Without enough sleep, our body experiences a wide array of stresses and health concerns, ranging from irritability to weight gain, depending on the prolonged deprivation of rest. We need sleep but for many of us, finding it can be difficult. We have stressful lives and we live in a fast-paced world that never seems to stop. Luckily, there are some natural ways that you can ease your body into getting a better night’s sleep.
Aromatherapy: Essential oils like lavender and chamomile have been shown to be effective in supporting better sleep and calm, so you can try misting your bedding with an essential oil blend or spray that uses these essential oils for sleep, or you can try a supplement that uses essential oils as a natural sleep aid, such as UNDA Aroma 23 Anxiety Aroma Plex.
Melatonin: Melatonin is a natural herbal remedy for sleep that helps you support your pineal gland, which helps in the regulation of your body’s sleep cycle. We offer several melatonin supplements in our selection at OVitaminPro, including Pure Encapsulations Melatonin, Melatonin Liquid, Designs for Health Melatonin, and Sublingual Melatonin by Douglas Laboratories.
Valerian: Valerian has been used since ancient times for inducing calm and sleep, as it promotes muscle relaxation and the release of tension. Valerian root or valerian extract is often found in natural sleep aids and you can choose a blended supplement that uses valerian as an ingredient, or a pure valerian supplement.
Meditation: Meditation is shown to calm the mind and body both physically and spiritually, which can sometimes help in getting a better night’s sleep. People who try meditation on a regular basis often see improved blood pressure, reduced stress levels, and an overall sense of wellbeing. Start out by meditating before bed, on your own or using a guided meditation as you guide your body towards relaxation and a more restful sleep.
