Sleep. What a magical word! Growing up I never realized how much that one little word would mean to me one day. Now as a parent, it is pretty much the only thing that I think about. With work, children and other commitments, our hectic day to day routines, have become more and more about trying to fit everything into a 24 hours period and less about getting precious sleep.
Sleep is not about shutting your eyes and your brain for a few hours of rest, but rather it plays a vital role in our health and well being. Adequate sleep is a key part to a healthy lifestyle. Like good nutrition and exercises, sleep helps to benefit your heart, weight, mind and much more!
What happens when you don’t get enough sleep? It is estimate that over 40% of the population is having trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep. My DH is one of them. No matter how tired he is, how much exercise he does or what he does right before bed, he still has trouble sleeping. This results in feelings of sluggishness, exhaustion and irritability.
What if I told you you could have a cup of java before bed and sleep like a baby? Vancouver native and third generation coffee roaster was looking for away to create a coffee that his wife could drink without keeping her up all night. She had tried everything and even decaf after 3 pm will keep her up. He turned his house into a laboratory and created the most revolutionary thing to happen to coffee in decades and created a coffee that would help you sleep. Counting Sheep Coffee was born! Using a unique blend of Swiss Water Decaffeinated coffee and Valerian root, they created an all natural sleep aid.
Counting Sheep Coffee is available in two strengths; Forty Winks and the stronger dose, Lights Out. It is available in either pre-ground bags or K-cups and is very comparative to other coffees on the market. Available at retailers such as Bed, Bath and Beyond and Amazon, getting a hold of this sleeping aid is quick and easy.
We have tried many different natural products with DH to help him sleep, but nothing seemed to work. Since he enjoys a daily cup of coffee, we thought that this might be the ideal treatment. I loved that this product is Canadian and that it doesn’t contain any additives or medicinal ingredients. Its simple to use and tastes great. DH noted that it had a rich, bold flavour with a nutty undertone. It was the perfect beverage for before bed and it helped relax him into a good night sleep.
Next time you can’t sleep, remember the perfect way to start the day is also the perfect way to end it; Counting Sheep Coffee.
