop in temperature produces the same effect. Plus, who doesn’t like a hot shower.

Use your bed for sleep.
This might sound obvious. But for many of us, the bed is also where we watch Netflix, surf the internet, read, or even eat. Your brain picks up on these cues and has a hard time switching tracks when it’s time to finally go to sleep for the day. Do all that stuff somewhere else and keep your bed dedicated to sleep. You’ll notice a difference.

Mind the light.
Ever wonder why you tend to feel tired and energized at the same times every day? That’s your circadian rhythms at work, and they play a huge role in sleep. Circadian rhythms can also be manipulated by outside factors – especially light. Exposing yourself to bright light or computer screens late at night can trick your body into thinking it’s two in the afternoon instead of 2 in the morning.
