Optimizing Your Sacred Sleep & Routine Holistically
Fitness: Having a workout routine that is sustainable and efficient can work wonders for enhancing the quality of your sleep, but optimizing your sleep can also work wonders for the quality and sustainability of your workout routine.
Essential oils: It takes a few seconds to diffuse essential oils to create a spa-like atmosphere in your room. Some favorites include lavender oil and chamomile oil. I know many people like to drink tea before bed, but I like the efficiency of roll-on essential oils or diffuser oils.
Journaling: Keeping a journal by your bed may also help release any worries or to-do items you do not want to forget so that you can rest easily without stressing over those things all night.
Atmosphere: Adjusting the temperature of your room to your liking is also important for your comfort.
Adaptogens: While you should always consult with a medical doctor, supplements may help in some situations. Ashwagandha is my personal favourite. It is rooted in Ayurveda, a holistic and natural system of medicine in India, and has been used for millennia for its many health benefits. Its adaptogenic properties help the body maintain balance and adjust to stress.
