5 Handy Tips for Great Sleep

April 23, 2015 2 min read

It is very rare to find someone who constantly gets their required amount of sleep each night.  Most of the time we hear people complaining about how they only got 3-4 hours of sleep and sometimes it even becomes a competition on who slept less.  However, when you do find that person that constantly gets 8 hours of sleep you also find that they have healthy habits that carry with them throughout the remainder of their day.  Here are 5 moves to copy from avid sleepers that will help you get in the groove of logging 6-8 hours every night. 1) Exercise early.  Research suggests that working out in the morning can lead to better sleep in the evenings.  When you workout your heart rate gets elevated, you are secreting hormones and releasing endorphins.  When this happens in the evening it can take a longer amount of time to wind down, therefore causing you to not fall asleep as quickly. 2) Take Omega 3s.  One Oxford University study found that having higher levels of omega-3s is associated with more restful sleep.  The correlation is due to the increased production of the sleep hormone melatonin 3) Consume less caffeine.  The Academy of Sleep Medicine research suggests taht caffeine consumed up to six hours before bedtime can cut your sleep time by one hour. 4) Eat lighter at night: Studies suggest that eating a diet high in saturated fat before bed can disrupt your body's natural sleep wake cycle and make it harder to fall asleep.  Opt for foods that promote sleep like Greek yogurt and walnuts instead.j 5) Turn off Electronics:  Experts agree that the blue light emitted for our electronic gadgets energize us and tap our bodies production of the hormone melatonin.  Put those cell phones, iPhones, kindles, and all electronics away at least one hour before bed.

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
