Ultimate Sleep Enhancing Herbal Bundle
Have you ever considered the performance aspect of sleep?
It may not be a conventional approach, but it can be insightful.
Do you consider yourself a winner or a loser when it comes to sleep?
A winner sleeps soundly, quickly drifting off, staying asleep throughout the night, experiencing deep wave and REM cycles, and waking up refreshed, ready to tackle the day.
On the other hand, a loser struggles with insomnia, tossing and turning, racing thoughts, and waking up feeling drained and needing coffee to start the day.
Which category do you fall into?
I’ve always been a good sleeper, partly because sleep hasn’t been a primary focus at Lost Empire Herbs.
However, we offer some helpful herbs for those struggling with sleep.
Ashwagandha is a well-known adaptogen that can reduce stress but also promotes sleep, unlike other adaptogens that can be stimulating.
For some, taking a good dose of Ashwagandha can help them fall asleep right away, while for others, it takes a few weeks of regular use to rewire the body and mind to respond better to stress, leading to easier sleep.
Blue Vervain Spagyric Tincture helps with stress differently, targeting the nervous rather than the endocrine system.
This bitter nervine can help bring energy from the head down to the body, helping some people fall asleep.
Albizia, known as the “Tree of Happiness,” can uplift mood but also alleviate insomnia for some.
If racing thoughts keep you up at night, Albizia may be worth a try. Just be warned, it has a fiery taste that doesn’t match its effects.
On the other hand, Ziziphus doesn’t help with falling asleep, but it does seem to promote deeper sleep with less waking up.
Unfortunately, sleep issues vary from person to person, and one herb may not work for everyone.
It’s important to note that sleep is a complex and multi-faceted phenomenon, and there can be many factors that contribute to poor sleep, including:
- poor sleep hygiene,
- and underlying medical conditions.
That’s why it’s essential to approach sleep holistically and make lifestyle changes that promote better sleep.
Here are some tips:
- Establish a bedtime routine: Go to bed and wake up simultaneously every day, even on weekends. Create a relaxing bedtime routine like reading a book or taking a warm bath.
- Create a sleep-conducive environment: Keep your bedroom cool, dark, and quiet. Invest in a comfortable mattress and pillow. Use earplugs or a white noise machine to block out any external noise.
- Limit exposure to screens before bedtime: The blue light emitted by electronic devices can interfere with the production of the melatonin hormone, making it harder to fall asleep. Try to avoid screens for at least an hour before bedtime.
- Exercise regularly: Regular exercise can help you sleep better and reduce stress levels. However, try to exercise during the day, as vigorous exercise close to bedtime can interfere with sleep.
- Practice relaxation techniques: Relaxation techniques such as meditation, deep breathing, and yoga can help calm the mind and reduce stress levels, promoting better sleep.
By making these changes and incorporating herbal remedies, you can improve the quality of your sleep and perform better in your waking hours.
Remember, good sleep is an investment in your overall health and well-being.
