What's Keeping You From Getting A Good Night's Sleep?

So what is it that can keep you from getting a good night’s sleep?

Is has been my experience that there are 3 main reasons for this which I am going to share with you over the next few weeks.

And if you have trouble sleeping, I suggest you do a self-assessment as we proceed.
Because it could be one, any two or possible all 3 of these.

The first one is … are you over-stimulating your brain tissue before bed-time?

Secondly, are you overwhelmed with mental-emotional stress?

And finally, are there any structural issues such as your spinal alignment and/or your sleeping posture?

Today we are going to talk about the first one and when it comes to over-stimulating your brain tissue, here are the biggies …

Firstly; TV, cell phones and computers. It is highly recommended that you do NOT interact with any form of technology for at least 1 hour before bedtime.

You need to give your brain tissue some time to unwind and relax because chances are it has been subjected to electronic stimulation and electro-magnetic frequencies all day long.

It is also highly recommended that your bedroom is a wifi-free zone especially if you are a fan of 5G.

Secondly; alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and sugar are all stimulants. After your dinner time meal avoid alcohol, coffee or caffeine in any form and sugar (fruit juices, soft drinks etc.). It is also recommended not to use any nicotine for at least an hour before bedtime.

A glass of warm milk or a cup of relaxing, soothing, calming tea will serve your sleep habits far better.

And finally, if you need a little snack after your dinner time meal and before bedtime, avoid the sweet, sugary treats. These are the worst! Instead have a small protein shake or a cup of oatmeal.

These will not mess with your blood sugar and they will not cause insulin spiking creating a much more harmonious internal environment for your body to rest and repair.

Next time we will be talking about mental-emotional stress.
