Well, I won’t say mine alone. My grandmother is the love of my life. She’s a wonderful woman, but I’ve unfortunately inherited her capacity to worry. If she doesn’t have anything to worry about, she’ll manufacture something. I think that’s why she watches the 24 hour news networks… “what can I worry about today?” I’ll tell you the same thing I tell her. Stop watching.
I know my grandmother and I are not alone. You may have the same issues. There is a reason American’s consume more anti-anxiety medications than anyone in the world. They’re over-prescribed, in fact, when there are all natural alternatives that achieve the same objectives… better rest, relaxation and happiness.
The first thing you can do for yourself is get a healthy diet of adequate protein and healthy fats. The Standard American Diet, appropriately acronym’d SAD, provides all the fuel the body needs in it’s over-abundant amount of sugar and carbs, but fuel is fuel. It lights your fire and when you’re not active enough to burn the fuel it gets stored as fat. It’s not what you need to rest. The SAD diet is almost entirely void of the protein and necessary fats that are required to manufacture the neurotransmitters in the brain that fight stress and subsequently evoke happiness and contention.
There is no substitute for a healthy diet, but an excellent complimentary addition is ZZzzTime. If it can help me and my grandmother, it can help you. I was my own guinea pig on this one. It works!
First, you’ll rest better. Without a good night of sleep, you’ll always be behind the 8-ball. You’ll struggle at work and fail to produce. Those struggles will follow you home to your family, and in turn, you’ll take all of this accumulating stress to bed with you. And the cycle continues…
My new all natural sleep aid contains an adequate dose of melatonin, tryptophan and L-theanine. You’re already familiar with melatonin. You’re also aware that tryptophan is the enzyme in turkey that makes you want to nap following Thanksgiving dinner. You may also recall the Seinfeld episode in which Jerry deviously sedates his girlfriend with a giant turkey entree so he can play with her nostalgic toy collection. One of my favs.
However, you may not have heard of L-Theanine. It’s a hidden gem. It’s found mostly in teas from Indonesia and SE Asia. I stumbled upon it while living in Indo and subsequently fell in love with it. It works for me. Very relaxing, but without making you overly-sleepy. It’s a good addition to the melatonin.
ZZzzTime also contains hops. You didn’t think the alcohol in beer was the only thing that relaxed you, did you? Hops!
Now that we’ve solved your inability to sleep through the night, there is still some lingering anxiety we need to deal with.
Did you now that about 90% of the regenerative bio-chemical reactions that take place in your body happen while you sleep? It’s true. First and foremost, this is another reason sleep is so important. Sleep is anti-aging. Insomnia is the opposite. Insomnia ages you prematurely.
Second, why not fuel these regenerative bio-chemical reactions with everything you need, including 5-HTP, to feel well rested, relaxed and refreshed. You’ll be happier. Here is why… Click to learn more.
