5 Ways To Snooze Your Way To A Happier Cycle

Did you know that good quality sleep is not only important for your overall health, but also for you menstrual health?

We get it, life can get busy, but lack of sleep or irregular sleep patterns can cause menstrual irregularities, cramps & other symptoms. That's why establishing healthy sleep habits is key to promoting regular menstrual symptoms, and improving overall well-being. Here are 5 ways to prioritise sleep and show some love to our bodies and cycles!

1. Develop a relaxing bedtime ritual - such as taking a warm bath, reading a book, or practicing relaxation techniques like deep breathing or meditation.

2. Establish a consistent sleep routine - try going to bed and waking up at the same time, incorporate laming essential oils like lavender into your bedtime routine.

3. Create a peaceful sleep environment - a dark room can also help promote sleep by signalling to the brain that it's time to rest. Use blackout curtains, white noise, or a fan to create a peaceful sleep environment.

4. Cut back on caffeine in the afternoon - it's important to avoid stimulants like caffeine and alcohol before bedtime. Instead try sipping on herbal tea as caffeine can take up to six hours to fully leave the body.

5. Limit screen time and blue light in the evenings - limiting screen time before bed can help promote better sleep by reducing exposure to blue light, which can disrupt sleep-inducing hormones. Instead, try reading a book to wind down.
