Sleep Better with a Sip of Spritz

March: A Month of Celebrations, Health, and Serenity

March isn’t just about Mother’s Day and Easter; it’s also a time to cherish our well-being. In our previous post, we delved into Nutrition and Hydration Week, but today, our spotlight is on World Sleep Day, celebrated on March 17, 2023, because sleep is essential for health.

Unraveling World Sleep Day

World Sleep Day, established by the World Sleep Society, is a global initiative to elevate the significance of quality sleep. The creators of this holiday believed that sleep was an often-overlooked aspect of personal health and well-being that deserved recognition.

The Power of Sleep

The UK’s Mental Health Foundation asserts that sleep is an “essential and involuntary process” necessary for effective functioning. Sleep not only rejuvenates our bodies but also restores and repairs our brains.

A survey by YouGov conducted last year revealed some intriguing insights into sleep:

– 12% of respondents struggled to fall asleep every night.

– 13% slept for less than six hours per night.

– 68% often woke up feeling tired.

– 36% turned to alcohol as a sleep aid.

Alcohol and Sleep: A Complex Relationship

Many respondents admitted to using alcohol as a sleep aid. While alcohol can induce relaxation and sleepiness due to its central nervous system depressant properties, it’s also linked to disrupted sleep patterns and diminished sleep quality. When alcohol lingers in your system, it can reduce the time spent in the crucial Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep stage, leaving you feeling less refreshed upon waking. Additionally, alcohol’s diuretic effect may lead to nighttime bathroom trips, further disrupting your sleep.

Enhancing Sleep Hygiene with Citizen Spritz

For those seeking better sleep hygiene, the advice is to moderate alcohol intake and alternate with water or non-alcoholic drinks to prevent dehydration.

With their food and drink development background, our co-founders, Mark and Mike, created an array of delightfully complex non-alcoholic spritzes at Citizen Spritz. These pair beautifully with sparkling water, ensuring your hydration without sacrificing flavour.

Our launch range of aperitifs boasts four distinctive flavours:

– Bitter Orange: Zesty and vibrant

– Cool Lime: Minty and invigorating

– Passion Fruit: Sweet and tangy

 Pink Grapefruit: Sharp and intense
