Ensuring a good night’s sleep is important, especially for people who have diabetes, as too little sleep can negatively impact their blood sugar levels. An inadequate amount of sleep puts stress on the body and releases cortisol, a type of hormone that increases insulin resistance and blood sugar levels.
Here, we list some tips that you can try to help maintain optimal rest when managing diabetes.
1. Keep good sleep habits
The most important tip is: to have a regular sleep routine and sleep for 7 to 9 hours every day. It helps your body’s internal clock, known as the circadian rhythm, work at its best, promoting overall better sleep quality and a healthy body.
Another important thing is not to overdo naps. Naps should be kept relatively short and limited to the early afternoon. Napping any later is likely to affect your ability to fall asleep that night.
2. Turn off electronic devices before bedtime
Studies have found that not only can blue light exposure disrupt your sleep but affect your metabolism and increase your risk of obesity. It is recommended to turn off light sources, including your phone, TV, and computer, at least 30 minutes before bed. Keep your bedroom dark throughout the night, and you’ll sleep better.
3. Don’t drink alcohol before bed
Alcohol impairs the release of glucose into the bloodstream, thus affecting blood sugar levels. Not to mention, drinking too much before sleep might also cause frequent bathroom visits during the night. If you have to drink, do so in moderation and try to stop drinking four hours before bedtime.
4. Exercise during the day
If you do some physical activities during the day, it is more than likely that you will sleep better at night. Exercise can help you burn calories, maintain a healthy weight, and control diabetes better. Just 10 minutes of aerobic exercise can be beneficial.
5. Find ways to reduce stress
When stress becomes too much, it can affect your sleep. Stress causes the body’s nervous system to release cortisol and adrenaline, which can lead to tossing and turning and feelings of restlessness. Therefore, it’s important to find ways to reduce stress before sleep. Research has shown that mindfulness techniques, such as deep breathing, visualization, and meditation, can encourage better sleep.
6. Try Spooky2 Scalar
Besides the methods mentioned above, you can also try Spooky2 Scalar. It creates a positive scalar energy field that sends healing energy to your body. Simply turn on your Scalar unit, savor your time in the scalar field, and get relieved.
Moreover, you can combine Rife frequencies with scalar energy for better therapeutic effects. It transfers precise frequencies with scalar energy to manage your blood sugar levels and help with diabetes, thus helping you sleep better.
To do this, follow the instructions below:
Step 1: Correctly Place Spooky2 Scalar devices.
Step 2: Connect GeneratorX Pro to Spooky2 Scalar and tune Spooky2 Scalar.
Step 3: Open Spooky2 software. Go to the Presets tab and click Shell (Empty) Presets > Scalar > Spooky Scalar General (SS) – JW. Then go to the Programs tab and search “diabetes”, and you will see a series of programs. Double-click on the programs you need.
Step 4: Go to the Control tab and choose “Overwrite Generator.” Open a generator port and click the “Start” button. Step 5: Relax between the Transmitter and Receiver while the programs are running.
