Is your body keeping you up at night?
More than half of adults have problems sleeping at least a few nights each week.
Lack of sleep can cause irritability, fatigue, drowsiness, memory loss, and poor concentration. It can even lead to chronic health problems, and cause serious injuries (for example, sleepy drivers cause thousands of car accidents every year).
The benefits of getting enough sleep are numerous. As pointed out by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, it can help you:
- Get sick less often
- Stay at a healthy weight
- Lower your risk for serious health problems, like diabetes and heart disease
- Reduce stress and improve your mood
- Think more clearly and do better in school and at work
- Get along better with people
What’s keeping you up? And what can you do about it?
The underlying cause of restlessness might be a physical or psychological condition that requires professional medical treatment.
Or, as is often the case, the cause might be an environmental or lifestyle issue that you can address yourself.
But that’s easier said than done. In our modern world, most of us live stressful and hectic lives. We bring our work home with us. There are a million distractions. Our mobile devices are always on. There are everyday issues to deal with. Even stopping to eat can be expensive and time-consuming.
No wonder so many people want a quick fix. Unfortunately, they too often rely on addictive prescription sleep medications to do the trick.
Hypnotic drugs and tranquilizers are not only habit-forming, but they have been known to turn people into “zombies” who walk, eat, drive, and even have sex while unconscious! Perhaps you’ve heard about the court cases where acts of violence were blamed on prescription sleep meds.*
That’s why we recommend following a few practical rules that can be combined with safe over-the-counter remedies.
- Get plenty of exercise every day.
- Soak up some sunlight for your daily dose of natural Vitamin D.
- Keep your bedroom cool and dark at night.
- Avoid stimulants like coffee, especially near bedtime.
- Invest in a high-quality, comfortable mattress.
As a supplement to this routine, there are a variety of sleep-inducing, over-the-counter medications to choose from.
Our own naturally safe remedy, MagniLife Sleep Assist, is a quick-dissolving, under-the-tongue tablet that’s proven to relieve sleeplessness and difficulty falling asleep, with no unwanted side effects or risk of dependency. It contains five active ingredients that specifically target sleeplessness, irritability, overactive mind, early waking, and exhaustion.**
We also have MagniLife Relaxing Legs for when your legs just won’t stay still. Available as a sublingual tablet or as a topical cream, it relaxes unpleasant sensations, pain and discomfort, which results in tossing and turning.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults need seven or more hours of sleep per night for the best health and wellbeing.
