Howdy! We’re the Meditative Beats Team and we have one question to ask you…Are you getting a good night’s sleep?
If you are getting a good night’s sleep that’s great. Stay tuned in the video for tips on making it even better.
But if you’re not getting a good night’s sleep then keep watching because we might have a solution to your problem.
Studies show that a lot of us don’t get enough quality sleep
We all have those nights where we stay up late to watch a movie or read one more chapter in that new book we just bought. Or maybe we are out with friends and the time just slips away from us. As long as we don’t make a habit of this behavior, we should be fine, if not a little tired the next morning.
But what happens if we go to bed at a decent hour and wake up still feeling as if we stayed up late.
For some people, this happens nightly. Either they have a hard time falling asleep or for whatever reason, they have trouble staying asleep after they drift off. When this happens more than 3 nights a week, this is what experts call Sleep Deficiency.
According to research, sleep deficiency is a common health problem that can afflict all age groups. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 50 to 70 million Americans have a chronic sleep disorder.
Research has found that sleep deficiency is linked to many chronic health problems such as:
- Heart Disease
- High Blood Pressure
- and Depression
Poor sleep is also linked to an increased risk of injury especially injuries on the job.
So how well do you sleep at night? Experts say it’s beneficial to get at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep every night.
But many people don’t always get even a minimum of 6 hours.
Things like noisy neighbors, loud ambient noises in your home, or even your bed partner can prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep.
What if I told you there was a way for you to minimize ambient noises, diminishing those sounds that wake you up at night. And what if I also told you there was a way to help you fall asleep quicker and easier than you ever have before
Are you excited? We sure are. There is nothing more important to us than your getting a good night’s sleep. That’s why we developed our sleep meditations.
We use things like White, Pink and Brown noises, ambient sounds like rainfall, ocean waves, and forest sounds, or soft soothing music to help you block out noises that can wake you up at night. Plus, we use a deep delta Isochronic tone to help you fall asleep quickly and easily.
Studies show that sounds played at night can help diminish sharp noises that wake us up and give us a better sleep experience. In fact, researchers found that listening to pink noise at night can even help us improve our memory.
Here are some tips to get an even better quality sleep than ever before.
Tip#1– Avoid eating heavy meals close to bedtime. Going to bed with a full stomach is not only uncomfortable but can also contribute to weight gain.
Tip #2 – Increase Sun Light exposure. Our bodies have a natural clock known as our circadian rhythm. Natural sunlight helps keep our circadian rhythms healthy. Sunlight also helps improve our daytime energy as well as our nighttime sleep quality. Avoid the harsh rays by getting your sunlight before 11 am and after 3 pm.
Tip #3 – Don’t consume caffeine late in the day. Studies show caffeine stimulates your nervous system and consuming caffeine after 3 or 4 pm may stop your body from relaxing at night.
Tip #4– Optimize your Bedroom environment. Research shows that minimizing external sharp noises and reducing lights, including artificial lights from alarm clocks, along with maintaining a comfortable sleeping temperature can help give you a better night’s sleep.
Tip #5 – Reduce stress and anxiety. Studies show relaxing and clearing your mind with relaxation techniques such as meditation, mindfulness, deep breathing and visualization can improve the quality of your sleep.
