Are you tired of… being tired all the time? You’re not alone. Most of us are living hectic lives, with little time to stop and smell the roses. Our bodies are constantly trying to keep up with our unhealthy habits, like eating on the go and choosing comfort food over healthy food.
Add poor sleep to that equation and you get a recipe for gut disaster.
The good news is that you can turn things around quite easily, by treating yourself to the perfect detox sleep routine! Just add these 3 simple wellness hacks to your evening ritual and give your body the chance to rejuvenate from within.
A cup of detox tea after dinner, to help digestion
First of all, when we say “dinner”, we mean a light, healthy meal. When it comes to getting more restful sleep, one of the top recommendations from specialists is to avoid heavy foods and massive servings in the evening. That fatty steak might be delicious, but it will also cause your digestive system to go into overdrive, reducing the quality of your sleep.
That being said, it’s also a great idea to drink a cup of our gentle Native Detox tea after dinner, to give your digestive system a little boost with the help of a unique combination of plants: native lemon myrtle, organic ginger, organic beetroot and organic mint. Lemon myrtle, the superstar in this beautiful elixir, contains citral, a powerful compound with anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties that help restore gut balance.
Native Detox is our best-selling product and has received hundreds of 5-star reviews from satisfied customers that have experienced increased immunity, improved digestion, or healthy weight loss.
Meditation for a calmer mind
One of the most common issues people have when they go to bed is a racing mind. It comes as no surprise though, considering we spend most of our day rushing, stressing out, worrying, solving problems and then “relaxing” by scrolling through our news feed. Our minds don’t really get a chance to unwind!
Maybe it’s time for a change? If you agree, meditation might just be the answer. You only need to allocate 10 minutes per day to start seeing results.
Here are a few steps to guide you if you decide to give meditation a try:
- Find your meditation spot. This should be a quiet room, away from distractions (yes, away from your phone too).
- Sit in a comfortable position, on a chair, lying down or whatever works for you. Let go of the idea of a “perfect” posture.
- Start focusing on your breath - if it’s easier, say to yourself “in” as you breathe in and “out” as you breathe out.
- Allow thoughts to pass like clouds on the sky. If you get lost in thoughts, just come back to your breath when you notice this.
- End your meditation with a thought of gratitude.
Meditating daily will help relax your mind and improve your sleep, which in return allows the body to detox naturally at night.
