Here’s What You Need to Know About Liveli

Nutrition
Personal Growth

Real talk: I have an intense (and notorious) relationship with caffeine—specifically coffee. Even when I cut back, I keep coming back for more. From battling that dreaded midday slump to trying to fall asleep, my caffeine addiction has always affected my “healthier” lifestyle... and my mood. So, when a sample package from Liveli was recently sent to my office, I was intrigued. 

First thought: Great branding.
Second thought: Will they actually do anything for my brain, body, and sleep? 

Being in the wellness industry (and having a husband who is all about researching natural supplements), brain-boosting nootropics are always a topic of conversation. I’ve tried a few different, natural pills to get me energized and help me catch a few Zzzz’s but so far, nothing has helped curb my caffeine addiction and hit the pillow *extra* hard. With a few friends who swear by Liveli, I decided to give their All in System nootropic trio shipment a try for a month to see if they could improve my wellness routine.
 

Sleep Peacefulli™

These supplements have had the biggest influence on my every day. I’ve tried everything from melatonin to essential oils and CBD oil, but getting a solid nights sleep without feeling groggy and irritable is virtually impossible. I tried Sleep Peacefulli,™and I’ve seriously never slept so well. To be honest, I am obsessed. Featuring ingredients like Valerian Root, Chamomile and GABA, I take Sleep Peacefulli™ about an hour before bed when I’m ready to disconnect, unwind, and drift into a dream-like state. The best part about these magical green pills besides being well-rested? I don’t wake up with that sleep supplement hangover feeling. I am alert and aware the moment my feet hit the floor. Plus, as a traveler with a ton of redeye flights, these pills are my not-so-secret supplement for getting rest on those long, uncomfortable flights.

Restore Dayli™

A natural skeptic about supplements that increase cognitive function and energy, I started taking Restore Dayli™ to see if I could cut down on my morning vitamin routine–and all the cabinet clutter. Packed with vitamins (like Vitamin D and Vitamin B12) and minerals—plus botanicals and nootropics—I started to feel naturally more energized within just a few days. Taken after my post-morning workout with a meal, I also noticed my overall mood improving! A more natural way to digest energy to kickstart my entire day, Liveli’s “super vitamin” continues to supercharge my routine. Balance achieved!

Focus Clearli™

Described as “a nootropic performance activator,” these pills are all about helping you stay alert, focused, and on top of your game. With a blend of ingredients to energize the mind and body—like Green Tea Leaf Extract, B12, and Korean Ginseng Root Extract—the ultimate test comes in the form of getting past that mid-day slump without desperately needing a sip of coffee. I found (and continue to find) myself more naturally alert and focused without needed anything extra to get through my busy schedule. I feel sharp and steady with zero no caffeine shakes. 
 

Liveli’s nootropics have improved my wellness routine by helping me fall asleep easier and naturally boosting my energy all day long. These All in System pill packs are my daily superpower secret to success!

4 Yoga Poses for a Better Night’s Sleep

Yoga

Expert Advice

We’ve all had sleepless nights. It’s the worst! Watching the wee hours of morning tick away. Wishing we could slip into a restful sleep before our alarm goes off . The frustrating feeling of knowing exactly how many minutes there are before you need to be up. Then, struggling through a heavy relentless morning filled with self-medicating coffee runs, and a tired, snappy version of yourself dragging through the day. 

There’s no one miracle cure for insomnia because there are so many reasons for not being able to sleep. Many people, however, find relief by curbing stress right before bed. One way to do that is with a few choice yoga stretches that mellow you out by encouraging your Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) to ignite your bodies “rest and digest” cycles. This is the opposite of the “fight or flight” system that helps you race away from oncoming tigers, or other more urban “dangers.”  

Here are a few shapes that calm the nervous system and decrease adrenaline in the body to help you rest and ultimately sleep better. 
 

Legs-Up-the-Wall

This is a super simple way to relax right before bed, or even from the comfort of your bed. Pushing your legs up the wall helps move the lymph and blood out of your feet using gravity, this, in turn, means your heart doesn’t need to work as hard to pump it back up. Thus, things get a little quieter in your cardiovascular system helping to soothe your body into a sense of softness.

Supported Bridge (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana)

This shape uses the same idea as Legs-Up-the-Wall. It calms by inverting your hips above your heart, but it also stretches your neck and chest open for tension relief. The muscles can open and let go of anything they are holding onto. It also opens your lungs and diaphragm, which allows you to breathe more deeply, and that oxygen is a calmant.

Child’s Pose (Balasana)

Folding forward in Child’s Pose works a little differently. It still opens the lungs (from the upper back), but it requires you to turn inwards. You could bring your hands by your sides for a more restorative version of the shape, and resting your head to one side or the other is often more comfortable. Alternatively, try resting your forehead on a block or the floor, and use that surface to massage the space between your eyebrows. This triggers an acupressure point between your eyebrows that stimulates the pineal gland to encourage a melatonin response. Melatonin is the hormone our bodies produce when it gets dark that tells us to go to sleep!

Reclined Bound Angle (Supta Baddha Konasana)

Use a couple pillows for this one! Pop one under your knees, one under your head or upper back, along your spine, and under your hands.Then, get ready to  fall asleep there. Let everything get heavy and drippy and start to think about that weighted sensation in your feet, slowly bring your attention up your body making each body part heavier and heavier as you go. This is a version of Yoga Nidra Meditation and it is extremely relaxing—but you must go slowly. 


So, there you have it! A few ideas from yoga, science, and acupressure to help you get some much-deserved ZZZ’s.
