Is this You? 

Maybe you can relate to why people reach out to me for help. Some have already tried different advice and even medications, but they are still tossing and turning, or waking up in the middle of the night, struggling to get back to sleep.

A few people get frustrated and angry; at themselves, and their inability to solve the situation on their own.

Others get worried: “How long will this go on for?” “Will I ever be able to sleep well again?”

Well whatever your situation is like, I’m happy to tell you that it can be very easy to sleep well – once you know how.

A Ruffled Mind Makes A Restless Pillow.

Reason #1 

The body is lacking in melatonin production and is not producing enough sleep hormones.

There are 50 hormones in the body, and 5 of them are needed for good sleep. Hormones are chemical messengers that act as messenger molecules in the body and are responsible for maintaining bodily functions such as:

  • Hunger, appetite, and blood sugar
  • Circadian rhythm and your sleep-wake cycle
  • Sexual function
  • Body temperature
  • Cardiovascular function
  • Muscle and tissue repair

The 5 hormones that are vital for a good night’s sleep and a fully functioning body are Melatonin, Progesterone, Estrogen, Testosterone and Cortisol.


Reason #2 

The individual is having disruptive thoughts and emotions which are interfering with the rest and relaxation process.

If you feel that you are too busy to give yourself a proper break, or maybe you feel that you want to solve a few issues before you relax, then think again. Practicing relaxation techniques has many benefits, such as:

  • Slowing heart rate
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Slowing breathing rate
  • Improving digestion
  • Controlling blood sugar levels
  • Reducing activity of stress hormones
  • Increasing blood flow to major muscles
  • Reducing muscle tension and chronic pain
  • Improving focus and mood
  • Improving sleep quality
  • Lowering fatigue
  • Reducing anger and frustration
  • Boosting confidence to handle problems


Reason #3 

The circadian rhythm is damaged by allowing the life style disturb the natural sleep cycle.

The circadian rhythm aligns our sleep and wakefulness with day and night9 to create a stable cycle of restorative rest that enables increased daytime activity.

Chronobiology is the study of circadian rhythms – the physical, mental, and behavioral changes that follow a 24-hour cycle. These natural processes respond primarily to light and dark and affect most living things, including animals, plants, and microbes.

Research shows that these internal clocks play a vital role in virtually all systems of the body:

  • Metabolism and weight 
  • Blood sugar and cholesterol
  • Mental health
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Neurodegenerative diseases like dementia.
  • Immune system
  • DNA repair
  • Cancer prevention

The key to good sleep

You too can wake up refreshed after a good night’s sleep. All you need to do is to go back to some basics.  Here is how.

It is simple to sleep well 

Our body needs a few simple things to function well but all too often we sabotage the process. Our modern life provides us with unnatural solutions and we fall for these shining options. 

When in reality the sleeping system relies on an old fashioned peaceful attitude, nutrition dense foods and plentiful restoration. None of which is either fun nor cool.

Stop sabotaging your system 

Very often the modern and driven person can’t be bothered to follow the fuddy-duddy sleep boosting formula. He or she believes that they have a healthy enough lifestyle, when they are actually cutting essential corners in order to be sleeping well.

Some hopeful people actually don’t believe they have time to sleep and sabotage the well tuned sleep system by ignoring the signals the body sends.


Even in well-rested people, NAPS can improve performance in areas such as reaction time, logical reasoning and symbol recognition.


Here is the key to good sleep 

All you need to do is to tweak a few basics:

  • Eat foods that promote melatonin and cortisol production
  • Sleep during the hours that are most critical according to your circadian rhythm
  • Keep your emotions calm and worry free and leave your planning to daytime hours
  • Stop sabotaging behaviors and go back to healthy basics
