Sleep

 

Want some?   Do you sleep all night?  Do you get enough?   Do you wake in the middle of the night and not be able to go back to sleep?  The next day feels to go forever because you are tired?   If you say yes to the last two then welcome to my world.

If you eat whole, nutritious foods without preservatives and chemicals then sleep should also be a top priority.  When it is not you feel like you are dragging yourself through your day.

One reason is lack of magnesium in our diets, the foods we consume do not have enough of this vital nutrient.  To get more you can apply magnesium lotion to the body, however; at a conference this last year I learned that only about 25-35% of us can adequately absorb through the skin, this means you may be wasting your money on lotions.  Supplements are another great way to get the magnesium you need.  Epsom salt baths are another great way, this still involves the skin issue but, due to the larger amount of skin in the bath it seems to work.

The Paleo Mom has some great suggestions in this atricle.

Chris Kresser talks about the importance of sleep here.

Robb Wolfe has many podcasts and articles about sleep this one is incredible.

Hope all this knowledge can help you sleep.
