Counting sheep not working for you?

 

Here are 3 tips that we’ve found really promotes restful sleep for us:

 1. Electronic Devices

– limit your interaction with them towards the end of the day.  TV, artificial light, wi-fi, can all artificially stimulate your mind an body after dark when it is naturally winding down and preparing to rest and recover.

2. Routine

– Having a routine and similar time pattern 7 days per week can also help get the body.

Our daily routine includes exercise, meditation,  drinking BEE Dreamy  it maximizes the best nature has to offer to help relaxation.

3. Autogenic Conditioning 

-Sounds complex?  Not at all…

It works on the basis that you can condition your mind to accept your suggestion.

Many people who are stressed and cannot sleep chant to themselves: ‘I can’t sleep, I cant sleep, I am a terrible sleeper’ or something similar. Annoyingly the brain accepts this as a command and keeps you awake.

Given this is the case a great way to use this to your advantage is by lying down in a relaxed position, taking some deep, relaxing breaths and then saying this in your mind instead:
