Sleep, A Bedtime Ritual

The Sleep Revolution by Arianna Huffington. Transforming Your Life One Night at a Time.
Arianna’s new book helped Vali and I come up with the name of our new blog. Now whether you like Ariaanna or not, she’s got a point in this 286-pager. It’s an exceptional tool for anyone looking to come to peace with themselves about why it’s important to get a good night’s rest and how it truly affects our health.
Coming from the corporate world, I know the truth behind the coffee at the early morning meeting. That truth… people are tired! From the boss at the head of the conference table, to the colleagues who just came in from Chicago on the red eye- a vast majority of them didn't get 8 hours of sleep the night before. Perhaps they were fiddling around with their Powerpoint until 2 am, or up a hundred times thinking about their speech- it’s a good hunch there wasn’t enough sleep for that meeting, or for our 9 am punch in at work on any given day.
Whether you’re in corporate America or running a small business, pouring coffee at a diner or anyone for that means, we all need better rest for our health. It’s not just the business folks who are burning the midnight oil, drinking tons of caffeine or taking pharma or over the counter drugs to help them sleep at night, it is your neighbor, the guy who owns the Bodega and the woman who made your bagel and lox this morning that was in a bad mood most likely because she’s exhausted.
Let’s get to the heart of healthy- why is sleep so important to us and why does it matter?
Stress, anxiety, insomnia, overeating, headaches, migraines. You name it, it’s a factor of the office- from deadlines to staring at computer screens, slouching in your chair all day to the blinding lights from above, to traffic, to the world in chaos.
So when we read Arianna’s book and cited her points about the health risks of not getting enough sleep, with the benefits of her research, we knew we had to do something big at Essence of Vali. After all, our Sleep Blend is a global best-seller.
We thoroughly recommend ordering this book to understand the value of sleep. And if you don’t get it, no worries. We have read enough and we’re doing our very own research, interviews and trends to fluff your pillow at night.
And as the leading aromatherapy company with the award winning blend, SLEEP, that you know and love, we are creating our very own sleep revolution right here in our blog.
So, welcome… and thank you Arianna and thank you to everyone who’s ready to learn why sleep matters so very much. And to those who are tired today… Just remember, there are 100 drops of sleep in every SLEEP concentrate. Isn’t it time, you re-ordered or ordered for the very first time.
