Our bodies need sleep to restore & rejuvenate, to grow muscle, repair tissue and synthesize hormones.

How much sleep do you get each night? I recommend trying to get 8 hours.

Some nights this isn’t realistic or achievable for me & I can usually get any where between 5-8 hours a night. No matter if it’s 5 or 10 I have to make it work!

I’ve got some cool tips on getting the most out of your sleep.


Sleep in the most natural environment as possible. This means no harsh light, no PHONE, no TV.

Cool Temperature

Whether it’s the window open or the fan on. A cool sleeping environment will make for a comfortable night!

Bed Time Routine

This one probs sounds a little silly but it works! Create a ‘bed time routine’ that you follow each night before bed. It can be anything you like to help you relax & get ready for bed.

Zinc & Magnesium

There are so many benefits of taking Zinc & Magnesium before you sleep! Z-Mag is a highly absorbed zinc and magnesium drink that helps play a vital role to assist in regulating healthy sleep patterns! It also assists in boosting the immune system, promoting anti-oxidant protection and hormone regulation! I take it 30 mins before I go to bed & it truly helps.

I want to leave you with a cool fact I read the other day

“The hours slept before 12 at night are proven to be more effective than those slept after 12”

My advice – go to bed early & rise with the sun!
