Clean Sleeping: Biggest Health Trend of The Year
Could the biggest eating trend of 2016 really turn things around in the bedroom? Some people believe that a clean lifestyle can lead to better sleep, but how does clean eating lead to a great night of 8 hours. We compiled some convincing evidence for you when it comes to ‘clean sleeping’ and you might just want to think about making a few lifestyle changes!
So What Is This Clean Sleeping Thing All About?
According to Yahoo, “Gwyneth Paltrow, creator of Goop, partner with with the organic, all- natural cosmetics and skin care label Juice Beauty, and sometime actress, has written an article for the Daily Mail on the precise benefits of getting your full eight hours.”
“The lifestyle I lead is based not just on clean eating, but also on clean sleeping: at least seven or eight hours of good, quality sleep. Sleep plays such a powerful role in determining your appetite and energy levels that I believe it should be your first priority — even before you think about your diet,” Paltrow wrote in the Daily Mail.
The reason for a good night’s sleep: your body needs time to detoxify and repair over night. That’s what those 7 to 9 hours are for! People who get less than that tend to lead a life full of anxiety and stress. Those two things combined can lead to overeating and making unhealthy choices in general - especially when it comes to food. “Tiredness can cause stress, which in turn stimulates cortisol and insulin - the hormones that trigger your body to store fat,” according to nutritional scientist Dr. Laura Lefkowitz.
So How Do You Clean Sleep?
Change Your Daily Routine: Getting yourself on an actual schedule could help you sleep better! You want to make sure that you get 7 to 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep. That mean, no TV, no noise, no getting up five times a night. Pure, honest sleep is often best achieved with your bedding.
Go for Clean Sheets! Quite often you wake up at various times during the night because of getting night sweats or chills. The best way to keep your sleep truly clean is to go for some sweet sheets that regulate your individual spike in body temperature and keep you cool and clean all night long. Try NuSleep technology bedding. While some people recommend a metal pillow, we recommend comfort.
Avoid eating late at night! As far as Dr. Laura Lefkowitz is concerned, Late night eating “disturbs your digestive system and stops it from working as effectively as it should. Ideally, you should have a 12-hour gap from eating over the night - dinner at 7 p.m., breakfast at 7 a.m. If you do have to eat late, the number one rule is to avoid sugar.”
Last but not least, make some clean changes in your lifestyle when it comes to food and exercise. We know you’ve heard it a million times, but when you feel great and have a lot of ‘get up and go’ in the morning, you’re more likely to get a good night’s sleep.
The more happy you are in these areas of life, the more happy you will be when you drift off to sweet dreams - Happy sleeping!
