Sleep Advice from an Expert
“Did you know that the best sleeping position for the human body is on the back? It is the most convenient one, allowing the head, neck and spine to align and stay in a neutral position. This way, no additional pressure or curves are being added to the back.”Christine Hansen
Ayurvedic Sleep Tonic
While it’s recommended that you avoid eating meals close to bedtime, here is a drink that not only helps you get a better night’s sleep, but also has an abundance of health benefits, including building overall vitality and alleviating stress.
- 2 cups fresh almond milk (or organic milk of choice)
- 1-2 pitted dates
- 1 tbsp ghee
- 1 tbsp raw honey
- ½ tsp ground cardamom
- 2-3 threads saffron (or a pinch of ground nutmeg)
- Optional: ¼ tsp ashwagandha powder
In a small saucepan, lightly heat the almond milk until warm, not boiling. Transfer to a blender and add the remaining ingredients. Pulse until combined. Pour into a mug and sip slowly before bed.
