Do you ever wake up in the morning and just not feel like yourself? Or as many say, wake up on the wrong side of the bed? This is a clear sign that you might not be getting enough sleep.
Getting the right amount of sleep each night is one of the most effective ways to take care of our body. In fact, sleeping is the way in which we recharge ourselves (3). Lessing the amount of time we have to rest can significantly increase the chances of feeling irritable and moody. Not only is this uncomfortable for us and our peers, but it can also lead to more serious mental health issues. Negative emotions can drive people closer to the inability to cope with stress, which in return can result in anxiety and depression (4). After a while, experiencing these changes in behavior can become a pattern, resulting in a long-term issue. Taking this into consideration, it’s important to our overall health that we take care of smaller aspects of our wellbeing, to avoid much bigger problems in the future.
Sleep Deprivation Can Hinder Your Goals
What many people fail to accept, is that a lack of sleep can impair your cognitive performance. The ability to think clearly is key for managing your time wisely and checking items off of your to-do list. According to Barry Krakow, MD, and Medical Director of the Maimonides Sleep Arts and Sciences. Ltd., the body goes into a process of repairing itself on a cellular level when we’re asleep. So when you lose this time to rest day after day, you’ll quickly lose the ability to perform at your maximum capacity, both physically and mentally (2).
If you’re becoming unmotivated and are unable to achieve your goals, there’s a good chance that you’ll begin feeling discouraged, or as though you’re falling behind. If these patterns should continue for an extended period of time, feeling sad, angered, or even anxious is bound to occur. Before these emotions spiral out of control, take a step back and remind yourself of where the issues all began. If you realize that it’s simply because you’re exhausted all of the time and are losing sleep, then take action and get on track! However, if you believe that it’s something more serious, we always encourage you to speak to a medical professional.
So What Can You Do?
We get it, not everyone can get a solid eight hour of sleep every night. But you can improve the quality of sleep you do get! That's why we developed NIte Nite - the melatonin gummies we’ve all been waiting for. Not only did we make sure that Nite Nite is sugar-free, but it is also vegan, non-GMO, and naturally flavored. Leaving out all the bad stuff was our way to help improve your nighttime routine!
We understand that the quality of rest you experience actually begins before you drift to sleep - which is why we included ingredients such as L-Theanine, Valerian Root, and Chamomile Extract. These ingredients are used to relax the mind and body in preparation for a great night’s sleep.
Natural plant derivatives like lemon balm extract and passionflower extract are also a part of Nite Nite, which are shown to eliminate disturbances throughout your sleep cycle, preventing you from waking up throughout the night.
And then, that’s where melatonin comes in to make this such a powerful blend. Sometimes, melatonin is supposed to work, but we can be so stressed and have such a busy brain that we still can’t fall asleep. So once Nite Nite allows you to feel calm and serene, the melatonin kicks in to help you stay asleep until morning. It should also be noted that Nite Nite contains just the right dosage of melatonin that doesn’t leave you dizzy and groggy upon waking up. Oh, and did we mention that the gummies are deliciously flavored with the calming taste of Jasmine Tea? You’ll be sure to catch some Z’s in no time!
