Stress—we all know that overwhelming feeling that often lingers for way too long. As our list of things to do grows longer, our worries multiply before our eyes, causing our anxiety levels to rise, which leads to us just wanting to hide under the covers forever. This is obviously not possible since we lead busy, fulfilling lives. We don’t have time to let stress get us down! So, what do we do about it? Well, besides meditation, exercise, eating healthy, and binge-watching your favorite Netflix show (always brings me joy), there is something else that can really make all the difference—quality sleep.
When you neglect your need for rest, your body begins to shut down in protest, causing you to be groggy, cranky and well, stressed! Not only do you need to set enough time aside to get your full 7-8 hours of sleep, but you need to think about how you’re sleeping. This is where our organic body pillows come in, the sleeping aid that can relieve all sorts of discomfort, giving you a calming (and stress-free) sleep. Keep reading to see what I mean.
In order to overcome your stress, you need to slow down those racing thoughts, particularly when you’re getting ready to fall asleep. I mean, how can you have sweet dreams about organic kapok when you’re too busy freaking out over that surprise birthday party you’re planning? Stop thinking about confetti and cake for a moment and breathe. Make a list of the things that are worrying you before you go to bed, and then agree that you won’t think about those worries until the morning. It’s time for you to focus on your body, your alignment, and your comfort.
Lay on your side and grab your body pillow. Focus on relaxing your muscles and how your body feels in that moment. By using a body pillow, your spine stays in proper alignment, helping you avoid back pain in the morning. The body pillow will also stop you from tossing and turning, which is usually caused by uncomfortable sleeping positions.
