5 Tips to Get The Best Sleep of Your Life
Good morning gorgeous!
How was your sleep? If it wasn’t exactly what you needed to wake up feeling rested and full of energy, you might be having problems sleeping! These issues can arise from things like not having a good bedtime routine, to what position you sleep in, and more!
Want to find out why you’re not having a good sleep? Of course you do.
It’s so important for you to feel rested and energetic throughout your ORBERA® weight loss journey! When you feel rejuvenated and motivated, chances are you’re really going to kick butt at the gym, prepare those healthy lunches for the week, and make some progress on the scale!
HOW SLEEP CAN HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT
During your ORBERA® weight loss journey, it’s super important to always get a good night’s rest! Having a good sleep can help aid your weight loss efforts in many different ways. For one, you’ll wake up feeling rested and full of energy so you can make the most of your workout that day! Not to mention you’ll have some energy left over for grocery shopping and preparing some healthy meals.
Not only that, but it’s hard to midnight snack while you’re fast asleep. The longer you’re awake, the higher chances you might head to the kitchen for a bedtime snack. One that you most likely don’t need. It’s even been shown that you burn calories while you sleep! That’s a win-win if you ask us!
THE BEST POSITIONS FOR A GOOD SLEEP
Did you know that if you don’t fall asleep in the right position, chances are you won’t have a very good night’s sleep?
SLEEPING ON YOUR BACK
When you sleep on your back can help prevent neck and back pain, help reduce the effects of acid reflux, and even minimize wrinkles!
SLEEPING ON YOUR SIDE
While sleeping on your side won’t provide you with the unbeatable sleep that being on your back will, it’s still a good choice. It can help reduce snoring, decrease acid reflux, and has been proven to be quite useful during pregnancy.
SLEEPING IN THE FETAL POSITION
Sleeping in this position can increase pain from arthritis, restrict breathing from your diaphram, and even cause premature facial wrinkles! As a result, we do not recommend this sleeping position on a regular basis.
SLEEPING ON YOUR STOMACH
And the worst sleeping position: sleeping on your stomach.
Sleeping on your tummy can make it quite difficult to maintain a neutral spine position, which can lead to all sorts of aches and pains the next day! It can also put unnecessary pressure on joints and muscles, which can lead to irritable nerves, muscle pain, numbness and tingling.
So, what’s the verdict? Never fall asleep on your stomach, and always, try to fall asleep on your back.
CREATING THE PERFECT BEDTIME ROUTINE
Changing the position that you sleep in is only the first step.
Having the right bedtime routine can really help you enjoy some shut eye so you can wake up beautiful, bright eyed and bushy tailed, every morning!
Try incorporating these into your bedtime routine:
- Drinking non-caffeinated tea
- Reading a book
- Having a bath
- Soaking in a hot tub
- Listening to calm music
- Wearing comfortable pajamas
Once you’ve figured out which bedtime routine works for you, stick to it and stay on schedule!
