For many people, getting a good night’s sleep can be a struggle. Did you know that insomnia affects up to 70 million Americans every year and there are more than 80 different sleep disorders, including sleep apnea? Stress, lack of exercise, too much caffeine or too many late nights are just a few factors that can knock anyone’s circadian rhythms off track, resulting in a prolonged lack of sleep. Finding safe, healthy ways to help us get our circadian rhythms back on track is key, which is why we’re sharing a few ways to help you get started:

One way to help maintain your circadian rhythms is to lower your body’s core temperature before bed. A lower body temperature increases melatonin production, also known as the sleep hormone, allowing you to relax into a more restful, deep sleep. Taking a hot bath an hour or two before bed helps move the heat out of the core of your body to the surface of your body, resulting in a lower core temperature.

In addition to a hot bath, steam showers are an excellent way to relax both physically and mentally to improve your sleeping habits. Steam therapy has been known to promote overall health and well-being and has many benefits including improving circulation, relaxing sore muscles, opening up sinus passages and more. ThermaSol steam showers provide a multi-sensory experience allowing you to de-stress and relax in comfort. From state-of-the-art steam essentials to multiple added features like tranquility scenes, music and chromatherapy, each ThermaSol steam shower infuses relaxation into your routine–allowing you to get a better night’s sleep.

Aromatherapy is also a wonderful aid in improving your circadian rhythms. Essential oils have been said to offer an array of therapeutic benefits, from improving certain physical health symptoms, to promoting relaxation. Adding aromatherapy oils to your steam shower can transform an ordinary activity into a luxury experience.  Add two to four drops of your favorite essential oil to any ThermaSol steamhead reservoir and breathe in the natural power of their essence, providing deep relaxation for the perfect night’s sleep.
