I think all moms can relate to that feeling – was there a time, many years ago, when we weren’t tired? What was that like? Can you remember? Parenthood comes with a decrease in sleep, an increase in stress, and somehow our bodies learn to adjust and adapt as the years go by. Or do they?
Sleep is crucial to our health. When we lack sleep, continually pushing the clock further back whether it be from a busy night of work, a late night binge-watching whoopsie, or an adjustment in our clocks to sleep less continually, our health ends up suffering. According to some studies, chronic sleep loss can put you at risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and more. Yikes! I knew that not getting enough rest puts us at a higher risk of catching the latest bug zipping through classrooms and playgrounds, but I didn’t realize how seriously a lack of sleep continually could affect our health.
Rather than reach for a prescription remedy to get your sleep on track (which, long term, is just not helpful), why not work to develop better sleep habits, eat healthier food to help your body adjust and settle at night, and use natural remedies to encourage stress management and better rest?
Some tips recommended to help get your sleep back on track include setting a regular schedule to wake up at the same time each day, reduce or eliminate caffeine (I don’t drink any caffeine after the kids get home from school, easier said than done that’s for sure), and to get regular exercise whether that be from a visit to the gym or just walking the dog. Small steps can and will lead to bigger changes if you’re consistent.
Bio-Strath® Tablets are a natural supplement that helps to promote well-being by decreasing fatigue and supporting the body during periods of physical and mental stress. Here’s a really informative video explaining exactly how and why it works:
Kids as young as 4 years old can take this product. It’s worth looking into and asking more questions about it if you have been feeling tired, stressed and just generally lethargic. We use this product in our household because I know how important sleep is to overall health!
You can shop online for A.Vogel products like Bio-Strath Tablets ($28.99 for 100 tabs) and you can also use the find a store function at avogel.ca to find a store or pharmacy that carries these products so you can ask more about them in person.
