If you wake up in the morning feeling more exhausted than when you went to bed, you’ll know that waking up in general can sometimes be the hardest struggle we face in a day.
Our bodies require the eight hours of sleep specified so that we can recharge the energy we lost throughout the day. The majority of us turn to caffeine when we feel fatigued, but this isn’t the answer. That’s because it only gives us a short burst of energy – meaning we only feel the effects temporarily and end up feeling worse in the long run. It’s basically a vicious circle.
Therefore, if you want to improve your sleeping patterns and want to wake up feeling energized, you should avoid caffeine and aim for at least eight hours of sleep a night. While you’re at it, you should probably avoid excessive screen time before you jump into bed too. You want to relax your brain in the evening, not keep it fully active.
Got it? Good. The time has come to talk natural remedies.
One effective natural remedy you can use to solve your sleeping issues revolves around a secret ingredient: Himalayan sea salt. Have you heard of it? Basically the salt helps to regulate your melatonin levels – the hormone that helps control your sleep and wake cycles. These levels tend to rise in the late evening and remain high throughout the night, then in the early hours of the morning they drop.
Preparing this secret concoction is simple, all you need is TWO ingredients:
– 1 tablespoon of pink Himalayan sea salt
– 5 teaspoons of organic raw honey
OK so now you have the two secret components, all you need to do is mix them together and place a teaspoon of it under your tongue before you hop into bed. I gave it a whirl myself and I must say that the results were pretty remarkable. Give it a try and let us know if it works for you.
