Sleep is one of the most essential needs for good health. Without it, all our body’s functions and systems are thrown out of whack. Feelings of overwhelming tiredness are a sign that we aren’t sleeping well or are not sleeping enough. According to Consumer Reports magazine, 27 percent of adults had trouble falling asleep, or staying asleep. That’s ¼ of the adults in the US! Sometimes we get in our own way when it comes to getting good rest. Here’s why sleep is important, what can cause sleep loss and some tips for ways to get better sleep with CBD.
A proper amount of sleep each night is crucial because our bodies go into a state of rest and repair. Muscle tissue is rebuilt, and any injuries go into a state of ultra-repair mode. Sleep is so vital to repairing our bodies that it is a big reason why doctors put injured patients in an induced coma. Sleep is also essential to your brain 's ability to learn and remember. Our brains are firing non-stop, all day, every day so when your body rests, your brain is busy processing information from the day and forming memories. That is one of the reasons why we dream.
Have you ever tried to go to bed but you can’t sleep because you can’t shut your thoughts off? From outstanding tasks at work, to a list of worries that make you anxious –racing thoughts at bedtime are common. Fortunately, there are some ways to help control them. Write down your to-do list to help prevent you from thinking about what you need to get done late at night. Understand that there is nothing you can do in the middle of the night and remind yourself that a good night’s sleep is the most effective thing you can do to help finish your tasks or solve your problems the next day.
Another cause of losing sleep is not feeling tired, despite it being time for bed. The more you wait to fall asleep, the less tired you get and the later the night gets. A big reason for not feeling tired when you need to sleep (aside from sleep disorders) is too much screen time before bed. Screens emit blue light, which is responsible for your sleep/wake cycle, and can keep you awake and alert. Try turning off all screens an hour before bed to help your brain wind down for the night.
Researchers believe CBD helps slow the breakdown of the endocannabinoids your body produces to regulate your sleep/wake cycle. That’s why CBD sleep supplements are a great option to consider for tackling those sleepless nights. We recommend you try rubbing New Phase Blends Soothe CBD Balm on the back of your neck and behind your ears as you start to wind down for the evening to help you destress and relax. Then cap off your night with New Phase Blends Sleep Tincture with Melatonin. This CBD oil tincture utilizes a patent-pending mixture of melatonin and CBD-rich hemp extract to create a natural sleep aid that helps you fall asleep and stay asleep.
Please note that while CBD sleep supplements can be helpful to add to your nighttime regimen, usage should not replace identifying any underlying issues that are responsible for sleep difficulties. If you are tired of lying awake at night, then CBD for sleep may just be what you need.
