My last post focused on getting your room ready for a great night’s sleep and today it’s all about getting your body ready for bed.
Stress has huge links with many illnesses and conditions but the link is very clear when it comes to skin issues. It’s a complicated process that goes on inside the body which leads to stress effecting our skin- I will post more about this another day. To cut a long story short many of us spend too much time in ‘fight or flight’ mode and not in the ‘rest and digest’ mode. This means that the body doesn’t allow itself to heal.
If you constantly feel wired, anxious, find it hard to sleep or wake up with a buzzing brain then you are most definitely in the ‘fight or flight’ mode.
Making that time for relaxation throughout the day and especially before bed is paramount if you want to get a good night’s sleep.
You could try 5 mins of deep breathing or a yoga nidra recording as part of your bedtime routine.
More on these two techniques in the coming days.
Let me know in the comments which one you would like to hear about first. Or which ones you enjoy using.
