The No-Effort Way to BOOST Your Brain
Happy New Year!
For some of us, today is all about setting goals and look towards your future.
But some of us, it’s not so cherry. It’s easy to be overcome by negative thoughts, depression and anxiety on New Year’s Day and throughout the year.
If any of this sounds like you, listen closely to what I’m about to tell you.
Problems like nervousness, anxiety, and depression can steal all the joy out of life – and they can hit seniors particularly hard.
And they all start right in your brain.
But research proves that there’s a dead simple way to boost your brain health and improve your mood FAST.
And you don’t even need to leave your house.
A recent study, conducted by Oxford University researchers and published in Lancet Psychiatry, shows that a lack of sleep is like poison for your brain… and your mood.
That’s because poor sleep actually causes double trouble for your mind.
Bad sleep first hurts how you think and that alters what you think.
If you’ve ever had a terrible night’s sleep and found yourself obsessing over bad thoughts, you know what I’m talking about.
When we don’t sleep well, we increase negative thoughts and they get stuck in our heads.
And here is the real problem: the longer we go without good sleep – and the more we think that way — the greater the psychological consequences.
It is no wonder that the scientists in the study found that poor sleep (less than 7 hours a night) increased paranoia, anxiety, and depression.
But here’s the good news – it doesn’t take much to start sleeping better, even if you’ve struggled with sleep problems for years.
Let me show you.
Dr. Scott’s Peaceful Sleep Program:
- White noise: Many people use a fan or a white noise generator to drown out house noises and help them sleep. You’ll find plenty of white noise apps in your smart phone’s app store, or you can buy a white noise machine online.
- Be consistent: Try to go to bed and wake up around the same time. Establishing a schedule and keeping it helps your body prepare for sleep.
- Use herbs at night: There are many herbs that can help you sleep, including chamomile, passionflower, hops, valerian and others. You can take them as a tea or in pill form.
- Melatonin: One of the best ways to help sleep is to use melatonin. We tend to produce less melatonin, a vital hormone, as we grow older. You’ll find melatonin at any vitamin or supplement shop.
Sleep is more important than we could have ever imagined a few years ago. Use these tips to give yourself a good night’s sleep – and I guarantee you’ll improve your mood in the process.
Health and Happiness,
