Suffering from insomnia?
Insomnia, or sleeplessness, can take a real toll on your health and wellbeing, leaving you tired and irritable, or in extreme cases unable to function properly during the day.
It can strike at any age and sufferers can have difficulty falling asleep, can wake frequently during the night or early in the morning, and can often feel tired after sleep and not refreshed.
Insomnia can affect people in different ways, and while some may have trouble sleeping for a week or so during a stressful period in their life, others can suffer for months at a time.
As well as affecting your psychological state, sleep problems can also impact you physically, putting you at greater risk of complications like high blood pressure and diabetes. Fortunately, the Yantra Mat can help.
What causes insomnia?
Stress is a major cause of insomnia. Perhaps you're worried about work, or the health of a loved one. Or maybe you're having money problems and they're keeping you awake at night.
Underlying mental health problems like depression and anxiety can also play a part, as can physical conditions such as arthritis, heart disease and asthma.
If you smoke or drink alcohol frequently, your sleep patterns can suffer, while certain medicines such as hormone replacement therapy and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories may contribute to insomnia too.
Whatever the cause, sleeping difficulties can affect your life in a number of ways, and though it can be tempting to reach for the sleeping pills, there are better, more natural ways to cure insomnia.
How can the Yantra Mat help?
The Yantra Mat relies on acupressure to boost blood flow and promote relaxation. It features 8,820 calibrated spikes distributed among 210 flower shapes that apply even pressure to all of your body's acupressure points.
Lie down gently on your Yantra Mat and you'll notice a warming sensation as your circulation increases and your body begins to release feel-good hormones that fight stress and leave you feeling beautifully revitalised.
You can lie on your back to let the spikes stimulate the acupressure points along your spine, or on your front to let the Yantra Mat works its magic on your respiratory muscles, enabling you to breathe deeply and relax more easily.
The Yantra Mat can also be used on a chair, making it ideal for the office, or you can roll it up and lie on it like a pillow to loosen tension in the neck and jaw before you go to bed at night.
Tackle insomnia with the Yantra Mat
Use your Yantra Mat as a sleeping aid for just 20 minutes a day, ideally in the evening to wind down and ease away the pressures of the day and you could notice a big difference in your sleeping patterns.
Available in three different colours, it comes with a stylish carry bag so you can enjoy your Yantra moment wherever you are. Often sleeping in an unfamiliar bed can prompt insomnia, so why not take your Yantra mat on your travels?
