The Good Night Sleep Cleanse

  • We’re all in need of one.
2 MINS READ

Detoxing is such a great way of cleansing your mind and body but have you ever wondered the if a restful night’s sleep can serve as a detox for you? With a different routine being forced upon us, our normal routines have gone to a toss, especially our sleep routines. A sleep cleanse is when you take up the challenge to clean up your sleeping habits to help detox your brain from toxins, similar to a nutritional cleanse.

Here’s how you can do it.
1. Follow the same sleeping and waking up hours

The best amount of time you can invest in a good nights sleep is at least 8 hours, even on weekends. Try to align them so that you sleep the same hours every day, forcing you to sync into a natural sleeping rhythm that attunes to your internal biological clock.

2. Follow a consistent bedtime routine

Inculcate habits that induce better sleep such as giving yourself a break from technology or lighting soothing candles or even reading a book. This will help prepare your body for the nighttime and release melatonin, your natural sleep hormone.

3. Your bedroom is only meant for sleep

Dark, quiet and cool, your bedroom should not have a single gadget in sight, as well as any trace of the outside world. The space is only for you to rest and catch up on some zzz’s. Add as much comfort as you can in your bedroom to create the perfect environment for you to fall asleep. Regulate the temperature, add a duvet and a few extra cushions never hurt anybody.

4. Avoid alcohol, nicotine or caffeine at least 4 hours before bed

Although alcohol helps you fall asleep quicker, it actually disrupts your sleep later in the night and results in frequent awakenings, night sweats, nightmares and more. Stimulants such as alcohol, nicotine and caffeine should be avoided at all costs.

5. Quiet your mind

Keep a simple journal next to your bed and get into the habit of writing down your worries before you head to bed. Another way to relax your mind is to jot down the to-do for the upcoming day. Once done, follow it up with breathing exercises or before-bed yoga poses that help calm your mind and help you sleep faster.
