Mindset Health Tip

Looking for more energy and recovery after Assessment Week? Check out this great article from Precision Nutrition about optimizing your SLEEP!

A relaxing environment is essential for a good night’s rest. People sleep better when their bedroom is optimized for comfort, light, and noise and temperature.

So I challenge you to experiment and redesign your sleep area in these two ways:

  • You can transform your home into a space of serenity and inspiration just by decluttering. In addition to helping you sleep, a soothing, restful environment can lead to mental clarity. (Hello, energy you’ve been missing!)

  • Redecorate your sleep environment. Once you’ve decluttered, consider setting up your bedroom for optimal sleep. You might want to adjust:

    • Light levels and quality: Dimmed or red/orange spectrum light (as opposed to bright or blue/green-spectrum light) can help promote sleep and relaxation. For some people, a night light adds a feeling of safety, making it easier to sleep.

    • Environmental temperature: In general, body temperature drops during sleep, so having a cool environment is considered sleep-promoting. However, some folks may find warmth more relaxing, and prefer a heated blanket or warm bath before bed. Again, go with what works for you (or your client).

    • Noise (and silence) levels: Some folks need silence to sleep best. Others find background sounds—like music, storm or songbird playlists, or white noise—more relaxing.

    • Tactile stimulation: How do you feel about flannel pajamas? A fluffy cat or dog? A body pillow or stuffed animal? A weighted blanket?

Try one, and see what works for you!

Functional Medicine Corner

There is a documentary called “Common Ground” that has recently been released and is showing in selected cities currently. This film discusses the movement of regenerative agriculture, or farming practices that allow the soil to not only maintain but improve its microbial diversity and nutrient density. The film also explores the possibility that regenerative farming can support our climate in a positive way. As the lead for the documentary states, “the film explores how regenerative agriculture can help heal the soil, our health and the planet.”

In addition, the organization who made the film has created an eBook with several resources to help us support local farmers, as well as make small changes in our daily lives to help support sustainable change in food production. (You can find the link here.) This includes maps with some local farmers who support these types of practices, helpful hints on what to look for when shopping, and even further information on how to improve our own food growing practices.

For more information on the documentary and the mission, and to watch the trailer, click here. There is currently a showing scheduled in Ann Arbor for anyone interested!

Does Juicy Leaf use organic fruits and vegetables?

What’s the difference between a juice and a smoothie?

  • The main difference is fiber. Most of the insoluble fiber is removed in the juicing process.
  • By taking the fiber out, you can pack more fruit & veggie nutrients into a juice than you can into a smoothie of the same size.
  • The lack of insoluble fiber allows your body to rapidly absorb the nutrients while expending minimal digestive effort.
  • Smoothies are made by pulverizing fruit/veggies with liquid in a blender. The insoluble fiber, which helps keep things moving through your system, is maintained in the process.

What are the benefits of juice?

  • Several servings of fruit & veg nutrition effortlessly absorbed without energy taxing digestion.
  • Easy way to incorporate more fruits and veg in diet than eating produce alone.
  • Boosts immunity and energy. Alkalizing, chronic illness prevention, helps aid in weight loss, clear skin, healthy hair.
