Sleep deprivation affects our mood, emotional stability, and overall brain function. We may not start crying over a broken banana (well, maybe sometimes), but our ability to handle stress, make rational decisions, and maintain a positive outlook takes a huge hit.

Now, you might be thinking, "Okay, I get it. Sleep is important. But why are we talking about this in relation to women over 40?"

Well, my fabulous ladies, here's the tea: as we age, our sleep patterns tend to change. Hormonal shifts, hot flashes, and the all too familiar midlife stresses can wreak havoc on our beauty rest.

But fear not, because we have some powerful secrets up our sleeve to help you reclaim your throne as the Sleep Queen!

1. Embrace Your Inner Sleep Goddess
It's time to prioritize sleep like never before. Make it a non-negotiable part of your self-care routine. Create a cozy sleep sanctuary, invest in luxurious bedsheets, and banish all electronic devices from your bedroom. Create a ritual that signals to your brain it's time to unwind and catch those Z's.

2. Hormone Harmony
Hormones are notorious for causing sleep disturbances during this phase of life. Speak with your healthcare provider about potential hormone imbalances and explore natural solutions like fabulous essential oil blend specifically designed to support hormonal balance. With your hormones in check, your sleep will be too!

3. Sweet Dreams, Scentsational Sleep
Certain essential oils have magical sleep-inducing powers. lavendercedarwood, and vetiver can transport you to "la-la-land in no time. Place a few drops on your pillow or use a diffuser to create a dreamy sleep environment. Trust me, we do it as well, you'll wake up feeling like a queen!

4. Unplug and Unwind
The blue light emitted by our beloved screens can wreak havoc on our sleep. Set boundaries and establish a digital detox routine before bed. Instead of scrolling through your social media feeds, take a warm bath, read a book, or engage in a relaxing bedtime meditation. Your mind will thank you, and so will your sleep quality!

5. Sweat It Out, Sister!
Regular exercise can do wonders for your sleep. Engage in activities you enjoy, whether it's a brisk walk in nature or a dance party in your living room. Just remember, don't exercise too close to bedtime, as it can boost your energy levels and make it harder to wind down. And btw ... it does not have to be hard workout, follow your preference but move that body of your ... its your temple and its worth it!!

6. Sip Your Way to Sweet Slumber
Certain herbal teas, like chamomile and valerian root, have been used for centuries to promote relaxation and improve sleep quality. Sip on a warm cup before bedtime and let their natural magic lull you into dreamland. I also like a warm cup with a drop oflavender vitality essential oil

7. Magnesium Magic
This powerful mineral is often referred to as nature's tranquilizer. Supplementing with magnesium or using a topical magnesium oil before bed can help calm your nervous system and promote a more restful sleep.

8. Create Consistency
Our bodies thrive on routines. Aim to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. By training your body to recognize your sleep schedule, you'll find falling asleep and waking up refreshed becomes a breeze.

So, my fabulous ladies, it's time to turn off Netflix, put away your worries, and give yourself the gift of a deep, restorative slumber. Remember, you deserve to wake up each day feeling like the goddess you truly are. Sleep tight!
