3 Tips For Winding Down At Night
I wouldn’t say that I have a specific nighttime routine, but there are a few rituals I like to implement in the evening that really help me wind down and get ready for a good night’s sleep. Aside from getting in plenty of movement and light exposure during the day, these are my go-to tricks. In partnership with Natural Vitality. #ExperienceCALM
Natural Vitality CALM - I love to sip on a glass of CALM to wind down at night. CALM is an effervescent drink that helps promote healthy magnesium levels in the body. Magnesium is crucial for helping our muscles relax, and a lot of us are deficient in this important nutrient. I’ve been drinking CALM for years now and always turn to it when I feel anxious or restless at night. It has helped me tremendously.
Legs up the wall - This is one of my favorite things to do. It just feels SO good. To get into this position, sit sideways next to a wall, pivot your hips and gently swing your legs onto the wall. Lay back, relax and enjoy! Sometimes I like to place a blanket or a towel at the base of my spine to elevate my hips a little further. In this position the legs are higher than the heart which can boost circulation and simulate the lymphatic system. Great after a long day of sitting at a desk or being on your feet.
Keep the lights low - This one is really simple! Try to avoid bright light from things like cell phones, televisions, computers, etc at least an hour before bed. If you must be on your devices, turn the brightness down.
