Sleep & Stress: 3 Ways Sacred Essentials Can Help￼
Sleep is imperative when it comes to our overall wellbeing. During this time of rest, our body is hard at work processing information, repairing cells, restoring energy, and even regulating hormones. However, factors like stress can interfere with a restful night’s sleep and prevent us from feeling our best the next day.
Insomnia and sleep-related issues are actually derived from stress and can cause a vicious cycle when proper sleep isn’t happening each night. Stress can also directly impact your sleep quality and length. When this happens, you may have difficulty falling or staying asleep which in return can increase your stress levels. However, there is a way to break the cycle.
Getting enough rest can help alleviate stress, but we understand how that can be easier said than done, especially if lack of sleep is causing you more stress. While it is recommended to stick to a sleep schedule, keep electronics at bay, and stay active, have you considered how CBD could help?
Our bodies have something called an endocannabinoid system, which is a network of messengers and receptors that control our bodies’ essential functions. Typically, this system would produce enough messengers to help regulate things like our sleep/wake cycles, however, our body breaks these down relatively quickly. On top of this, we deplete these messengers even faster when we’re under stress. This is where CBD can help.
CBD has the ability to bind loosely with certain receptors in your body and help with what your body’s endocannabinoids are lacking. For example, the CB1 receptor focuses mainly on the central nervous system which is comprised of the brain and spinal cord. CBD has the ability to interact with these receptors and can potentially regulate feelings like anxiety. It may also help regulate your circadian rhythm and assist with mood to help balance stress and get you back on track with your sleep.
Depending on your preference and needs, there are a variety of ways to use and benefit from CBD. Interested in adding CBD to help with stress management and promote better sleep? Here at Sacred Essentials, we pride ourselves on offering natural, high-quality CBD products. See how we can help.
- Incorporate It Into Your Favorite Nighttime Beverage
If you like sipping on something warm in the evenings to unwind, a CBD tincture may be a great addition to your cup. Our Nighttime Wellness Tincture has been crafted to promote rest and can be taken 30 minutes before bed. With a peppermint flavor, adding a few drops to a cup of your favorite tea would make a soothing nightcap.
- After Dinner Mint
Many CBD gummies are filled with sugar, which can leave you feeling a bit wired. Like caffeine, sugar isn’t a substance that should be consumed close to bedtime. If you’re looking for a little after dinner mint with relaxation benefits, reach for our sugar-free CBD infused mints. These were created to promote convenient, on-the-go wellbeing making them easy to enjoy whether you are at home, traveling, or staying with guests.
- Soothe Sore Muscles
While mental stress can have a negative impact on your sleep, physical stress can have the same effect. Pain and discomfort from exercising and/or aliments can prevent us from getting the rest we need to recover. Our signature CBD Infused Pain Balm is crafted to provide fast and effective relief to sore muscles so you can relax and get the restorative rest you need.
Stress and lack of sleep go hand in hand and if one is not addressed, you may find yourself in a never-ending cycle. In addition to a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and a balanced diet, the addition of CBD products may enhance your sleep hygiene and help regulate your stress levels. And our CBD wellness products are all made with trusted, natural ingredients so you can feel confident when adding them to your nighttime routine.
