Are you looking to improve the quality of your rest this Autumn? As days are getting shorter again, it’s essential to add a bit more TLC to our routine. Our friends at Nutravita share some of their top tips to help you catch some proper beauty sleep.
Reduce screen time
Research shows that reducing the amount of blue light transmitted from your screens before bedtime will vastly improve your sleep quality! So, try turning your phone onto night-mode in the evenings or wear glasses with blue light lenses to reduce your blue light exposure. Try turning off all tech (yes that includes Netflix!) at least an hour before bed and practice some tech-free self-care during that sacred time – which leads nicely on to our second tip…
Create a wind-down routine that suits you
We live in a hectic, fast-paced world yet our brains love routine and thrive off continuous patterns! Creating your own personal bedtime routine and sticking to it will have a profound impact on your quality of sleep! Whether it’s journaling, reading, or a candle-lit bath with essential oils, creating positive habits before bedtime will relax your body and mind to positively impact your quality of sleep.
Certain supplements are scientifically proven to calm the body and aid the mind for a restful deep night’s sleep.
1) Magnesium is a great mineral with fantastic calming properties. It may help to reduce anxiety and stress, aiding the nervous system for a better night’s sleep. We recommend using Nutravita’s Natural Night Complex Vegan Capsules which have been carefully formulated with selected botanicals and minerals including Lemon Balm, Camomile and Magnesium to help you drift naturally.
2) Nutravita’s Evening Primrose Oil Vegan Softgels are especially beneficial for women going through Menopause because Primrose Oil contains essential fatty acids that can help to reduce night sweats, insomnia, anxiety, and hot flashes. Nutravita’s Primrose Oil Softgels also contain Vitamin A and E which help to maintain normal skin function – a win-win!
3) Ashwagandha is a great apoptogenic herb that has long been used in ancient traditional medicine. The herbs benefits include improving brain function, managing stress and lowering cortisol levels for a deeper, longer night’s sleep. Nutravita’s Organic Ashwagandha Vegan Capsules are Certified Organic by the Soil Association and have been carefully sourced from farms in India.
