Sleeping On A Plane

Sleeping On A Plane

Sometimes you need to take the plunge and take a late flight to your destination. To make sure that you show up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed you need to be able to master the art of sleeping on an airplane. While it isn't the most ideal location to get those much needed zzz's, there are ways that you can improve your sleep quality to make sure you don't miss a single second of vacation time. Keep reading if you want to learn some tips to make sure you don't lose a single second of shut-eye on your next overnight flight.


Comfy Clothes


This doesn't mean wearing your slippers and pajamas through the airport; just loose and comfortable clothing that won't cling, dig into your body or prevent you from being comfortable. Another good tip is to layer your clothing so you can adjust your temperature accordingly.


Relax


Make sure to give yourself some time to relax before you board your flight; find a quiet corner somewhere in the airport and do some light stretching, listen to some relaxing podcasts or music and put yourself into a zen state of mind before getting on the airplane.


Legroom


If you are in economy you won't have a lot of legroom, so you need to make the most of every centimeter you have. Make sure that you take out anything you absolutely need from your carry on and then store your bag in the overhead compartment to make sure you get the legroom you need so you are completely comfortable.


Night Routine


Find a way to replicate your night time routine from when you are at home. Find things you can do on the plane that will mimic what you do before you crawl into bed at home -- like having some water, moisturizing your hands or listening to certain music or watching a movie to help lull you to sleep. Doing this kind of routine will signal to your brain it is time to sleep and help you get to sleep faster.



Sleeping in a place other than your own bed is always a challenge, but thankfully there are always ways around it. Find out what works for you and get into that routine leading up to your flight. Nutrovape Sleep is also a great addition and will be easy to incorporate into your routine before you even step foot into the airport, it works quickly and will help make sure you get to dreamland quicker than the plane taking off.

Snooze Button Syndrome

Snooze Button Syndrome

We have all been there; the alarm goes off and you know you need more sleep so you smash the snooze button. Ten times later you finally look at the clock and realize you’re actually 45 minutes behind schedule and now you need to boot it to work. If this is becoming a habit, and one that you need to break because you are sick of doing the walk of shame past your colleagues, keep reading.

No Social

Studies have shown that you shouldn't use technology right before you go to sleep and right when you wake up, although it’s a hard habit to break if you’re used to checking out Facebook as soon as you open your eyes. The light from the screens we use trick our minds into thinking that it is daytime, and we need to stay wide awake, which can cause problems if we are trying to actually shut down for the night. Invest in an alarm clock and charge your phone outside of your bedroom so you aren't tempted, also if you need to watch T.V. to fall asleep, make sure to set the timer for it to shut off so you get a restful sleep and won't have an issue getting out of bed in the morning.

Be Positive

This might sound crazy, but if you have a positive outlook on life, it will actually make it easier for you to start your day and also get great sleep. If you are in a positive state of mind you will be able to fall asleep easier and have a restful night, and won't hit the snooze button when the alarm goes off. It may be hard to be positive all of the time, but even if you focus on a small, good thing for the day and focus on it, you will be surprised how your whole outlook changes.

Nutrovape

Nutrovape offers great products to help you get the energy you need, and also the great sleep you deserve. Try using Nutrovape Sleep if you need a full eight hours, and, instead of slamming the snooze button, try using Nutrovape Energy for a quick burst of energy that will make you forget about coffee.

As great as those five extra minutes of sleep are in the morning, hitting snooze can do more damage than good. Try something new to make yourself a morning person; you will get on your bosses good side and you will feel amazing.  

How Does Sleep Affect Your Diet?

How Does Sleep Affect Your Diet?

Did you know that what you eat can actually affect your sleep? Although it's a given that if you eat some hefty BBQ or five-alarm chili you will be up long into the night cursing the food gods for your discomfort, there’s a little more to it than that. This article is going to go over some things you might not know when it comes to the relationship between your diet and sleep patterns.

Fats and Carbs – We crave carb-loaded, fatty foods when we are tired. Lack of sleep actually affects the natural endocannabinoid system that is in our brains, the same that’s affected when ingesting cannabis. In other words, when you go without sleep your brain gives you a bad case of the munchies.

Bacteria in our stomachs – Scientists are just beginning to understand how stomach microbes affect our circadian rhythms, which play a role in regulating when we sleep and wake up. Stomach microbes affect levels of cortisol, a stress hormone in the body that drops when we are asleep.  A study showed that disrupting stomach microbes in rats and then feeding them high-fat diets resulted in obese rats, compared to rats fed high-fat diets and didn't have their stomach microbes disturbed.

Fruits and Veggies – The more exhausted you are, the less you consume; people who don't get the right amount of fiber and eat high quantities of saturated fat slept more lightly and woke up more during the night compared to people who have high-fiber diets.

Disorder – Sleep eating disorders are a real thing and can be dangerous. This is where people will eat when they are sleeping and not remember doing it. This disorder is more common among women but affects 1 in 3 of the population and is more evident in people with eating disorders, with 10%-15% also have sleep eating disorders.

Getting enough sleep is crucial, not only for your peace of mind, but also for your diet as well. Those deadlines are important, but your well-being should be your top priority; don't be afraid to go to bed at 8 p.m., your body will thank you in the long run.
