AT WELL THEORY, OUR GOAL IS TO HELP YOU CURATE A LIFE LIVED WELL – IN A LASTING, HOLISTIC WAY.
What You Need To Know About The Benefits Of Sleep
Getting restful sleep should be one of your top priorities when you’re establishing your wellness routine.
As you rest, your body repairs itself and performs essential tasks – benefiting your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. The brain forms new neural pathways to support memory recall and brain health. Your body detoxes itself and clears out harmful free radicals.
When you get enough high-quality sleep, your immune cells get what they need to function properly and protect you from invaders.
The bottom line: if you want to improve your health, feel better, boost your mood, and more – getting more sleep is the first place you should start.
4 Things That Happen When You Don't Get Enough Sleep
Your brain doesn’t stop working when you’re asleep. During rest forms new neural pathways to establish memories, and not getting enough sleep can interrupt this process.
Cortisol, a stress hormone, is produced when you’re sleep-deprived. This can affect collagen formation, which is the protein that keeps your skin smooth and youthful.
Risk Of “Lifestyle” Diseases
When you aren’t getting enough sleep, your blood sugar levels increase and your body struggles to use glucose. This can put you at risk of developing diabetes.
Lack of sleep causes fatigue – which can affect brain function and mental clarity. Fatigue is a major cause of most road accidents. For better productivity, make sure you get 8 hours of sleep a day.
WHAT ARE YOUR NEXT STEPS FOR IMPROVING SLEEP?
1. Set A Sleep Schedule.
Your body likes routine. Try to go to sleep around the same time every day, even on the weekends. This will keep you from experiencing restlessness in the middle of the night.
2. Limit Caffeine Intake.
Drinking or eating too much caffeine can not only keep you awake, it can also increase stress in your body. Some amount of caffeine is not harmful and can even be beneficial, but too much can harm your health.
3. Create A Space That's Ideal For Rest.
Revamp your bedroom with intention. Keep electronics and anything that creates light out of sight. Clear clutter that can create anxiety while you’re trying to rest. Invest in a sound machine to drown out noise from neighbors and nearby roads.
4. Turn Off Screens
The blue light emitted from computer and phone screens can interrupt your body’s production of melatonin. Melatonin is what your body begins producing when the sun goes down to encourage sleep.
5. Consider Supplementation.
Bodily stress can interrupt your sleeping patterns, so taking a daily multivitamin can help encourage a more balanced sleep schedule. Certain supplements, like CBD, and our Tart Cherry Extract (which naturally contains melatonin) can also assist in improving the quality of your rest.
UPDATE YOUR LIFESTYLE & WELLNESS ROUTINES.
IT’S EASY TO GET STUCK IN OLD WAYS OF LIVING. IT’S TIME TO MAKE ROOM FOR THE NEW WAYS OF HEALING.
Out With The Old
There is no quick fix for any of the common ailments that are caused by restlessness. And heavy pharmaceuticals like sleeping pills are a bandaid solution that doesn’t address what’s at the core of your problems.
When you’re trying to improve your health, start with simple, sustainable habits that will last.
Don’t create more issues than you solve – when you naturally improve your sleeping patterns, your symptoms will follow.

Take Charge Of Your Health With Well Theory
Conventional medicine often overlooks holistic, long-term lifestyle changes in favor of prescribing heavy pharmaceuticals, recommending harsh and invasive treatments like surgeries, and more in an attempt to stop pain or disease as it occurs.

I think we all know that conventional and modern medicine is reactionary and piecemeal, whereas good medicine should be proactive and encompass the whole of you and your body’s systems.
