I’M GOOD WITH A FEW HOURS OF SLEEP. 1-2 GLASSES OF WINE HELPS ME RELAX

I’ve heard clients tell me that a few glasses of wine helps them fall asleep, yes, alcohol can help you relax, but this is only for the first half of the night.

Alcohol disrupts blood sugar levels creating a drop in blood sugar, the body will try to balance blood sugar by releasing stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol.

This is the last thing you want during sleep, as these hormones prepare your body for flight or fight.

And it will keep you awake for the second half of the night, which ends in a miserable night’s sleep.

Reduce your alcohol intake, preferably eliminate it completely before going to bed.

3 natural ways to promote better sleep quality

1. EAR PLUGS: Noise is a common cause of sleep disorders. Even within our homes we have an overload of sounds from children, pets or even snoring from a partner. Inserting earplugs can simplify life. Earplugs can save you hours of lost sleep.

2. APPLICATIONS FOR SLEEP: You now have smart watches that inform you about the quality of your sleep. Personally, I believe that your body can provide you with all the information you need about the quality of your sleep. It’s pretty simple if you wake up feeling drained then you know you didn’t sleep well regardless of what a smartwatch says. But by saying I’m a fan of a sleep app called PZIZZ that uses a technology known as binaural beats, these beats can get the brain into the right state to induce sleep naturally.

3. AROMATHERAPY: There are essential oils that promote relaxation; chamomile, lavender, bergamot, jasmine, rose, and sandalwood are the most popular. Add a few drops to your bath, humidifier, or sprinkle a few drops on your pillow.

5 FOODS THAT PROMOTE SLEEP

1. DAIRY: Dairy gets a bad rap nowadays and for good reason, but there are some benefits in small amounts of dairy, as they contain melatonin and tryptophan that promote relaxation. Good sources to eat are cottage cheese, cheese, and eggs.

2. CARBOHYDRATES: The best sources before bed are brown rice, oatmeal, or rice cakes.

3. FOODS RICH IN PROTEINS: Turkey, chicken, beef, and pork contain tryptophan, while salmon and herring contain omega-3 fatty acids.

4. FRUITS: Bananas and cherries contain magnesium, a natural muscle relaxant.

5. NUTS: Especially walnuts. The research found that people who began to eat walnuts, their quality of sleep tripled.

By following some of these tips, you can expect increased energy, peak performance at work, and overall well-being. Many of my clients have used some of these same tips and now realize the health benefits of getting a good night’s sleep.
