Sleep has to be the single most important part of our day, so why is it that we seem to neglect it so much? Whether it’s just “one more drink” or “one more episode” we seem to be putting an increasing number of tasks, ahead of what should be our number one priority. Getting a good nights sleep isn’t just about waking up refreshed and feeling ready to face the day. Getting enough sleep actually ensures our bodies are able to function properly. If you rarely wake up feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed, try out these two ingredients which will ensure you get a good nights sleep.
Getting a good nights sleep is easier said than done. When you have a dozen things to worry about- your job, your relationship, your finances- it can be difficult to shut your brain off and rest your head.
It’s estimated than over 40 million adults suffer from a sleep disorder, and over half of all adults suffer report having sleep problems a few nights a week or more. The recommended amount of sleep was recently decreased from 6-7 hours, from 8 hours, but almost ¾ of young adults admit to not reaching this target.
If you are one of the majority that struggle to get enough sleep, keep reading because these two ingredients could change that for the better!
Simply mix 5 teaspoons of organic honey with one teaspoon of Himalayan pink salt. Don’t panic though, you won’t have to visit Asia to find the salt, you can grab it from B&M for just £1.99! When you are ready to fall asleep, simply place the mixture under your tongue and let it dissolve.
The reason these two ingredients work wonders together is because, when combined, the salt and honey works to increase serotonin production, which induces feelings of relaxation and well-being. This helps our body to relax and transition into a peaceful sleep.
