In preparation for next week's elections, we're reposting an article from the 2020 election season. Unfortunately, we still might need more sleep to get through the craziness of this election cycle. Enjoy, and sleep well!
Here’s a fun fact if your candidate doesn’t win next week: if you increased the amount you slept each night by just two hours, and consistently maintained that level for the entirety of the next four years, you’d sleep through approximately 122 extra days of their term. That might not be enough to help lesson the political blow for you, but the impact it can have on you, your energy, health and mental acuity over that time period may just be what our society needs to keep things together.
And that’s why I’ve got the perfect write-in candidate for you: sleep.
Let’s face it: this year had been really hard on too many levels to count. The stress, uncertainty, changing expectations of when “normal” returns again (whatever that means) and now an election that is upon us, it’s been a really hard year. How has all of this impacted your sleep? Probably quite a bit: According to the American Psychological Associations Stress in America survey this month, nearly 70% of all Americans say this election is getting to them and stressing them out.
My Vote: End 2 AM Stress
I’m proudly voting for more sleeping in the remaining months of the year, and into 2021 as well. I feel better when I get the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep, I’m more productive and focused the next day, and I’m healthier as well. If you want to write-in “better sleep” as your candidate of choice, you’d get my vote (*but please, vote in the traditional sense first).
Leading my party’s ticket is Mental Tranquility – 12 herbs that I’ve used quite successfully to sleep rather soundly since the last midterms. As a company, we voted in two sleep formulas in 2018:
- Mental Tranquility: For the 2 AM stressed sleeper (show of hands – “me”). No more tossing, turning, stewing and watching CSPAN to put you back to sleep – just a calm mind and spirit.
- Physical Tranquility: For the hot, restless sleeper. You might want to kick off the covers like you want to kick your opposing candidate, but when your stress is leading to feeling too hot at night, this is the formula for you.
Both formulas are incredible if you fall into one of the two categories, and neither contains melatonin which is many times over-dosed, leaving one feeling groggy – just herbs that have been used for hundreds of years. Moreover, both increase mental sharpness and clarity the next day, allowing you to stay focused when the news alerts that the results begin to inundate your phone.
Sleep More, You Win - Always
And the best part, with more sleep, you’re always the winner. Your immunity increases, you’re more energized, less stressed and you generally feel better about yourself and the world around you. And frankly, regardless of party affiliation, the world could use a little more of that right now.
And here’s a winning offer: use code SLEEP at check-out and enjoy free shipping on either of our sleep formulas. If nothing else, you'll want to recharge your batteries for 2024.
