As a child, do you remember how you felt about bedtime? More specifically, how you felt about going to sleep?
In my house, bedtime was a nightly battle. I have countless memories of being chased around the house by my parents when bedtime arrived until my sister and I finally agreed to surrender and get ready for bed. This, of course, was only the first step. We still had to be wrangled into pyjamas and have our teeth brushed. If we didn’t make a break for it during this process, which happened about half the time, then one of our parents would read us a story, sing us a song, and/or rub our backs all with the hopes of coaxing us to sleep for the night. This happened every night until we reached a certain age. You would think after that routine, we would be exhausted and want to go to sleep. But, I’m sure you know as well as I do, that usually was not the case.
Many adults still have a complicated relationship with sleep--and, nobody to corral them into their PJs and read them a story. Except, this time the tables have turned; many of us want to fall asleep, but can’t. When we were children, we didn’t want to go to sleep because we didn’t want to miss out on what was going on when we went to bed. Often, as adults, we long for a few hours of peaceful sleep but have difficulty achieving it because we are unable to unplug. We run through to-do lists, think about schedules and budgets and work, finish our TV shows, etc. all because we are still afraid of missing out on something when really the thing we’re missing out on is sleep.
Sometimes when I lay down to sleep at night, I feel overstimulated—that I can’t relax or turn off my brain. I know I want and need to sleep but I feel unable to connect my mind to my body to make it happen. Personally, I’ve tried everything from aromatherapy to natural medicine to prescribed sleeping pills--some things help a little while others make absolutely no difference. Nothing I’ve tried seemed to be a solution.
Then, I tried a Philip Stein Sleep Bracelet. I admit, I was sceptical at first. The technology was like nothing I had ever heard of before but, after waking up refreshed after my first night giving it a shot—I couldn’t believe how effective it was. It has become and an absolute staple in my bedtime routine.
I read over the guide included with my bracelet on the first night I put it on. It instructed me to put it on 15-30 minutes before I wanted to sleep. Much to mine and my partner's amazement, I was asleep in 10 minutes.
Many people suffer from insomnia. Insomnia has been proven to have a severely negative impact on our health and wellbeing because is compulsory to both our physical and mental health, happiness, and ability to be productive.
The Philip Stein Sleep Bracelet is a natural sleep solution that has also been proven to help reduce anxiety, tension and stress through the use of their proprietary sleep technology.
How it works
The bracelet uses natural frequency technology. The technology is based on the theory that our bodies are falling out of sync with the Earth’s natural frequencies due to inundation of human-made frequencies emitted by technology like cellphones. This disconnect causes insomnia, as well as both stress and anxiety. To combat this disconnect, the bracelet is embedded with a specially designed disk to acts as an antenna to reconnect the Earth’s natural frequencies back into the body to help you to relax and fall asleep naturally.
At first, when I initially read about the concept, it seemed a little hard to believe. But, when I thought about it more critically, it makes perfect sense. We live in a world of electronic technology. In my bedroom at bedtime, there is always two cellphones, a television and an Apple TV usually all in use within 20 minutes of trying to sleep. Most people know that you aren’t supposed to use these devices before bed because the blue light is said to interfere with your sleep BUT, we all do it anyway because we can’t sleep. It becomes a vicious cycle.
For me, this bracelet is the tool I needed to break this cycle of insomnia. I know that I don’t need to keep the TV on anymore in hopes of tricking myself into falling asleep because when I put on my bracelet, I can feel myself start to relax. Finally, I feel that connection I was missing between knowing I am tired and wanting to sleep and actually being able to relax enough to fall asleep.
How to use it
The instructions recommend that you put on the bracelet 15-30 minutes before you are ready to sleep and that you try it for 30 consecutive nights to maximize its full wellbeing benefits.
I recommend that beyond following the instructions, you put on the bracelet with an open mind and you give it the opportunity to work by turning off the television and putting away your cellphone.
It’s a wonderful feeling to go to bed with absolute faith you will be able to sleep.
Sweet dreams :).
