Alternative Medicine - - Health News & Tips -

Adults who sleep fewer than eight hours each night are more likely to re­port symp­toms of stress. Here are three rea­sons to rest well, re­set your health, and bal­ance over­all well­ness.

The stress-sleep cy­cle—a lack of the right amount and qual­ity of sleep means more stress on our bod­ies and minds, re­sult­ing in de­creased mus­cle re­pair and mem­ory con­sol­i­da­tion, poor judg­ment and mood, and even long-term health prob­lems such as a weak­ened im­mune sys­tem and high blood pres­sure.

Pam­per your­self—sup­ple­ment sleep with a mas­sage to re­lax tense mus­cles, im­prove cir­cu­la­tion, re­duce pain, and calm an anx­ious mind.

Sip on sooth­ing teas—Herbal teas like chamomile, lemon, and holy basil are tra­di­tion­ally used to pro­mote re­lax­ation, whereas oth­ers like pas­sion­flower or va­le­rian en­cour­age rest­ful sleep. Source: Twin­lab
