Do you feel tired even before you get out of bed? Do you need an alarm clock to wake you up? Do you wake up in the middle of the night and can't sleep anymore, even though you are exhausted, and you lie in bed thinking about the few hours you slept and start to feel even more stressed?
Well... I have been through it all :) And for that reason I tried to find a "cure", because I didn't want to live in this state of despair and tiredness forever. And I can tell you that with a little personal "work" and diet, it is possible to change! It is possible to sleep through the night (in a row), wake up feeling refreshed and full of desire to do part of what the day has to offer.
Here are some tips on everything I've done to throw that exhaustion far away from me:
We need to start in the bedroomWe have to start with the bedroom, because that's where the magic of sleep happens. Keep your bedroom a "clean" area of electronic stuff. I imagine that if you read this blog you must have a more open conscience for everything natural and you should not have a TV in your room, being that it is one of the worst things you can do to both your sleep rhythm and your hormonal system. Try to think (or visualize) that all the magnetic waves going around in the atmosphere affect your well being and health, and since it is difficult to control that factor during the day, try to bar those energies at night as much as possible! Television or browsing on your phone before bedtime is extremely stimulating to both your energy and your retina, and can cause you to not be able to fall asleep as quickly as you would like. What I do is turn off the wi-fi before we go to bed. That way the house stays clean during the night. No computers before bed and no computers in the bedroom.
Try putting your phone on flight mode or off. Don't charge your cell phone near the bed and remove everything that has lights and can flash while you are sleeping (clock, radio, etc.). Sleep is an act of regeneration and recovery of the body. It is very important that you are able to really rest. And this process may involve having good cotton sheets, comfortable clothes made of natural fabrics (everything that comes in contact with our skin affects it, as it is our largest organ. The body needs to breathe and nothing is worse than synthetic fabrics, no matter how beautiful they may be). If you can, always opt for organic cotton or linen.
When you wake upWhen you wake up, eat according to your body's rhythms. THIS MEANS that you should eat only when you are hungry and not because you have to. It sounds ridiculous, but many of us are on autopilot and eat because we think we should. Start by drinking one or more glasses of water at room temperature with 4 pipettes full of DETOX DROPS to deeply hydrate and fill the body with a dose of "greens" that help not only with the metabolism but also to calm inflammation and strengthen the immune system. Since you have been sleeping and your body is most likely dehydrated, sometimes hunger is simply a sign that you are thirsty. If you are hungry after that, it is a good time to consume good fats e protein - because this is exactly what your body needs as "fuel" for the day.Shakes are a great way to get both. When I felt extremely tired, I would take Super Femininewhich is specifically formulated to balance the hormonal system (you can find out if yours is balanced here) and provide the body with everything it needs in one place - herbal remedies for stress and anxiety, 4 types of plant protein, natural collagensoluble fiber, daily dose of greens, omega-3s... and the list goes on!
It may seem obvious to say that stress has a huge impact on our energy levels and how we feel throughout the day, but really this is a key factor in reducing fatigue. Of course, with the world we live in it becomes very difficult (or even almost impossible) to control the levels of stress we are exposed to. But what we can and should control is the way our body reacts to that stress! I have formulated SUPER WOMAN capsules capsules with medicinal plants that will protect a woman's body but in a way that is as easy as possible to add to your morning routine. First thing in the morning, with your breakfast or "that" glass of water, just take 2 capsules to energize and enhance longevity. Aument the body's ability to deal with stress and anxiety, while also having anti-aging effects. The perfect antidote for anyone who feels exhausted!
If you want to know more in depth how and why this natural supplement works so well, just take a look at this post.
Try stretching your body. Anyone who follows me knows that I really like Tara Stiles. Her videos are super effective. Try this type of yoga restorative. It helps to calm the mind and relieve the stress and tension accumulated in the body during the day. And it doesn't have to take long - it can be as little as 5 minutes and you'll find that you feel much better.
Give yourself a self-massage. Who wouldn't want to get a massage on a daily basis? (I do!). But since it is difficult to find the time to travel and go to a massage center, you can do it yourself - you can see how to do this massage and also work your muscles and do a lymphatic drainage here.
You can also choose to spend a few minutes relaxing the facial tension of the day and work on the elasticity of the skin with a gua sha massage and your favorite serum. If you want to know more about the various types of massage for a natural facelift, you can read here.
