Creating a Bedtime Routine with CBD
Sleep is the foundation of good health but for many Americans a good night’s sleep does not come easy. Customers have reported great results improving sleep with the help of Eden’s Herbals CBD products. This article will give you tips and tricks to creating a solid bedtime routine to help you get the sleep you need.
Why is Sleep Important?
Sleep is important for your focus and productivity during the day. If you’re currently working from home, you’ll need that concentration and self discipline to get your work done without the added benefit of being at an office.
When you get enough sleep you also more likely to be able to maintain a healthy lifestyle by sticking to a nutritious diet and exercising enough. If your physical activity level has been reduced because of the COVID-19 pandemic, getting enough sleep at night can motivate you to get outside for a walk or do an online workout at home to keep your body moving. If you do workout, having enough rest the night before can improve your athletic performance to help you get the most out of your workout.
The temptation to snack throughout the day is also very real and if you are tired during the day you are more likely to give into those temptations and reach for less healthy options. Some evidence has shown that sleep helps to regulate the hormones that control appetite, if you don’t get enough sleep you might just feel more hungry which can lead to overeating and weight gain. If you are adjusting to a more sedentary lifestyle during social distancing, diet and nutrition is even more important than ever.
Creating Good Sleep Habits
Like any new routine you have to be consistent if you want it to become a habit. A bedtime routine can be an instrumental part in falling asleep faster and staying asleep. Creating a solid routine can signal to your brain that it’s time to get ready for sleep so that when you do shut off the lights and go to bed you can actually fall asleep.
Time Magazine’s guide to better sleep suggests setting an alarm two hours before your expected bedtime so that you have about to hours to relax from your day. Winding down is a way for the body and mind to digest the day and relax before it’s time to sleep.
Try not to use devices such as phones, laptops, or tablets an hour or two before bed. The blue light in screens can have a negative effect on your body’s ability to produce melatonin. Melatonin is the hormone that tells your body when it’s time to sleep and when it’s time to wake up.
When you begin winding down for the day an hour or two before bedtime, try taking three Eden’s Herbals CBD gummies to help you settle down. The gummies will begin to help you feel drowsy and ready for sleep when bedtime comes.
Even the habit alone will begin to signal to your brain that it’s time to prepare for sleep. However, anecdotal evidence has shown that CBD can help individuals fall asleep and stay asleep. Some evidence has even shown that CBD can improve REM sleep which is the deepest sleep that one can be in.
If you have trouble sleeping, try creating a bedtime routine that includes a small dose of CBD to improve your sleep. You will have more energy, feel less stressed, and be able to keep up a healthy lifestyle during the COVID-19 pandemic.
