MAY IS BETTER SLEEP MONTH!
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
