We’ve all heard of ‘clean eating’ i.e. eating as many whole foods as possible, but now a new health trend, backed by Gwyneth Paltrow will have you rethinking how to up your wellness game during the midnight hours.
According to the actress and Goop founder, ‘clean sleeping’ is simply trying to get good, quality sleep on a consistent basis.
“The lifestyle I lead is based not just on clean eating, but also on clean sleeping: at least seven or eight hours of good, quality sleep—and ideally even 10,”
While 10 hours of sleep a night may seem unlikely with our busy lives, 7-9 hours per day, as recommended by The Sleep Council (for those between 18-65 years old) is important to strive for.
“Sleep plays such a powerful role in determining your appetite and energy levels that I believe it should be your first priority—even before you think about your diet” says Gwyneth Paltrow.
We’ve all experienced how a night or two of bad sleep can leave you feeling a little irritable; yet consistent bad sleep can have a more detrimental consequence on your health such as lowering your immune system or cognitive impairment.
Sleep helps your body repair and restore itself, so it is important to not only prioritise how much sleep you get, but to give yourself a clean, fresh and healthy sleep environment to help you catch enough quality ‘clean sleep’.
Improving your sleep environment can have a huge effect of the amount of time it takes to fall asleep and the quality of sleep you get, so it can be a serious investment in your health and well-being.
