Getting more sleep to get more things done seems counterproductive but for actress, host, model and entrepreneur Heart Evangelista, a good night's sleep should be part of people's self-care routine.
While most people have made some changes to their lifestyle to improve overall health and wellness through different self-care routines — whether it's a new fitness routine or investing in a good skin care regimen — one of the important (but often overlooked) aspects of a healthy lifestyle is having a good time to rest.
Sleep plays a very important role in one's health by healing and repairing of heart and blood vessels, supporting physical growth and development, as well as maintaining a responsive immune system. Getting some downtime at the end of the day is an essential process for physical restoration.
Experts said most adults need seven to nine hours of sleep per night and yet, Philippines is ranked as the fourth most sleep deprived country in the world, with more than 80 percent having experienced occasional sleeplessness.
Sleep deprivation may cause inability to think or concentrate, feeling low and out of sorts, and having poor temper, among other negative effects.
To combat these symptoms, Evangelista makes sure she gets deep and enough hours of sleep per night.
“After a long, busy day, I always look forward to relaxing and winding down. From eating my comfort meals, to doing my skincare, I do my night time routine to get rid of the bad juju. And at night, I cap it off with Vicks ZzzQuil Natura Sleep. I love having quiet moments to myself,” Evangelista said.
Vicks ZzzQuil Natura Sleep contains 1.6 mg melatonin per 2 servings. A 1-mg melatonin, when taken close to bedtime may help reduce the time to fall asleep. Its gummy form (in wildberry vanilla flavor) also helps in taking it without needing water.
“Part of a healthy lifestyle is having good rest and a healthy diet. Vicks ZzzQuil Natura Sleep is my bedtime secret because along with proper diet and regular exercise, it helps support my night time habits,” Evangelista finally said.
