How to Improve Sleep Quality and Avoid Sleepless Nights
Most people benefit from an evening routine, and with our always-on-the-go society, it can help to have a predictable plan to help you wind down before bed. Read on to find ways CBD can be used for occasional sleeplessness and incorporated into your sleep routine.
Winding Down before Bed
As you prepare yourself for bed, it can be helpful to find quiet, enjoyable activities to minimize stimulation. Options like reading or doing a puzzle with your family are both great choices. Adding a few drops of our Daily Balance Tinctures to a cup of tea is a great way to wind down. The nourishing essential oils in our CBD Hemp Balm helps promote skin health before bed. Make it part of a routine so it starts to trigger that wind-down response quickly.
Create a Sleep Routine
Establishing a predetermined sleep schedule can help your body adapt to a routine cycle of sleep. By sticking to the schedule you set, you’ll eventually train yourself to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. This can be done by going to bed at the same time each night and making sure you set an alarm to wake up at the same time every morning.
Unplug from Screens and Electronics
It is a well known fact that blue light screens can disrupt your sleep cycle. The light tricks your brain into thinking it’s still daytime, causing you to produce less natural melatonin. This makes it more difficult for you to fall asleep, so avoid it for a sufficient amount of time before bed. One tip is to keep your phone, computer, and tablet out of reach from your bed.
Foods rich in potassium contain trace amounts of melatonin that can promote restful sleep. Eating nutrient-dense foods will also give you the energy to get through the day at hand. If you find yourself waking up periodically throughout the night, it could mean that you’re missing out on key nutrients in your diet.
In addition to eating the right foods, you can promote quality sleep by adding dietary supplements to your routine. Botanical supplements, such as CBD, help support a relaxed mind and a restful night’s sleep. Read on to learn about our dietary supplements that combine CBD and melatonin, which work together to deliver a restful night for those with occasional sleeplessness.
CBD and Melatonin
Melatonin is a natural hormone that helps set our circadian rhythms appropriately. This helps the body recognize and react to dark and light and signal when it is time to sleep. We can promote a quality sleep cycle by boosting melatonin levels that occur naturally in the body. Coupled with CBD’s ability for promoting a calm mind, combining CBD and melatonin can lead to a very restful night.
Our Good Night CBD Sleep Capsules would make excellent additions to your nighttime routine. The capsules take that ease one step further by being tasteless, easy to down with water and more conveniently transportable (good for a sleep-over). Because our CBD Hemp oil is organic and works with your own body’s system, you don’t have to be concerned about withdrawal or side effects like you may with over-the-counter sleep aids. There’s no risk of feeling ‘groggy’ or needing more caffeine to wake up the next morning.
CBD Can Promote Natural Sleep
Getting adequate sleep is a key component to any healthy lifestyle. Our bodies require long periods of sleep to restore and rejuvenate, grow muscle, repair tissue, and synthesize hormones. As every new parent of a newborn baby knows, sleep is precious. Adding CBD tinctures for a sleep routine can help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer and feel more refreshed in the morning.
