Have you ever felt that even though you had a good breakfast, or had a quick workout, you still feel like a zombie during the day because you have not been able to get enough rest recently?
There is no surprise in this. While most of us have made some changes to our lifestyle to improve our overall health and wellness through different self-care routines, whether it’s a new fitness routine or investing in a good skin care regimen, one of the important (but often overlooked) aspects of a healthy lifestyle are having a good time to rest.
Considering that the Philippines is ranked as the fourth most sleep-deprived country in the world, with more than 80% having experienced occasional sleeplessness, there’s a big chance you’ve experienced the problems of lack of sleep – the inability to think or concentrate, feeling low and out of sorts, unable to do what you want to do, and enjoy what life has to offer. You might even find yourself a little snappy with others or being short-fused. More than 50% of Filipinos sleep less than 7 hours a night, which means there are a lot of us weighed down by not having enough Zzzs.
Sleep plays a very important role in one’s health, having been involved in the healing and repairing of your heart and blood vessels, supporting physical growth and development, as well as maintaining a responsive immune system. Getting some downtime at the end of the day is an essential process for physical restoration.
That’s why taking care of your body – both physically and mentally – also means giving your body time to recharge. After a long day at work, take some time to recuperate. Exercising, eating healthy, and getting enough rest will help you keep your health in check and enjoy life more.
Along with a proper diet and a healthy lifestyle, start your day #NaturallyFeelingZzzuper with the help of a new bedtime partner — Vicks ZzzQuil Natura Sleep! This new hero of the night contains 1.6 mg of melatonin per 2 servings of gummy. 1 mg melatonin when taken close to bedtime may help reduce the time to fall asleep. It also comes in the gummy form in wildberry vanilla flavor that’s tasty without needing water, which means you don’t even have to get up from bed.
