A good night’s sleep is one of the cornerstones of a healthy self. Getting an adequate amount of rest each night has been linked to numerous health benefits: lower stress and anxiety, improved mood, clarity of mind and memory, as well as helping to boost our immunity.


Society has been catching on to the fact that better sleep can improve our overall health, and we have been using various methods in order to achieve that. Drugs, sleep tapes, and other approaches have been used, all in the hopes for deep sleep. Using crystals may be one method that most people have not tried. The molecular structure of crystals and gemstones resonates at certain frequencies that can correspond with our own energetic fields, helping to balance out our energy and improve our well-being. This includes lack of sleep.


If sleep is compromised, whatever the cause, whether due to external circumstances or internal anxiety and tension, the body cannot recuperate sufficiently. If your sleep is interrupted, if you cannot sleep right through the night or if you generally find it tricky to drop off, the crystals in this elixir will help. If you are experiencing severe sleep deprivation, you should seek advice from a qualified doctor, alternative practitioner or therapist.

What Happens When We Lack Quality Sleep

  1. Memory processing happens during deep sleep. During deep sleep, short-term memories are moved to long-term storage. If our brains aren’t getting the chance to do that work, you may be forgetful when it comes to everyday, short-term memory.


  1. When we’re sleep deprived, our resolve, willpower and decision-making abilities are compromised. We tend to make poor choices, setting ourselves up for failure. Keeping that in mind, it’s best not to make important decisions with long-term consequences if you’ve been lacking sleep.


  1. It may take us up to 4 times longer to complete tasks when we’re sleep deprived compared to when you’re well rested. There’s no point in trying to skip to sleep to get more done either. The fastest way better performance to is to optimize your sleep to get better rest.


  1. We don’t get stronger when we’re in the gym, the real magic happens when we rest. When we sleep, our bodies are in an anabolic state, or a time for building and repair, rather than the catabolic, breakdown state we’re in during the day.Human growth hormone is secreted while we sleep and it plays a big roll in healing, recovery and muscle growth. Sleep is the magic key to getting the results you want from your workout and nutrition plan.


  1. When we’re sleep deprived, we have less energy and motivation to engage in the leisure actives that help us de-stress and sleep better to begin with, and so begins the endless cycle. We’re tired so we skip exercise, then we don’t sleep as well because we didn’t get enough movement during the day. Exercise helps up sleep. We’ve gotta tucker ourselves out so we can hit the pillow and pass out! If you don’t have time for a full-blown gym session, get in as much movement as you can during the day. If you’ve been sitting, get up every 30 minutes and do jumping jacks or squats, or go for a quick walk. Use a timer to make sure you’re doing this every 30 minutes. Movement cultivates energy, so if you’re tired, moving is one of the best ways you can naturally boost energy levels.


  1. A lack of quality sleep creates a viscous cycle in which you’re more prone to factors that contribute to weight gain. We already talked about how willpower and resolve is compromised, making you more likely to reach for unhealthy foods. If we’re tired and stressed, we start looking for ways to calm down and one easy way to do that is by eating sugary, fatty foods. Additionally, we have a harder time dealing with insulin and this affects our blood sugar levels, leaving us even more wiped out than before. With sleep deprivation our brains go into survival mode, the amygdala takes over (we’ll talk more about that below), and because of this, not only do we crave more fuel but our metabolism slows down in our to maintain resources. Hunger hormones like ghrelin are boosted and leptin, a hormone that signals fullness, is suppressed. If you’re looking to make a positive change to your lifestyle or need to lose weight, improving your sleep quality is just as important as nutrition and exercise.
