Even dim light can interfere with a person’s circadian rhythm and melatonin secretion. A mere eight lux— a level of brightness exceeded by most table lamps and about twice that of a night light—has an effect, notes Stephen Lockley, a Harvard sleep researcher. Light at night is part of the reason so many people don’t get enough sleep, says Lockley, and researchers have linked short sleep to increased risk for depression, as well as diabetes and cardiovascular problems. Wearing an eye mask in bed to block out all sources of light works well if there are light sources you can’t easily switch off or block.
Make sure you get the morning sunlight too, go out for a walk or sit and read in a very bright room, this will help reset your circadian clock. Another tip is to ground yourself by walking on the grass and wearing an earthing band when you sleep or get an earthed bedsheet, we’ll be adding these products soon.

When a stressful lifestyle or other types of imbalances such as over-thinking overwhelm the body, these adrenal glands become unhealthy and ineffective. This is the prime reason why most people are always saying they feel so TIRED! This condition may degenerate into Addison’s disease or total exhaustion or worse if not addressed.
Early indications of adrenal gland exhaustion may include insomnia, extreme fatigue, arthritic joints or backs, low blood pressure, poor circulation, chills, dizziness or light headedness, waking up exhausted and with low levels of energy and extreme drowsiness in the afternoon. Supporting the adrenals with Magnesium (Oil and Epsom Salt Baths), Vitamin C from EsterC and some herbals such as in AdrenalREST can combine to make a massive difference to how we cope with stresses in our lives and also help us to fall asleep when we need to.
