In this video, I continue with my discussion of the 2nd major cause of sub-optimal sleep, Physiological Activation (PA).
PA refers to when our brain and body are too revved up to sleep. When our sympathetic nervous system (think stress or fight-flight system) is activated.
In this video, I review more ways to reduce Physiological Activation to improve your sleep, including the best type of evening exercise, how to reduce your core body temperature (which is essential to sleep), and the potential of lavender oil to help us relax and sleep.
If you are a teen, be sure to note the warning about the use of lavender oil at this stage in your life.
