Day 7 – Do you wake up to pee in the middle of the night?
Waking up in the middle of the night to pee might be common but that doesn’t mean it’s normal. Waking up between 2-3am can often correlate with a drop in blood sugar from eating too many carbs before bed or not enough protein and fat according to your Metabolic Type.
When blood sugar drops, your body releases cortisol to bring it back up which is like getting a shot of adrenaline giving you a rush of energy, and what’s the first thing everyone does when they wake up… pee!
Getting a solid night’s rest is essential for balancing hormones, mood, energy and overall health. You can balance your blood sugar through the night by:
🍪 Avoiding sugar and alcohol before bed
🥖 Reducing your carbohydrate intake at night
🥑 Eating a snack or dinner higher in protein and fat
😴 Being asleep by 10pm consistently to regulate your circadian rhythm
You can still join the #10by10sleepchallenge!!!
The goal of the challenge is to be asleep by 10pm ten nights in a row. Sleep is something everyone can do that doesn’t require any special foods, tools or resources, and with most places being shut down for #quarantine and #socialdistancing there’s no excuse to stay up, so why not get to bed early and take this time to boost your health.
Everyone who participates in the challenge will be entered to win an assortment of essential oils to promote rest with some tips as well as a free 30 minute sleep consultation from Leslie at Peace x Piece Wellness Coaching.
Here’s how you can participate to win:
👉 Post proof of being in bed by 10pm each day in your feed or story
(example: screenshot a sleep tracker, clock or selfie with a timestamp)
👉 Tag me in your daily feed or story post
👉 Use the hashtag #10by10sleepchallenge in your post
👉 Optional: Tag friends in your post for extra entry points!
A winner will be selected by Friday, April 10th.
