Improving sleep quality is essential for overall health and well-being. Amount and quality of sleep can greatly impact how you feel in the morning. 

Here are 3 tips you can implement into your routine to get the best sleep of your life.

1. Maintain a Consistent Sleep Schedule
Aim to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends (if you can)! Consistency helps to regulate your body's internal clock.

Establishing a bedtime routine, such as reading or taking a warm bath, can signal to your body that it's time to wind down. A consistent bedtime routine works on your brain just the same way as the bell in Pavlov’s dog experiment.

2. Create a Sleep-Inducing Environment
- Keep your bedroom cool, quiet, and dark to promote relaxation and minimize disruptions.
- Invest in a comfortable mattress and pillows that support your preferred sleep position.
- Limit exposure to screens, such as smartphones and laptops, before bedtime, as the blue light emitted can interfere with the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep.

3. Sleepy Girl Mocktail with Illuminate
Over the last few months the viral Sleepy Girl Mocktail has popped up everywhere! Made up of a few simple ingredients; tart cherry juice, magnesium powder and the sparkling water of your choice is said to help lull you into a deep sleep. So what makes this drink the ideal sleepy time beverage?

Tart Cherry Juice contains a high amount of melatonin, a sleep-inducing hormone and tryptophan, a precursor to serotonin and melatonin. Tart cherries are also known for their powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits and are packed with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. 

Magnesium Glycinate is known for its calming effects and helps to regulate your GABA levels (an amino acid that plays a crucial role in sleep) which help send a signal to your brain to wind down. 

While the Sleepy Girl Mocktail is great on its own, we like to add two capsules of Illuminate, our natural herbal CBD formula shown to help improve quality of sleep! By adding Illuminate, we find ourselves falling asleep faster, feeling a deeper sense of calm and have no issues sleeping throughout the night!

Being consistent is the key to improving sleep quality and experiencing the restorative benefits of a good night's sleep. Try the above tips and experience the best sleep ever.
