Learn Which Sleep Spray Is Best for You
With the new year brings the motivation to create healthier versions of ourselves. Even though we are wonderful just as we are, there is always room to add healthy habits to our daily routines. But before setting intentions for the upcoming year, it's important to take a look at the core of our wellbeing — restful sleep. How you sleep each night will affect your mental and physical health each day and in the long term. You can't improve your athletic abilities, relationships, or eating habits until you improve your sleep quality.
With 35% of Americans sleeping less than 7 hours per night, getting a better night's rest should be a resolution we all get behind in 2022. Read on to learn the benefits of improving your slumber and the best sleep sprays to help you fall asleep faster.
The benefits of a good night's sleep
Even the healthiest among us have had a poor night's sleep and felt the repercussions the next day. You know the feeling — when even the easiest tasks feel practically impossible. But studies show that a loss of even one to two hours of sleep can affect your reasoning levels, mood, and productivity. Is it possible that a few more hours of shut-eye could remedy a mysterious health issue in our lives? There is certainly a chance.
Like our brains, sleep is essential for the proper function of every tissue in our bodies. Sleep expert Dr. Michael Twery explains, "It affects growth and stress hormones, our immune system, appetite, breathing, blood pressure and cardiovascular health."
Let's not forget that vacation glow we all get after some time off work. It could be from the extra sunshine, but likely your glowing skin is a product of more sleep and relaxation — the ultimate beauty secret.
There's clearly no denying that prioritizing our sleep is critical for both mental and physical health, but how do we achieve that sought-after slumber?
Find deep sleep with an oral spray
There are so many demands placed on us throughout the day that when it's time to rest our heads at night, our minds and bodies remain wired. Sometimes we need a little assistance calming our senses after a busy day of work, kids, and errands — and that's perfectly okay. Thankfully, there are dietary supplements that naturally help you transition out of fight or flight mode and into a restful mindset.
There are several key ingredients found in nature you should look for in an oral sleep spray. The first is melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone produced by the body in response to darkness. Since the light from electronic screens blocks the production of melatonin, it only makes sense why so many of us have trouble sleeping.
Certain amino acids can also improve sleep quality. Not naturally produced in the body, L-tryptophan is considered an "essential" amino acid because it is critical to good health. Supplements that include L-tryptophan convert into important sleep-inducing molecules, like serotonin and melatonin. Other naturally occurring amino acids that encourage relaxation are GABA and L-theanine.
Our Sleeping Beauty Slumber Oral Spray includes the ingredients mentioned above and even more adaptogens and ancient herbs. Ashwagandha, an adaptogen that’s best taken over time, has been found to help people fall asleep faster, stay asleep, and experience a deeper rest. You’ll also find valerian root, an ancient herb used for insomnia that dates back to ancient Greek and Roman times. Since you can easily control your dosing, this is the perfect sleep spray for those with both intense sleep issues or people just looking to relax in the evening.
Fall asleep faster with a pillow spray
Do you ever follow all the motions in your sleep routine but still find your mind, and maybe even your heart, still racing as if it were the middle of the day? If stress follows you into the bedroom every night, then a pillow spray may be for you.
Pillow sprays use aromatherapy to tap into your senses and naturally assist you in relaxation. The best pure essential oils to look for in your spray are Sage, Rose, and Petitgrain, all of which will provide a feeling of calm and a sense of well-being.
It's not just the ingredients in your sleep spray that matter but also how you use it. Incorporating simple meditation practices will encourage the soothing blend to work even better. As you inhale the gentle aromas, adding deep breathing will lower your heart rate and help you fall asleep faster. Try breathing in slowly through your nose until you fill your lungs and your abdomen expands. Then release your breath slowly through your mouth.
Our Sleeping Beauty Tranquility Pillow Spray can be misted onto your pillow or used as a room spray. Whichever way you decide to mist, the gentle aromas will guide your mind and body into a deep and restful sleep.
