Tired of feeling tired? A good night’s sleep is just as important as regular exercise and a healthy diet. Read on to learn the signs of lack of sleep, what could be causing your poor sleep quality, and how to improve it with CBD.

When we talk about self care, we mainly talk about the actions you can take to maintain and improve your health and wellbeing. What we eat, how much water we drink, the exercise we get and the quality of our sleep are all fundamental parts of our wellbeing.

One of the most important things you can do for yourself, in terms of self care, is sleep. Sleep is a crucial aspect in every human’s life. Without it, we would not be able to do our normal day to day functions. Poor sleep quality can impair your focusworsen your mood, and is even linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Here’s a look at why sleep is an important part of your self care routine and how CBD can help.

How Sleep Works

CBD for sleep

The entirety of sleep has been a complex concept for a long time. There are many chemicals that are at play when our body is trying to sleep. To understand this, we first need to understand the process of how sleep works and how our body regulates sleep.

Numerous chemicals and hormones are involved in the sleep-wake homeostasis process and the circadian alerting system. Sleep-Wake homeostasis is the energy that gets us up in the morning and gets us tired at night in order to sleep and recharge. Shifting between wakefulness and sleep creates changes in thousands of neurons in the brain and a complex signaling system that generates specific reactions in the body. 

Adenosine is the hormone that plays a central role in the sleep-wake process. This hormone builds up when we’re awake and increases sleep pressure. Neurotransmitters will then send signals within the nervous system to activate or deactivate certain cells一this is another factor in what gets us up and makes us sleep. The body regulates sleep with two key drivers: sleep-wake homeostasis and the circadian alerting system.

  • Sleep-wake Homeostasis: As mentioned above is what gets us up and makes us sleep. This is because of the homeostatic sleep drive, the body’s self-regulating system where pressure to sleep builds up based on how long you’ve been awake. This same drive causes you to sleep longer or more deeply after a period of insufficient sleep.
  • The Circadian Alerting System: Is your body’s biological clock, circadian rhythms last 24 hours and play a central role in numerous biological processes, the biggest being sleep. Light exposure is the biggest influence on circadian rhythms, encouraging wakefulness during the day and sleepiness at night.

Why is Sleep So Important?

Sleep has been a biological part of our lives since the beginning of time. If you look at it from an evolutionary perspective, the fact that sleep exists in animal species is a strong indication that it is absolutely fundamental to our well being. You might not realize it, but the amount and quality of sleep you get each night can impact the way your immune system functions, your mood and more.

In humans, sleep is critical to both physical and mental development in babies, children, and young adults. In adults, a lack of sleep has been associated with a wide range of negative health consequences including:

  • Cardiovascular problems.
  • Weakened immune system.
  • Higher risk of obesity as well as Type II diabetes.
  • Impaired thinking and memory.
  • Mental health problems, the most common being depression and anxiety.

Signs Your Sleep Quality Needs To Improve

If you think you’re getting poor sleep, consider whether you possess any of these tell-tale signs:

  • You take more than 30 minutes to fall asleep after you get into bed.
  • You regularly wake up more than once per night.
  • You lie awake for more than 20 minutes when you wake up in the middle of the night.
  • You spend less than 85 percent of your time in bed asleep.
  • You feel tired and have difficulty concentrating during the day. You may be drinking more caffeine to stay alert.
  • Your skin is breaking out and your eyes are puffy, red, or developing dark circles or bags.
  • You feel hungry more often, especially for junk food, and gaining weight.
  • You feel more stressed out, emotionally exhausted, and angrier than usual.
  • You’ve been diagnosed with insomnia.

How To Get Better Sleep With CBD

There are many factors in why people are unable to achieve a good night’s sleep. For some it could be that their internal clock is out of whack, or it could be the unhealthy diet you’ve grown used to. If you’ve been struggling to get a good night’s rest or looking to make sleep your number 1 self-care priority look no further. Here are a couple products you can try along with some tips on how to increase the quality of your sleep.

  • Create a Sleep Routine

It is important for your circadian rhythm, the natural process your body goes through to regulate your sleep and wake cycle. Have a wake-up time, a wind-down time and a set bedtime. This means waking up at a fixed time every day, winding down or getting ready for bed, and having a set time you want to fall asleep. What better way to begin the wind-down process for the day than with a bath?

For prime results, pour bath bomb powder into a drawn warm bath and soak for 10+ minutes. *This product can also be used for a foot soak. Adults can use 1 Cup of powder per bath.

  • Practice good sleep hygiene

This means using your bed for sleep and sleep only. Try to avoid sitting or lounging in your bed when it’s not bedtime. If you have a TV in your bedroom, move it to another room in your house. It can also be a hard habit to break if you’ve become accustomed to working from home in your bed. If you’re tempted to look at your phone or devices before bed, simply leave them on the other side of the room when it’s time to turn in. Right before you’re about to jump into bed, try adding a couple drops of our CBD oil into a glass of water. Your body will thank you in the morning!

  • Exercise

Physical activity can make you tired and help you sleep well. Walking, stretching and relaxing before bed can help ensure you get a good night’s sleep. That’s because it helps regulate your circadian rhythm so your body stays on a regulated schedule. It’s important to make sure you do any exercise one to two hours before bedtime, to give your mind and body time to wind down after your workout is complete. Exercise creates endorphins, which can keep you awake and make it difficult to fall asleep.

For optimal sleep reinforcements try: Gold Buckle Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture – 4000mg $159.00 — or $159.00 $127.20 / month

  • Eat A Well Balanced Diet

You’ve probably heard the saying, “You are what you eat!” at least a couple times in your life, but when it comes to your diet and sleep, studies have shown it really does matter what you eat throughout the day. Try to avoid sugary snacks or drinks before bed, including alcohol or anything with caffeine. If you need a snack before bed, choose something small and packed with protein, such as nuts, cheese or hummus.

For optimal sleep reinforcements try adding this to your evening food or beverage: Isolate CBD Oil Tincture – 1000mg $59.00 — or $59.00 $47.20 / month
