So the other day when I was down at the Ranch, I had a chance to speak with our Ayurvedic specialist, Carla Levy, for a blog post I will be doing for Rancho La Puerta. For those of you who don't know what Ayurveda is, it's an ancient medicine system from India. I honestly don't know much about it, but basically it's about keeping your body balanced to prevent disease.
I had a little mini consultation and the subject of sleeping came up. I told her that I am not that great of a sleeper. I can fall asleep pretty easily, but most of the time I don't seem to get that deep deep sleep. I often wake up in middle of the night and can't get back to sleep (which sucks!). Her advice was to drink a hot cup of milk right before going to bed. Well, since I don't drink regular cows milk, she said almond milk should do the trick. She also said to mix nutmeg, cinnamon and raw honey with it.
So I did it the night I got back from Mexico and surprisingly, it tasted really good and holy ****, it worked! I slept like a baby that night. Now, I thought, well maybe it was just a fluke, but I've been doing it for the past couple of nights and I've been getting great sleep. I haven't been waking up in the middle of the night which is awesome. Thank you Carla!
I don't know if this will work for everyone because we're all different according to Ayurveda, but if you're having trouble sleeping, just give it a try. It has worked for me and may work for you.
K, ya'll, yup, it's summer here again in San Diego. Kind of stoked about it, although I was getting excited for Fall, but I love the sun. I cannot believe it's Halloween time and yet again, I want to go out, but I don't have a costume. This happens every year. I am the worst! So, I think I'm just going to keep it simple and be a cat. Pretty easy, huh?
Any plans this weekend ;)
