3 Simple Ways to Sleep Better – Tonight!

ARTICLE BY | Julie Hoerth

If you find yourself tossing and turning at night, you’re not alone. Turns out, America is one tired nation. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than one-third of Americans aren’t getting enough quality sleep.

What happens if you skimp on sleep? Lack of quality rest does more than just leave you moody, unmotivated, and exhausted. It’s a leading factor in a variety of health conditions, plus makes you more likely to make mistakes, zaps your sex drive, and even contributes to weight gain.

The tricky part is that sleep can be hard to come by, especially as you age. Even if you go to bed at a decent time, you may have trouble falling or staying asleep due to occasional stress or anxiety.* If you sometimes find yourself feeling sleep-deprived, chances are you’ve tried the basics—blackout curtains in your bedroom, a soothing bath before bedtime, maybe even some over-the-counter sleep aids. However, the three suggestions below might not have been on your radar, but may be exactly what you need to finally get some quality shut-eye!

#1—Relax with AnxioCalm®
Ever find your mind swirling with thoughts that keep you wide awake when you’d rather be drifting off to dreamland? AnxioCalm is an amazingly effective solution for people who can’t seem to “turn off their thoughts” at night to fall asleep. This popular stress-relieving formula doesn’t actually make you feel sleepy or drowsy, though. (It’s great for day-time stress relief, too.) Instead, AnxioCalm targets the receptors in your brain that calm your nerves and relieve occasional stress and anxiety.*† Take it 20 minutes before bed to ease your worries, “turn off” mental chatter, and drift peacefully to sleep.*

#2—Get a Solid Night’s Sleep with Terrific Zzzz®*
Terrific Zzzz is a gentle combination of calming herbs including lemon balm, lavender, mandarin, and ravintsara. Taken 30 minutes before bedtime, this supplement can help you fall asleep quickly and feel rested and renewed by the time your alarm awakens you to the start of a new day. Terrific Zzzz is also non-habit forming and won’t leave you feeling groggy in the morning! It works with your body’s own sleep cycles so you can finally get the rest you need.*††

#3—Turn off the Screens
Seriously. Reality check: you’re staring at your smartphone more than you want to admit. You’re far from alone, but remember that just because everyone else is doing it certainly doesn’t make it any healthier. Research has shown that staring at the cool blue and white glow of phones, tablets, and other technological devices lowers the body’s production of important sleep-regulating hormones. Basically, it messes with your internal clock, sending signals to your brain that it isn’t time to go to sleep yet, and makes falling and staying asleep difficult. Take a break from screens for at least two hours before bedtime for a better night’s rest.

Try these three simple steps tonight, and sleep tight!
