We’re all searching for an insomnia treatment that works. Right? Especially if your lifestyle involves high levels of stress and business travel.
A study from the Mental Health Foundation has found that 1 in 3 of us are severely sleep deprived. We also sleep for a whole 90 minutes less than our ancestors did back in the 1920s. Lack of sleep can cause premature ageing (nooo!), increase stress and anxiety levels, and rapidly reduce productivity.
Whether you have trouble falling asleep, disturbed sleep or restless nights, here are four of the absolute best treatments ever to help you get that much needed quality rest.
1. No digital detox required
There have been multiple studies on the impact using electronic devices before bed can have on your sleep. Yes, in an ideal world, we wouldn’t have to be glued to our laptops and mobiles all hours of the day. But for us busy business professionals this simply isn’t an option. Light from these devices is the problem – wavelengths at the blue end of the spectrum inhibit melatonin production and this makes it harder for us to get to sleep. There is a happy solution though. Apple introduced a new Night Shift feature in their iOS 9.3 update which reduces blue light and for Android there is genius app Twilight which does the same thing. You really will notice the difference!
2. Simple additions
Magnesium packs a punch as an insomnia treatment. A Magnesium Spray delivers the mineral straight into your skin tissue, which is absorbed faster into the body than oral magnesium supplements. Use between 5-10 sprays on your skin morning and evening and you will quickly see potent results.
3. It’s all in the tools
Acupuncture has long been a remedy for lots of things. Even sleep problems. This new tool is acupuncture on the go and it’s pretty revolutionary. Business flyers will love the Bulletproof® Sleep Induction Mat. It’s an insomnia treatment that you might not think would work, but it does. The matt is made on acupressure nodules that, when pressed against your back, removes tension and puts your body into a relaxed state. Ideal for travellers, it neatly rolls up. Give it a try!
4. The proof is in the pudding
The This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray delivers proven results. After extensive testing, a huge 92% of users said that they felt more refreshed and rested the mornings after. Quite simple, we’ve tried it, it smells amazing and it really works. And what more could you want than real results?
