How to Sleep Like a Baby

pregnancy-excercise

By Kate Green, writer.

Exercise is something we all require…. It helps, release unwanted energy, keeps the body strong and fit, invigorates us, and helps us to think clearly as well as keeping motivated.

For me I like to exercise in the morning as it gets your day going and energised and it is likely I will not have space in the afternoon to do it. The main thing currently I am finding is how exercise helps you sleep so much better at night. The majority of people claim that they don’t exercise on a regular basis because they are too tired. Well, could that have something to do with your sleep habits? This is very possible.

We do a lot of sitting throughout the day and to get your day started with some high-energy workout balances out the eating and sitting you do at least 5 times a week.

Certainly with all the business and personal matters happening in your day to day life which at times gets overwhelming and draining, you are also taking on other peoples energy whether you are aware of it or not, so not only is exercise great for the body it is also a great releaser for the mind and is a fabulous stress reliever.

Exercise can help you sleep sounder and longer and feel more awake during the day, but it also helps to know the type of exercise you choose and the time you participate in it during the day.

The ideal time to exercise

Late evening exercise right before bed or about three hours before your bedtime can actually make it harder to get to sleep. Vigorous exercise right before bed stimulates your heart, brain and muscles as well as raises your body temperature, which does not help.

Morning exercise can relieve stress, improve your mood and certainly improves your sleep, but ideally to get an even better sleep is to exercise in the outdoor light. Natural light in the morning, whether you’re exercising or not, can improve your sleep at night by strengthening your body’s sleep-wake patterns.

Late Afternoon and early evening exercise is the most ideal time to benefiting a great night sleep. Vigorous exercise at this time of the day (5-6hrs before bed) is best as it raises your body temperature before bed, which then let’s it start to drop just as you’re getting ready for bed. This decrease in body temperature helps ease you into sleep. The best form of exercise at this time is a cardiovascular workout. Vigorous exercise keeps your heart rate up and your muscles pumping for at least 20 minutes after, so you are still burning fat and your body temperature is still at a high.

Make your exercise vigorous enough to make you sweat a little. It has been proven that non-aerobic stretching and concentration exercises e.g. Yoga do not impact sleep although it is very very good for you, but this is about getting the best sleep possible.

The best forms of cardio vascular exercise is:

  • Walking
  • Jogging
  • Swimming
  • Tennis
  • Boxing
  • Bike riding
  • Spin class

If you can do this at least 3 times a week you will certainly start to notice a big difference in your health, fitness but most of all your sleep, which of course will have a positive spin on your business life and personal life.

As always, keep it lean, green and in moderation.

Every time my little girl has her bath, after using your products (we have the entire range) our whole family would comment on how our little ones smells! We all love your products, cannot give enough praise for them. The quality of your articles are also a great resource for the new parents wanting to raise a sustainable baby like us! Much love — Sangeeta, Neutral Bay
Last fall, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Bonjour Baby via a giveaway over at the ecoxpo. They had a great display and hosted a giveaway and I won an organic cotton mini bunny. It was perfect timing too, as my little girl was just born. He loves his new cuddly friend. I haven't gone back to use any other resource platform again. Your articles are very high quality and I love your selection of products too. The Bonjour Baby products are truly amazing! I always look forward to your new articles and products. — Millie, Sydney
My three-year-old had a seemingly ‘endless’ runny nose with watery eyes, sneezing and chest congestion. Thanks to your article on homeopathy for babies we were able to naturally treat her condition. She is now perfectly fine and we use those natural remedies on ourselves too when the seasons changes. Thank you very much for your quality articles. — Alexandre
Thank you Bonjour Baby, you have done a fantastic job. We discovered you from a friend and you have inspired us to live a bit greener once our little one arrived a few months ago. My sister and I are continuously looking for your new articles, as we want what is best for our bubs. So thank you again for all these quality articles. — Magda and Jenny, Alstonville
I just wanted to let you know that our kanoe has basically saved my life and my marriage. It has changed our lives completely. My daughter now takes at least 3 naps a day! Before I had this Kanoe I was never able to get her to sleep except for when she would fall asleep on me nursing (...) I just wish I had known about it earlier. Thank you for making our life a little easier :) — Megan Williams
I would just like to say how much I love Bonjour Baby! They are really fantastic! I recently emailed some about baby care to some other mums in my parenting group and now my whole parenting group are all devoted Bonjour Baby fans! I’m just so glad your website is available, thank you again and keep up the great work! — Amalia, Wakerley QLD
