4 unexpected ways to relax and sleep better starting tonight

4 Ways to Help You Sleep - Green Roads Wellness Blog

Does this scenario sound familiar? You’re exhausted and can’t wait for your head to hit the pillow… except when it does, your mind starts racing and it won’t calm down so you can sleep.

 

When you do eventually drift off, you wake up groggy and even less equipped to deal with day-to-day stress. The next night, the cycle repeats.

 

Maybe you even follow the other standard advice: You ditch your devices and limit caffeine before bed. You might have even tried melatonin (the hormone made by your body, the levels of which rise and help initiate sleep as part of the sleep cycle). Here, a few other simple strategies and tips to trade stress for sleep

1. Consider taking products that combine CBD and melatonin

CBD (cannabidiol) is a remarkable compound that’s found naturally in hemp plants. It’s not the same as THC, the compound that gives people a high, and it’s not a sedative. Instead, CBD helps people manage everyday stressors, and it supports a sense of calm and general wellbeing. This is so important if stress and your own racing mind are keeping you up at night.

 

By taking products that combine CBD and Melatonin, you are allowing each compound to do its best work.  The CBD helps you manage the stress of the day and calm your racing mind, and the melatonin works to support your natural sleep cycle.  Companies like Green Roads have launched entire collections of products that combine CBD and melatonin, and people across the country have found success with them. 

2. Rethink your reading material

Putting down blue light-emitting devices before bed is a good start. But also make sure anything else you read (or listen to or do) helps you relax, not rev you up. For example, consider saving thought-provoking articles, news podcasts and exciting mystery, action or adventure novels for earlier in the day or evening and keep bedtime reading material boring. And, while you’re at it, hide away everything else in your bedroom that either reminds you of your to-do list or provokes anything other than calm.

3. Exercise or go for a walk at some point during the day

Tons of research shows physical activity not only helps people fall asleep faster and sleep longer, it also reduces stress and anxiety that contribute to insomnia. The good news is that even simple walking or biking does the trick. A recent review of 14 studies in the European Journal of Physiotherapy actually found that moderate physical activity improved sleep quality better than a vigorous exercise routine.

4. Get your omega-3s

Omega-for-a-healthier-you

Fatty fish like salmon and sardines are rich in these essential fatty acids, which research has linked to both improved sleep and less stress and anxiety. One study, for example, found that when people began eating salmon three times a week, they slept better overall at night and functioned better during the day. Researchers believe it may have something to do with salmon’s omega-3s (and vitamin D), which helps regulate serotonin, a hormone important for sleep and mood.
