Sleep, it does a body, soul, and mind good

I can remember my mother saying, “go to sleep, everything will look better in the morning.” As a young girl, whether I believed her or not, everything did look better in the morning.

Now as a woman over 50, I tell myself go to sleep, “Rommy, YOU will look better in the morning.”  And, whether or not I totally believe myself, I generally do look better after a good night’s sleep. Not only is my appearance better, but my perspective, the way I see things is better. Everything really does look better after a good night’s sleep.

But, it’s not always easy to get a good night’s sleep. Sometimes, my mind just wont shut off, sometimes I wake up, over and over again. Then when it’s time to get up, my eyes want to stay shut. That’s when I know it is time to get back to good sleep habits.

Ayurveda, the Science of Life, provides with some truly wonderful, safe, non toxic sleep aids for beautiful radiant skin, vibrant outlook, and optimal wellness.
The art of caring for yourself before bed is very soothing to our central nervous systems. The art of cooking for ourselves sends a signal to our soul that we matter, we value our body, and we have a purpose.
You can improve your sleep by improving your nutrition, managing your screen time, and setting a schedule and sticking to it.
Try adding these six simple and highly effective steps to your regimen for 10 days.
  • An hour or 2 before bed, prepare for the next day. Set out your clothes, your purse and keys by the door. Look over your calendar for anything you may have forgotten.
  • Two hours before bed begin to dim the lights, turn off electronics, sit and watch the sun go down or listen to soothing, tranquil music. Do not watch the news or other violent troubling media.
  • If you experience chronic sleeplessness, adrenal fatigue, high stress, or are recovering from a long illness or surgery make yourself a rasayana, an Ayurvedic rejuvenative tonic. My favorite is Golden Milk.  Download the recipe below.
  • A hour before bed, take care of personal hygiene. Brush your teeth, scrape your tongue, wash your face and wash your feet if you are not showering. Hot baths should be taken at least 2 hours before bed to allow the body to calm.
  • Engage in pleasant conversation, journaling, meditation, or read a not too interesting book.
  • Do some simple yoga poses. Seated forward folds and gentle twists are wonderful for promoting sleep. Try this gentle yoga sequence, suitable for morning or night.
