Sleep is an essential part of wellness, but is often one of the first things to get sacrificed during times of stress of busyness. We think we’ll “catch up” on the weekend, but somehow, we never quite feel refreshed. While I can’t make your life less busy (if you figure it out, let the rest of us know!), I can help you make the most out of the time you do have for relaxing!
Here’s a few things that happen when you don’t get enough sleep:
- Sleepiness (no surprise there)
- Mood Changes
- Difficulty Concentrating and Impaired Performance
- Memory and Thinking Problems
- Disorientation, Hallucinations and Paranoia
- Poor Planning Skills
- Poor Driving and Delayed Reactions
As you can see, sleep impacts so much more than whether or not you’re feeling tired. Many people who use our products have shared that they use it to help them relax at the end of the day, so that they can get a fulfilling night’s sleep. Since so many of you have shared your struggles with getting a good night’s rest, I thought I’d share some helpful tips! Don’t forget to start off with some tincture, tea, capsules, softgels, or even a vape to help you set the tone for a relaxing night. Better yet, sign up for a subscription to make it even easier to have everything you need without having to think about it!

Want a longer yoga session to wind down from an intense day? This is a lovely, relaxing video for getting grounded, calming your mind, and relaxing your body. Personally, I prefer to do this with a nice, relaxing cup of Hemp Tea.
I hope you enjoyed today’s tips! Have a great night, and sleep well! <3
