New Sleep Secrets: What’s Keeping You Awake… And How to Get the Sleep Your Body Craves
People have been sleeping since… well, since there were people. And people have been having sleep problems for just about as long. Your distant ancestors may have lain awake for different reasons than yours. But sleeplessness is a problem mankind has faced for eons.
Today, millions of adults – especially older adults – face the same problem that haunted their ancestors. We may live in a time of plenty. But we still have plenty of reasons to lie awake, staring at the ceiling.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that recent research is beginning to crack the code. We now understand better than ever before why sleeplessness occurs… and how to get the sleep you need to stay healthy and vibrant.
Today, we’ll look at what’s keeping you up at night… how it can wreck your health… and how to beat the mental anguish of sleeplessness.
One of your most effective options may be DeltaSOM. But before we talk about solutions to sleeplessness, let’s look at why you need one.
The Latest News: A Lot of Americans Aren’t Sleeping Well
Sleep may be an old topic. But we’re only just beginning to understand why we sleep. And what the effects of sleep – or a lack of sleep – can have on our minds and bodies.
2017 is a good example.
It’s amazing how little we know about sleep. The largest sleep study ever was just released in January of 2017. And the numbers were disturbing…
- Almost 8 out of 10 people don’t get enough sleep
- About a third of people are seriously sleep-deprived
- Around half of adults use two or more sleep aids nightly1
If that many people are sleeping poorly… and that many people are desperate enough to double up – or more – on sleep aids… then we have a serious problem.
So, what else did we discover about sleep in 2017?
Well, we confirmed several ways sleeplessness makes you miserable – both physically and mentally. And we also learned ways to blunt the effects of some causes of sleeplessness.
4 New Reasons You Should Care About Sleeplessness
Whether you can’t fall asleep… wake often during the night… or simply can’t seem to sleep for more than a few hours… you have a problem.
Sleeplessness is frustrating. But it’s also unhealthy. Here are just four findings from sleep studies in 2017…
- Poor sleep wrecks personal performance. It’s not news that you’ll feel dragged out the day after a poor night’s sleep. But researchers at Microsoft brought really bad news in 2017. Two nights of poor sleep in a row lowers your performance for 6 days. That’s right: Just 2 bad nights leads to a week of under-performance.2
- Sleeplessness dangerously short-circuits your brain. Scientists at the University of California found that poor sleep degrades your brain cell’s ability to communicate. Too little sleep leads to “mental lapses,” including forgetfulness and perception problems.3
- Sleep Problems Do More Than Short-Term Damage. A study of 321 people aged 60 or older found a link between sleep and the risk of mental decline. The less sleep volunteers got during the last stage of the sleep cycle, the more likely they were to suffer mental decline.4
- Poor Sleep Leads to Taking Chances. According to Swiss scientists, sleeping poorly also leads to taking more chances. In this study, sleepiness was linked to risk-taking. And those taking greater risks didn’t recognize their behavior was risky.5
Of course, knowing the negative effects of poor sleep won’t help you sleep. But a few other new discovers will.
4 Secrets to Sounder, Healthier Sleep
Smart phones and tablets are ruining sleep for millions. Even for kids. The Penn State team confirmed the light from electronic devices leads to poor sleep, more morning fatigue, and even weight gain.
In fact, using a phone or tablet before bed led to up to an hour less sleep in children.6 Why should this worry you? Because kids sleep a lot better than adults. If electronic devices cut up to an hour from a 10-year-old’s sleep… imagine how they affect you.
The simple solution here? Turn off your electronics at least a couple of hours before bedtime.
Chat, play a board game (in lowered light), or spend a little quality time with your pets. Do anything that keeps you away from bright bluish light.
Our 2nd tip? Skip that midnight snack. Experts at the Mayo Clinic warn that eating too close to bedtime can make it hard to sleep. So resist the urge to have that last little piece of chocolate cake. You’ll sleep better on an empty stomach.
The folks at the Mayo Clinic also advise against indulging vices before bed. It’s easy to overlook these habits. But they can wreck your sleep.
The nicotine from that last cigarette is a stimulant that’ll keep you tossing and turning. The caffeine from a late-night coffee will get you wired. And even though alcohol is a depressant, it can cause sleep problems later in the night.7
Your grandmother probably told you “fish is brain food.” And she was right. But what she didn’t know was fish is also sleep food.
At least according to a new study from the University of Pennsylvania.
Kids who ate fish at least once a week had fewer sleep interruptions than those who ate it less often.8 Which means these volunteers were sleeping in longer blocks… allowing them to get a greater benefit from the natural sleep cycle.
So far, we have avoiding bluish light and eating more fish. But here’s a tip that may take a little soul searching.
U.S. News and World Report writes a 2017 study found that having purpose leads to better sleep.
The study looked at 820 people aged 60 – 100. Those who felt their lives had meaning were less likely to have breathing problems or “restless legs” – during sleep. Both these issues are linked to poor sleep quality.
This may sound a little “out there,” but what if you could cut your risk of sleep problems in half – or more?
That’s how much this little tip is worth.
The researchers say mindfulness training can help you discover greater meaning in your life.9 As we’ve reported several times before, mindfulness meditation can help ease stress… and has even been linked to lower levels of stress hormones.
So this “crazy” idea may just be worth looking into.
But what if before bed is the only time you have to catch up on the day’s news? Or if you can’t get into meditation? Or maybe you just want to sleep better now?
Luckily, Nature has an answer for that.
The Natural Solutions to Sleeplessness
DeltaSOM is designed to help you with every aspect of sleep. Especially if you can’t make the lifestyle changes the latest research suggests.
We combined the most potent – and best studied – natural sleep enhancers to create DeltaSOM. For example…
- Melatonin is well known as the “sleep hormone.” Studies show it helps you get to sleep sooner… and helps normalize sleep-wake patterns.10
- Valerian and Lemon Balm are both well known as sleep enhancers. But Middle Eastern studies suggest these herbs may even ease the sleep problems that come with the so-called “change of life.”11
- Hops is a key ingredient in beer. We know that alcohol has a depressant effect – but it can disrupt sleep later in the night. Hops, however seems to have a different effect. In a university study, non-alcoholic beer – a good source of hops –improved sleep quality.12
All 4 of these herbs are included in the DeltaSOM formula… along with 18 more potent sleep enhancers.
Sleep enhancers like B vitamins that fight the effects of stress… jujube that demonstrates hypnotic and sedative effects… and GABA, the neurotransmitter that calms your racing mind.
DeltaSOM is a potent mix of vitamins, minerals, herbal extracts, and other nutrients, carefully balance to help you get to sleep fast… stay asleep longer… and get back to sleep again if you wake.
It’s the most effective sleep formula we’ve ever offered. And now you can enjoy sweet, refreshing sleep every night with no risk… and savings up to 35%.
