Quite a lot of us have long and rigorous working hours. And be it stress or odd working hours, it has been found that the average duration of sleep has been gradually decreasing. For the amount of work we do everyday, 6 to 7 hours of sleep is never enough.
It might not seem like a big deal in our day-to-day lives, but the eventual effect can be quite damaging for the body. Coffee might come in handy to snap you out of your lethargy but that is hardly a solution.
One might feel very active during the day, but not having at least 8 hours of sleep every night can be detrimental. European Heart Journal reviewed 15 medical cases conducted on 4,75,000 people and found out that people with insufficient sleep are at 48% more risk of suffering a coronary heart disease.
Now, the research also showed that people with an average sleep of 9 hours or more are at 38% more risk of heart diseases. In short, what the research says is to maintain a balance. Eight hours is gold.
So here, mother nature is all set to rescue us yet again. Mixing two simple ingredients will ensure a very good night's sleep. It enables the body to relax and prepare for the next 24 rigorous hours.
All you have to do is mix 5 tsp of raw honey and 1 tsp of pink Himalayan sea salt. You can make the concoction in large quantities and store it in a jar as well; but remember to keep the ratio intact.
Before going to sleep, put a little of this mixture under your tongue and let the magic unfold.
If you are wondering how this works then the salt contains more than 80 minerals and elements and helps the body to recuperate from a tiresome day. Honey as you would know, has glucose, which supplies energy to the body's cell.
Just one step can ensure that a lot of diseases are kept at bay.
