Stress and sleep are very closely linked. Sleep is SO important: it’s when your body takes time to heal and recover from the day. Quite often, if you are stressed, you don’t sleep well, and if you don’t sleep well, you get more stressed. The team here at Roslyn Pharmacy look at the whole picture when we determine how to best help you.
We stock a number of natural health products which can help you with your sleep. Among the most popular are products containing cherry, which helps your body produce melatonin. Melatonin is a neurotransmitter that tells your body it’s time to get sleep. Magnesium is another product we often recommend for better sleep as it relaxes your muscles.
When you come in to see us with sleep problems, we will also look at your lifestyle and how you may be able to sleep better. For example, bright lights from phones, tablets or computers cause your body to produce less melatonin. So sleep hygiene is really important for a good night’s sleep.
Magnesium can also help you manage your stress levels. Especially for stress relief, it’s really important you come in to have a chat so we can get to the bottom of why you are feeling stressed. In addition to recommending the right natural health products, there may be some simple lifestyle changes we can help you achieve to create a less stressful environment for yourself.
For a more holistic approach to achieving a healthier lifestyle, we offer comprehensive health coaching here at Roslyn Pharmacy. Amy is a trained health coach and will support you throughout the process of changing your lifestyle.
