This week is #mentalhealthawarenessweek and there's no denying that poor sleep can make us feel down, worried, and stressed. Studies have even suggested that up to 90% of adults with depression experience sleep problems.
We know that there's no quick fix - but we'd like to think that we can help our customers get 8 hours of quality sleep to make the other 16 hours just that little bit easier.
I don't like how most people talk about sleep.
They talk like 'measuring' sleep matters.
Get less than X hours and its bad. Get more than X, it's also bad. Body doesn't fall asleep in Y minutes? Bad. Takes over Y minutes to get out of bed? Bad.
Let me tell you what really matters: rejuvenation.
Some people can feel rejuvenated on a few hours sleep. Some people feel rejuvenated by gently easing out of bed. Some people fall asleep instantly.
But all of it can be CHANGED. Life is changable. Bodies are adaptable. Habits are trainable.
You just have to focus on the correct thing.
I haven't used an alarm in over a decade, and I always sleep well and wake up well, feeling refreshed and ready to rock life. Animals behave similarly. So do certain tribes and monks. They don't worry and fret over ever minute of life. They enjoy life and listen to their bodies regarding sleep.
Quit counting hours and minutes, and instead aim to rest, rejuvenate, and awaken easily and fulfillingly.
If you can't do that, then drop the subject entirely. Most anything else will just hold you back.

Sleep Fact Saturday
You all want more sleep, (I assume that's why you're following me ) but is a pretty vulnerable pastime for both Bigs and Smalls
We all need to sleep on the reg to recharge, reboot and replenish (A bit like charging a )To do this we have to completely switch off and shut down into a deep sleep.BUT when we're in a deep sleep we've no idea what's going on with our bodies or our environment.
We have to sleep to survive but we also have to survive whilst sleeping. The body is a survial beast so we all have several sleep survial skills: we have light periods of sleep during the night where we're aware of what's going on we do change checks at regular intervals throughout the night when we we're overtired we overcompensate and produce cortisol to make sure we're on high alert to change that could compromise us #saturday#sleepfacts#survival#sleepskillz#sleepsurvivalskills#sleepscience#sharingmysleepshizzle

Sleep can help reduce wound healing time. According to a recent research, when receiving small skin wounds, the participants who sleep normally (7-9 hours) healed faster than those who lack sleep (2-3 hours). It can be explained by the fact that lost sleep harms the immune system and the healing process.

"I have always stuck to a few golden rules - no phones or laptops near the bed, fresh cotton sheets, a cool room and dark curtains. If my mind is buzzing with work, I find a couple of pages of a book which is enough to send me to sleep" - Ella Ringner founder of @yolkegirl shares her #SleepYourselfHappy insight.

Let’s talk separation anxiety for a minute. A lot of parents fear this and our society tends to put a negative connotation on it - but it’s actually a completely normal and important part of infant development. It seems to hit a peak around 8 months of age and can last until about 18 months of age. A toddler should show some distress when the primary caregiver leaves and a securely attached infant will welcome that caregiver back when they return. .
Tip: never “sneak out” of the house and instead let your child know you are leaving and that you will come back. Allow them to feel that emotion of sadness that you’re gone and happiness when you return. .
This is not a drill! Tomorrow we're so proud to be launching our #Kickstarter campaign for the pillow that will transform your quality of sleep. Get ready to #SleepYourselfHappy!

We aim for 100% customer satisfaction. You’ll love your new mattress. We guarantee it!
Did you know there is a lot going on in your mind and body when you’re asleep? It's true. We often have customers message us asking why they experience vivid crazy dreams after using our magnesium oil. Well, if you've ever watched someone in REM sleep you would notice that their eyes although closed, are moving back and forth rapidly as they dream. This is how REM sleep gets its name - rapid eye movement, this movement of the eyes is your mind's way of processing dreams as you are experiencing them. Using Salt Lab helps you get to this stage of sleep which is the stage that most of your dreaming occurs. #magnesium#magicmineral#sleep#funfact
Many foods contain naturally occurring substances that help with sleep such as almonds that are high in magnesium, a mineral needed for quality sleep, and yogurt, which is rich in sleep-prompting tryptophan. What's your favourite bedtime snack? #SleepYourselfHappy
It’s more than looks! Stop by one of our showrooms today and let the experts guide you to feeling the difference in our mattresses. See you soon!
"There are three pillars of wellness that I believe in - sleep, nutrition and exercise. As the years have gone on I have been more diligent with sleep, especially after reading "Sleep" by Matthew Walker. I always aim for 8 hours as that is the optimal number Matthew recommends in the book. Here are a few things which I feel help me have a better sleep. Don't eat after 8pm and take a bath with lavender and magnesium. I use an app called f.lux for my phone and laptop which comes on at around 6pm and alters the light to reduce eye strain and blue light which can keep you more awake." Some nuggets of wisdom on how to #SleepYourselfHappy by Rimi Dabhia, founder of @loveraw.
Did you know that B6 can help you remember your dreams and improve sleep ?
Participants were given a 240-mg B6 tablet, a Vitamin B complex tablet, or a placebo before bed . It was found that people who took the B6 tablet alone could remember significantly more dreams and more details than the other groups 🧠.
Why? One theory is that the part B6 plays in converting tryptophan to serotonin induces initially deep, dreamless sleep . This may cause a “rebound” so that people dream intensively in the last few hours of sleep-- when they are most likely to remember .
This same scientist wants to investigate techniques to induce lucid dreaming- where the dreamer is aware they are dreaming and can partially control the dream!
How many of you remember your dreams?
