Our recommendation of daily supplements:

Daily supplements do not only include vitamins and minerals, we at 50andme believe that these 3 routines are as important as your daily intake of your essential fatty acids, collagen and vitamin D….

  1. Sleep

Important to be aware that a lack of sleep can have an influence on your metabolism, hormones, and immune system.

Keep daily snooze to a limit of 20 minutes if needed

Stay off your phone for at least an hour before bed time. Blue light — which electronic devices like smartphones and computers emit in large amounts — is the worst in this regard. Install an app that blocks blue light on your smartphone. These are available for both iPhones and Android models.

Studies have found that we sleep best at 20 degrees Celsius – try to keep your bedroom temperature regulated.

And of course our favorite before bedtime is a long relaxing bath, try to avoid the glass of wine and stick to a camomile tee or Higher Living Organic Sweet Dreams tea from Woolies

  1. Exercise

Exercise relieves stress, When stressed, your body releases more stress hormones than necessary. This can impair the quality and duration of your sleep.

Exercise tyre you out; the more active you are, the more your body pushes you to sleep at night. Activity increases your sleep drive

Exercising outside in the sunlight which helps your body establish a good sleep-wake cycle. It tells your body when to be alert and when to wind down.

  1. Meditation

When you turn off the lights and lay down in your bed at night, do you find your mind buzzing with thoughts of the day, and plans for tomorrow? If you struggle with “turning your brain off”, you may find yourself feeling restless and unable to sleep. Fortunately, meditation is one way to quiet your thoughts and fight insomnia. Meditation increases the natural melatonin levels to help with more restful sleep.
