If you’ve tried out a whole bunch of detox hacks only to end up feeling depleted and weak… you’re probably thinking something along the lines of “I wish I could just detox in my sleep and be done with it”. Well, we’ve got good news: you can!
We sure got busy with juices, weird diet choices and calorie restrictions, but the solution might have been right under our noses all along: sleep detox. The 100% natural, no-fuss way to detox.
Sleep detox isn’t a fad. It’s just the body’s natural way of getting rid of all the nasties while you’re resting. The entire philosophy behind it is that you take steps to improve your lifestyle and your snooze time. When you sleep like a baby, the liver does its job at full capacity and you feel great the next day.
Here’s what you need to do to reset your body with sleep detox!
Tips for healthy sleeping habits
When we talk about sleep detox, we need to keep in mind the importance of listening to our body clock - and, if it’s out of whack, tweaking it!
Most of us live hectic lives and end up shifting our sleep patterns, thus making it impossible for our bodies to recover and reboot overnight. If the liver’s metabolic clock is affected by our sleeping habits, our natural detox process is disturbed. No wonder we not only feel out of sync but also bloated and heavy throughout the day!
Luckily, there are a few simple steps you can take to reset your body clock to its original healthy state:
- Go to bed and get up at the same times each day;
- Get sun exposure early in the morning so that your body knows it’s rise-and-shine time;
- Stay away from electronic devices for at least 2 hours before bed (the blue light can affect your circadian rhythm);
- Take a hot bath before bed;
- Turn the bedroom into a sleep sanctuary (only ever use it for sleeping)
- Develop a downtime ritual in the evening. Relax with a book and a nice cuppa.
Besides proper sleep hygiene, you need to be kind to your body and make sure you eat nutritious foods that fuel it throughout the day without putting the liver in overdrive at night. You probably already know the spiel: eat lots of fresh veggies, lean meats, nuts, seeds and fiber-rich foods.
It might also help to reap the powerful benefits of herbal teas. Here are two teas that will help you with your sleep detox.
Sip your way to sweet dreams with Native Relaxation
The secret ingredient in this best-selling tea is jilungin, a native plant traditionally used by Indigenous communities to create a state of calm and induce deep sleep.
We source this plant from the Nyul Nyul community and have received generous guidance on how to use it from Bruno Dann, the community’s Elder. He also told us how, when he was a child, his parents would give him jilungin brew in the evening. Before long, he’d fall into a deep, restful sleep.
This one-of-a-kind tea is perfect for your evening ritual - just ask any of the hundreds of people who have left us 5-star reviews for this blend, after experiencing better sleep and a more relaxed state of mind before bedtime.
