Top tips for a great nights sleep taken from Matt Walker’s Ted Talk
My clients come to me for three main reasons; sleep challenges, anxiety & no life purpose.
Your late nights and early mornings have way more consequences for your health and memory than you think.
Did you know if you only get 6 hours sleep a night, for just one week, it has an affect on your genes?
Studies show a sizeable distortion in over 700 gene activity caused by lack of sleep
Half of the genes increased in their activity (associated with tumor growth, long term chronic inflammation, stress & cardiovascular disease)
Clients ask me how do I get a better nights sleep?
It’s a delicate Balance;
Only use the bedroom for sleep
No electronics in the bedroom
I wear a sleep mask to block out any light sources
I put 2 drops each of Lavender & Jasmine oil in my bath 90mins before bed
I drink Pukka Cacao Maca Latte Magic made with cashew nut milk & take2 x serenity capsules.
I diffuse breathe blend in my bedroom before sleep
Go to bed at same time every single day no matter what (For me it’s 10pm as I rise at 5.45 naturally)
Keep your bedroom cool (around 18 degrees)
Get regular distance or hands on Reiki treatments to balance too energy and help you sleep better. My clients personal feedback is that 90mins of Reiki is the equivalent to 4/6hours sleep. You can find out more here.
