Improved Sleep

Sleep

Experiment with the following tips to find the ones that work best to improve your sleep and leave you feeling productive, mentally sharp, emotionally balanced, and full of energy all day long.


What you can do

  1. Try to go to sleep and get up at the same time everyday
  2. Get as much natural sunlight as possible
  3. Try and move intelligent throughout the day. Walk tall lifting your head the the sun as much as possible. Avoid the seated position as much as possible.
  4. Limit caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, and big meals at night
  5. Take time for relaxing activities before sleep
  6. Create a calm and restful sleep environment

    Getting in sync with your body’s natural sleep-wake cycle, or circadian rhythm, is one of the most important strategies for sleeping better. If you keep a regular sleep-wake schedule you’ll feel much more refreshed and energised than if you sleep the same number of hours at different times, even if you only alter your sleep schedule by an hour or two.

 

Sleep
Try to go to sleep and get up at the same time every day.
 This helps set your body’s internal clock and optimise the quality of your sleep. Choose a bed time when you normally feel tired, so that you don’t toss and turn. If you’re getting enough sleep, you should wake up naturally without an alarm. If you need an alarm clock, you may need an earlier bedtime.

If you keep a regular sleep-wake schedule you’ll feel much more refreshed and energised than if you sleep the same number of hours at different times, even if you only alter your sleep schedule by an hour or two.

Mataip Yoga helps speed up your metabolic rate,  elevates body temperature, and stimulates the petuitary glands secreting calming hormones and opiates. 

Mataip Yoga will improve your sleep quality due to deeper Yogic breathing to calm the mind and nervous system.

Try to finish moderate to vigorous workouts at least four hours before bedtime. If you’re still experiencing sleep difficulties, move your workouts even earlier. Relaxing, 

Be aware of what you eat and how you react to certain foods near to bedtime.
Do your best to limit caffeine especially after noon. Caffeine can stimulate your adrenal glands some twelve hour after consumption. 
Avoid smoking.
A light meal may help some body types sleep better. 
Some people may sleep better after a a light snack such as nuts seeds and berries. 

Alcohol can disrupt sleep causing imbalances in blood sugar levels through the night. 
Remain aware to many liquids before bed time may have you up and down throughout the night with trips to the bathroom.

Avoid spicy and acidic foods before bedtime that may cause heart burn.

Book into as many Mataip Yoga sessions as possible to ensure a deeper sleep.

Salad Awareness

Mataip yoga classes Bradford

Bagged salad can fuel the growth of food-poisoning bugs like Salmonella and make them more dangerous, a study says.

University of Leicester scientists said the moist environment combined with nutrients leaching out of chopped leaves created the perfect breeding ground for bacteria.

The researchers said they were shocked at the way the bacteria thrived, even in the fridge.

They advised people to eat bagged salad on the day they bought it.

Despite their wholesome nature, fresh green leaves and salad foods are often involved in food poisoning.

An outbreak that affected more than 2,000 people across Europe in 2011 was traced back to bean sprouts and this year, officials in England traced an outbreak that killed two people back to bags of rocket leaves.

Mataip food

Studies have shown that salad can carry bacteria, but the research team showed the bag made things much worse.

Bags are often moist to help keep the salad crisp and fresh and the plants have often been chopped into individual leaves for convenience.

The study showed sugars, proteins and minerals escaped from the cut leaves into the water in the bag.

“That’s a reasonable amount of nutrients if you’re a bacterium,” said researcher Dr Primrose Freestone.

The study, published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology, showed that an initial contamination of 100 Salmonella bacteria would increase to 100,000 within five days.

“That’s more than an infectious dose,” Dr Freestone said.

The solution going forward is more awareness, purchase as fresh as possible and wash thoroughly before serving.
 
Remember to eat on the day of purchase.  Advisable to keep up your serving of green produce to keep your Calcium Magnesium intake at Optimal levels.

What Is Yoga Good For

MATAIP Ltd / Wellness Foundation : Call : 07790024776 Yorkshire's No.1 for all your Yoga and Pilates requireements.

Historically yoga was more than just a method of teaching; it was a way of life. You dedicated yourself to a lifestyle and culture that surpassed meditation techniques and included healthy eating habits, bathing habits, social interaction and work.  Its philosophy is rooted in a physical culture of health and well-being that is still emphasised today at yoga retreats and explains why over 15 million people in the world now practise this ancient tradition.

Every yoga asana (pose) has a different name and includes standing postures, seated twists, backbends, arm balances, inversions and core holds.  The downward facing dog for example, is in itself said to calm the brain, energise the body, improve digestion, strengthen arms and legs and be therapeutic for high blood pressure.  Whilst these benefits come as a given with most postures, the practise of yoga as a whole provides many more benefits than you might think…

8 Reasons Why Yoga is So Good For You:

1.Lowers stress and improves your mood

Some yoga methods use specific meditation techniques, which focus the mind on your breathing to quieten the constant ‘mind chatter’, relieves stress and allow you to feel relaxed. Practising these breathing techniques on a yoga and meditation retreat can also boost oxygen levels to the brain, leaving you feeling happier and more content with everyday life.

2. Boosts confidence

Aside from the uplifting spiritual values, the act of meditation can actually boost your confidence. The process works by releasing tension from your mind, so that you can feel confident about your physical body. Without any forms of anxiety, you are able to establish an internal connection with yourself. This is consequently reflected in your perception of others and will help to better your relationships by improving compassion and awareness.

3. Lowers the risk of injury

Exercise such as running is usually a series of rapid, forceful movements, which means that effort is at a maximum and there is a higher risk of injury and increased muscle tension. Often, strenuous exercise also engages an imbalance of opposing muscle groups, whereas yoga concentrates on balancing this activity. Unite your body and mind on a yoga and fitness holiday which will allow to combine more intense workouts with low-impact yoga.

4. Helps you lose weight

Being overweight is a sign that there are imbalances in your everyday life and one major contributor to weight gain is excess stress.  Practising yoga enables you to bring a deep sense of relaxation to your body and your mind, helping you to de-stress and allowing you to lose weight naturally.

How Yoga Helps Aging

5. Increases flexibility

People often say that they are not flexible enough to do yoga.  The truth is, it doesn’t matter how tight your muscles are as yoga asanas works by safely stretching your muscles and help you to practise it further.  Moreover, yoga also stretches other soft tissue in the body such as ligaments and tendons, increasing the range of motion in the joints and allowing you to move around more freely.

6. Improves muscle tone and strength

Many yoga asanas have a profound effect on your upper body strength, such as the downward and upward dog, whilst the plank focuses on your core. Likewise, standing poses strengthen your upper leg muscles and lower back. Essentially any pose will strengthen an area of the body if it is practised in the right way, without putting too much stress on specific muscle groups.

7. Benefits breathing and lowers blood pressure

If you practise yoga consistently, your lung capacity will increase as a result of the deep breathing process. This will then have a positive effect on more intense sports that you might be a part of, increasing your stamina and endurance. Furthermore, meditation and calming yoga asanas slow down your heart rate which in turn lowers blood pressure and have also been linked with improving the immune system and lowering cholesterol.

10 Ways To Apply Yoga In Your Daily Life

 

8. Improves your posture

By practising yoga you maintain a healthier weight, become more flexible and improve your muscle tone and strength. You will find that your posture will greatly improve because of this. Your abdominals and back muscles can now fully support your weight and you will be able to sit and stand tall, preventing niggling injuries, aches and pains.

The beauty of yoga is that it can be practiced pretty much anywhere, on your own or with other yoga enthusiasts.  If you have been inspired to give yoga a go there is no better place to try it than on our amazing yoga holiday
