Tips for Better Sleep

Tips for Better Sleep

 

Sleep is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, but sometimes it can be hard to fall asleep and get the recommended eight hours of rest.  Below is a list of great tips to help you get better sleep.

Set a Sleep Schedule-

Our bodies get used to routines and setting a sleep schedule will help stimulate our body’s natural circadian rhythm to function properly. Setting a set bed time where you lay down at the same time every night will help you create healthy sleep patterns.

Avoid Electronics an Hour before Bed-

How many nights do we stay up way too late because we were scrolling through social media on our phones? A helpful tip to get more rest is to plug your phone up on the other side of the room before bed and leave it there until morning. This will limit the temptation to spend unnecessary time on social media and promote relaxation.

Dim the Lights in the Evening-

Our bodies naturally respond to light stimulation, so by dimming the lights a few hours before bed you send a signal to your brain that sleep is coming. This teaches your body to wind down and can help you fall asleep easier.  Natural light sources such as Himalayan salt lamps can provide a natural glow that will not keep you awake.  Using these in the evenings instead of traditional incandescent bulbs promotes wellness.

Drink an Herbal Tea-

There are many natural teas that can assist you in relaxing before bedtime. Teas such as chamomile and lavender mixed with honey have been used for centuries to promote calmness after a rough day.  Drinking a warm tea before bed is a great way to help you relax.

(Disclaimer- Do not start any herbal remedy without first speaking to your doctor. This is not a suggestion for medical care.)

Take a Warm Bath-

Heat is a natural muscle relaxant. Taking a warm bath before bed can help ease you into a more relaxed state. You can also add comforting elements such as bath soaks, essential oils or epsom salt into your bath water for extra pampering.

Listen to Calming Music-

Enjoying instrumental piano music or listening to your favorite band before bed can help you de-stress and fall asleep faster. A good practice is to listen to calming music for at least 15 minutes as you lay down for bed. This can help you unwind and fall asleep easier. There are also audio options created for inducing sleep such as guided imagery, biblical meditation or binaural beats.  

Create a Comforting Sleep Space-

Trying to fall asleep in a messy, chaotic space can inhibit your ability to rest. A helpful sleeping tip is to create a calming space that will allow you to drift into sleep easily.  You can do this by organizing your bedroom, having a comfortable mattress and pillow and also making sure your room is a nice, cool temperature.

 

At White Naturals, we are dedicated to making sure our clients can live their best life possible. We hope these tips help you find better, more restful sleep!

Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

Great Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

 

Fathers are an important part of our lives. They were the people who taught us how to ride a bike, helped us with our homework and guided us into adulthood. This is why we celebrate Father’s Day! But, finding the perfect Father’s Day gift can be difficult. Below is a list of great gift ideas sure to put a smile on any dad’s face!

 

  • Home baked goodies. They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!  Making your dad’s favorite dessert or meal is great way to show him you care in a loving, inexpensive way.  Baking a pie, cake or even a main dish is a wonderful gift you and your dad can enjoy together!

 

  • Basic Essentials. Every dad could always use a new pair of socks or shoes.  Find out what your dad needs and give him some basic essentials. Does he need a new pair of work boots? Are all his socks filled with holes?  Could he use a new coat?  Find out and treat your dad to a new necessity!

 

 

  • Sponsor a Hobby. Does your dad have a hobby he enjoys? For example, if he is a golfer, he may enjoy a new set of golf clubs. If he collects stamps, a great gift would be some new pieces for his collection. Simply offering to spend time with him doing something he enjoys is a wonderful Father’s day gift!

 

  • Men’s Care Products. Beauty products aren’t just for women. Items like aftershave, cologne, soaps, and other care items such as our line of beard grooming products make great Father’s Day gifts!

 

 

  • In this day and age, even the older population uses technology.  Does your dad need an upgrade on his phone, tablet, computer or TV?  Upgrading your father to a newer model is another gift idea sure to please even the pickiest of parents!

 

 

 

Father’s Day isn’t about the gifts, it’s about appreciating a very important man in your life. Take some time this Father’s Day to let your dad know how much he means to you.

Happy Father’s Day from White Naturals!
