Do you have good sleep hygiene?

Do you have good sleep hygiene?

Meredith here- today I wanted to talk about some herbal remedies for sleep.

We all know that sleep is important for so many reasons but did you know the following?

  • Sleep can help you lose weight.

    The Canadian Medical Association Journal stated that the study they did in 2012 included this statement to be true. The Canadian Obesity Board has included adequate sleep (at least 6 hours) in its new set of obesity management tools for physicians.
  • Adequate sleep can help lower your blood pressure.

    Sheldon G. Shelps, MD from Mayo Clinic states that it is a possibility that sleeping fewer than 6 hours a night could be linked to increased blood pressure.
  • Adequate sleep helps your relationship.

    Want to hit your partner in the head with a frying pan? It may not be hormones ladies, it may simply be sleep. In Psychology Today, Theresa E. DiDonato, PhD quoted researchers Troxel, Robels, Hall and Byres from 2007 that did a study giving evidence that spouses with fewer sleep problems tend to be happier. OMG!

So the million dollar question: How do you sleep? How do you shut off?

Quick Tip

Get into a routine every night that includes shutting off your tech. I know it's hard, but put that phone/tablet/remote down!

A half hour before bed, drink a cup of tea like our Sleepy Fairy Tea that has herbs of Chamomile, Valerian, Passionflower and Hops to give you a good night sleep without the “sleep hangover” you get from some of the over the counter meds.

For an even extra dose of relaxation, rub some of our All-Natural Sleep Cream along your inner arms and thighs and the nape of your neck. This cream has been perfected from over 30 + case studies in Florida and has great success in helping you fall and stay asleep.

Keep your eyes peeled for my making a sleep tea webinar. I've been excited to create one and will send details along as soon as it's all finished.

At Faeve, we want you to be well and be your best self. Naturally. Originally. Scientifically.

#8 Recipes and Ramblings: Shake It Cause You Got It Blend

In 2019, I was awarded Business Woman of the Year from my local Chamber of Commerce. I wasn't really expecting it, but I was excited and nervous. I am someone that is more comfortable working in the background then in the forefront. So, when I found out I would have to go in front of a group of people to accept this award, I freaked!

Botanical Oracle: Rowan, Sorbus torminalis
Botanical Oracle: Rowan, Sorbus torminalis

Rowan, otherwise known as mountain ash, is a descendant of the rose family. The fruit of the tree is similar to dates and can be used fresh a variety of ways. There is not a lot of medicinal information on this plant as it’s not typically used in herbal medicine, but it is used a lot as a building material. 

These trees and shrubs offer birds, insects, and some mammals a great deal of food because their harvests are so plentiful.

#7 Recipes and Ramblings: Solitude Meditation Blend

There are pure blends in this series that will touch upon self-reflection and meditation. I believe that in order to be our best selves, we need time to get to know ourselves.

I have a friend from college that I hadn't seen in almost 10 years. The person that she was to me in college, was not the person that I had lunch with. To say that she had changed is an understatement. As my brother would say, she did a 180.
