Celebrate World Sleep Day With Quality Zzz’s

Celebrate World Sleep Day With Quality Zzz’s

The annual event World Sleep Day is this Friday the 18th of March and surprisingly this day isn’t only an excuse to put your pj’s on and stay in bed all day. It's also a call to action on the importance of sleep focusing on issues related to it such as medicine, driving and education.

This year’s slogan is Quality Sleep, Sound Mind, Happy World, which highlights the affect sleep has on your mental health, and how quality rest can help maintain a positive wellbeing and improve your mood.

What Is World Sleep Day?

For many, World Sleep Day passes them by each year without them ever knowing it happened, but this celebration of sleep is not to be missed as it can provide you with many helpful resources and tips to achieve a healthy slumber. 

This annual awareness event was created by a group of healthcare providers and other members of the medical community who were studying and working in sleep medicine and research. It was started as a way to bring sleep healthcare providers together to discuss sleep information worldwide.

How To Celebrate

To honour the intention of World Sleep Day, the best way you can celebrate is by getting a good night’s rest. We’ve gathered some tried-and-true tips to help you get some much needed zzz’s, hopefully improving the quality and health of your sleep.

Avoid caffeine and alcohol

When you consume caffeine late in the day, it stimulates your nervous system and can stop your body from naturally relaxing at night. So if you’re craving a cup of coffee in the evenings, try switching to tea. The Love Beauty Foods Sleep Wellness Tea is a herbal tea that promotes restorative sleep. The tea is laden with relaxing herbs such as the honeyed, crisp taste of chamomile, an antioxidant known to calm restlessness.

And for alcohol, it is known to cause or increase the symptoms of snoring and sleep apnea. By having a couple of drinks at night, you are negatively affecting your sleep and hormones.

Turn off devices

The blue light that is emitted from your phone can keep you up at night, cutting into your sleep time. We know it’s not fun, but putting your phone and other devices away two hours before bedtime can really help with sleep health. To make it easier, start off with one night a week and see if you can up your frequency. 

Stick to a schedule

Be consistent with your sleeping patterns as it can help with long-term sleep quality. Try getting into the habit of waking up and going to bed at similar times. Soon enough you won’t even need an alarm.

Try essential oils

Essential oils are very effective in helping you sleep with scents such as lavender reporting to increase the amount of deep sleep you can experience. The Oil Garden Sleep Assist Oil soothes you to sleep with sweet orange, lavender and Marjoram and German chamomile. This oil can be used in a diffuser and as a massage oil.

Meditate 

Meditation is great for relieving anxiety stress and fatigue, making it a perfect addition to your bedtime routine. Even just practicing five minutes of meditation before you settle down to sleep can be beneficial.

Use a weighted blanket

The comforting pressure from a weighted blanket can prepare your body for rest by calming your breathing and heart rate, helping you to relax enough to fall asleep. The Beautifully Healthy Weighted Blanket uses the deep touch pressure stimulation technique to treat stress and sleeplessness, improving your quality of sleep.
