NO MORE SLEEPLESS NIGHTS. IT'S TIME TO SLEEP BETTER
It might surprise you if you knew how many people have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep every night. Just ask your friends and you’ll be sure to find one or two other insomniacs wishing they had a solution for their restless slumber. A healthy person needs between 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night to function properly. While you are asleep, your body takes the opportunity to restore itself by repairing cells, restoring energy, and removing toxins from the body. This can only happen when you are asleep.
Many things can affect the quality of your sleep like medications, mental health, physical conditions, caffeine, and the environment that surrounds you. A noisy space or uncomfortable bed have been the culprits many times! When you don’t get the required amount of sleep every night, there can be many negative effects on your health. If your sleep cycle is very erratic, you can develop serious health problems like high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and depression. You may also develop wrinkles and dark circles that affect your appearance. This is why it’s important to regulate your sleep and ensure you are getting enough of it.
Studies have shown that Cannabidiol or CBD, derived from the cannabis plant, can help you get a good night’s sleep. We need more research to come out before we can understand exactly how CBD helps us sleep better, but from studies that have been conducted, we can see that CBD works with our body’s endocannabinoid system, which helps us maintain a state of balance and stability. Think of it as having a calming effect on your nerves, allowing you to relax and slip into a comfortable sleep. No more lying awake to the sound of your own anxiety. Doesn’t that sound wonderful?
The dosage of CBD that you need to take varies from person to person. It depends on factors like weight, personal body composition and the nature of your sleeping problems. It’s important to discuss these factors with your doctor who will then prescribe the appropriate dosage for you.
What’s great about using CBD to get better sleep is that CBD is generally safe to take and won’t give you any unwanted side effects. You don’t have to worry about hallucinations or drowsiness the next day. As long as you use CBD responsibly, it can help you go from night owl to asleep like a baby in no time!
It’s also fun and helpful to create a warm, inviting sleep routine that makes you look forward to winding down at the end of each day. Try to remove stressors from your sleep environment like loud alarms and unnecessary digital gadgets. Turn on some dim lights, play some soothing ambient noise if that helps and make your bedroom feel cozy and comfortable. You’ve probably heard this a thousand times but it’s very effective – put your phone away at least fifteen minutes before you want to sleep. Keep it out of arm’s reach so you’re not tempted to check it if you wake up in the middle of the night.
Sleeping well doesn’t have to feel like a chore but it’s good to find the ideal support that you need until you get back onto a regular sleep cycle. Remember, if you sleep well tonight, you’ll feel incredible tomorrow!
