Sleep is one of the most important bodily functions. In fact is the only one that replaces some of the hormones we use during the day and enables us to process all the new information we come across daily.
Sleep plays a major role in energy conservation, healing, fertility, metabolism, mental wellbeing, good memory and learning. The problem is that most people either do not get enough sleep or the quality is poor.
The impact of this resonates negatively not only on your health but in every aspect of one’s life because it affects your concentration, focus and moods during the day. Some common warning signs of sleep deprivation include: poor motivation, feeling sleepy during the day, increased craving for sugar, nicotine, alcohol and coffee, irritability, depression, anxiety and headaches to name a few.
Hormonal imbalances causes restlessness and lack of quality sleep.
Sleep is such an important part of your fertility journey. It needs to be good! It needs to be in a clean room, free of electronics.
Make a few changes in the bedroom. moved your phone chargers away from the bed so you aren’t tempted to get on them, declutter your bedside tables, and so you are no longer going to turn the TV on when you go to bed. try and “shut down” half hour before sleeping. try meditation and some relaxation and breathing techniques and make sure to wake up and go to bed at the same times.
Be more badass:
For the your phones, remove the chargers from your room completely. Having them charge is worse than just having them on. If using for alarms ensure in flight mode and 2-3m away from the bed. Maybe remove the tv too if it presents temptation?
Studies show that the best time to exercise if you want to sleep well at night is in the morning. Exercising in the later part of the day (less than 6 hours before bed) can disrupt sleep. So schedule in your daily exercise for at least 40 minutes before work or during lunch time.
make your bedrooms a sleep (and sex 😉) haven and make that a commitment.
Try meditation for assisting with sleep, create a nighttime ritual so your body knows it’s sleep time.
