We are starting something NEW. The last email of the month will be focused on self-care. We will pick a topic around taking better care of YOU and talk about it, share resources, etc.
Are you ready?
Here’s our first topic…
Have you ever noticed that some mornings you wake up more refreshed than others - even when you feel like you slept all night?
Getting better quality sleep has been part of our wellness journey. Between having kid-assisted, disturbed sleep for a few years and then hormonal-challenged sleep and stress mixed in at certain times, sleep has not been easy, especially for Natalie and Laura.
But sleep is crucial for our wellness. When we get into deep sleep, our bodies have the time to regenerate - literally. It’s when our cells get attention and our immune system steps into high-gear. It’s also when we can recoup our mental health.
We need that deeper sleep to be fully ourselves as well as just energized.
And we want to help you get it!
3 extra tips for better sleep:
Technology: The blue light in our computer/phone screens are known for over-stimulating our brains making it harder to sleep. Give yourself a 60-90 min break from screens before you go to bed.
Don’t eat too late: Try to give your digestion at least 3 hours before you go to bed. It’s easier to sleep when you aren’t too full.
Caffeine: Pay attention to the effect of caffeine on your sleep. If you consume it, track how late you can drink it and still get a good night’s sleep so you can be more aware.
YL Product Spotlight
Products that can help us sleep that you may not even know about…
SleepEssence combines Lavender, Vetiver, Valerian, and Ruta essential oils with the hormone melatonin—a well-known sleep aid—for a natural way to enable a full night's rest.
From Laura & Natalie: We use this one when we have a few nights of poor sleep. It helps break the cycle. The dosage is 2 softgels. Try 1 and see how you do. Use 2 if you need it and then cut back. We find 7-10 days is all we need to break the cycle.
Specially formulated for children to help promote a calm and relaxed state, reduce restlessness, and improve focus and mental clarity at home and in the classroom/office - but adults can use it, too…we all do!
From all of us: This product takes the edge off when stress is high. It contains 3 well-known ingredients the help with relaxation: L-theanine, 5-HTP, and magnesium. You might want to google more about them.
