HOW TO SLEEP BETTER

HOW TO SLEEP BETTER

We all know that sleep is precious. Because It's the time our bodies rest, repair and recharge, vitally important to our health. However, getting enough shuteye isn't always easy. One in three of us suffering from mild insomnia at some stage in our lives.

Quality sleep

To help yourself get enough quality rest each night, experts recommend establishing a daily 'bedtime routine'. Because this help you relax and get your body primed for sleep.

Eating at least 2-3 hours before you aim to retire is essential. As a heavy meal too late at night slows down the digestive process and leads to disturbed sleep.

Taking a warm, mineral-rich magnesium bath last thing at night can work wonders. Because this can help soothe tired, restless muscles and relax your mind. Which helps you unwind at the end of a busy day.

According to the World Health Organisation, 75% of us are thought to be deficient in magnesium. This enhances around 300 enzyme-related processes in the body. Including inducing sleep. It is also a natural muscle relaxant which is key in allowing the body to initiate the relaxation response.

Bathing in magnesium flakes is the perfect way to up your levels of this essential mineral. This can be effectively absorbed through the skin. Simply add 250g-1kg (1-4 cups) of Westlab's Relaxing Magnesium Flakes to your warm bath. Then blissfully soak for 20 minutes.

Alternatively, you could try the Sleep salts from our new Alchemy range. Epsom salts infused with the calming aromas of essential oils jasmine and lavender, with a touch of valerian to help you drift off into a deep sleep.

According to sleep experts, dropping the body's core temperature by first raising it in a warm bath. This sends blood away from the brain and skin surfaces leaving you feeling drowsy. As you step out of the warm water, your body cools quickly reinforcing the desire for sleep.
