Deep sleep recharges your batteries, restores your body and mind, and boosts the performance of all your body's most important systems. If you have ever experienced problems falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up feeling unrested, you are not alone. Over 100 million Americans have reported occasional sleep problems.
Wearing a sleep mask at night blocks light from your clock or outside streetlights, helping your body to get the uninterrupted, rejuvenating rest it needs.
One of the quickest and easiest things you can do to get a good night's restful sleep is to be sure that you have adequate darkness to sleep in. The presence of light or dark can influence your body's natural internal clock and sleep patterns.
Your natural sleep cycle begins as the sun starts going down. When it is dark outside, your body begins to produce Melatonin, the sleep hormone. As the sun rises, the presence of light begins to signal your brain that it is time to wake up. This natural rhythm has worked perfectly for us for thousands of years; darkness signals sleep, light signals wakefulness.
Nowadays, we often times do not get to experience true darkness as we try to sleep at night. The digital glow from alarm clocks reflects across our bedrooms. We read e-books, watch television, or check our cell phones before bed. Street lights shine into our bedroom windows. All these varying light sources contribute to sending conflicting signals to our brains as we try to sleep at night.
Dr. Mercola Sleep Mask with Lavender has the added benefits of aromatherapy to help you get a better night's sleep.
Research has shown that the scent of lavender eases anxiety and insomnia. The scent of lavender also promotes a sounder, more restful sleep. Lavender increased slow-wave sleep, the very deep slumber in which the heartbeat slows and muscles relax. This aromatic herb slows nervous system activity and boosts mental capacity while you sleep; allowing you to awaken feeling refreshed and revitalized.
