Move More to Sleep More

Move More to Sleep More

Sleep is one of the most important things we can do for our health, yet many of us struggle to get a good night’s sleep. Did you know that exercise can change the way your brain functions, leading to better sleep quality and duration. Studies have shown that regular exercise helps to reduce stress, anxiety, and cortisol - the stress hormone, while alleviating endorphins which help you to relax.

Mindful movement, which is exercise done with awareness, can be especially helpful for improving sleep. It involves paying attention to your body and you’re breathing while moving, all of which helps to quiet the mind and reduce stress. Some examples of mindful movement practices include yoga, tai chi, and qigong. It is all about being aware of the movements you carry out, paying attention to how these movements affect your muscles, which parts of your body are being stretched, and where you are feeling the pressure while exercising.

Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness meditation is a powerful tool that can help you cultivate greater awareness and presence during Ramadan. By practicing mindfulness, you can learn to be fully present in each moment and appreciate the blessings of this month more fully. This can help you develop greater gratitude and a deeper sense of connection with your mind and body.

5 Tips for Mindful Movement and Better Sleep:

Exfoliate

Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells and to help your skin absorb moisturizer more effectively. Look for a chemical exfoliator that works well on your skin.

Cleanse

Start by washing your face with a gentle cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. Use lukewarm water and pat your skin dry with a clean towel.

Tone

Apply a toner to your skin to remove any remaining dirt or oil and to help balance your skin's pH level. Look for a toner that is alcohol-free and contains ingredients like witch hazel, chamomile, or rosewater.

Moisturize

Apply moisturizer to your skin to help keep it hydrated and supple. Look for a moisturizer that is suited for your skin type, whether it's oily, dry, or combination. Don't forget to apply moisturizer to your neck and chest as well.

SHOP MOISTURIZE

Protect

Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. Sunscreen should be applied every day, even on cloudy days, and reapplied every two hours if you are outdoors.
