Clean eating is old news

By Jessica Chandra  June 13th, 2017

We all know we feel better if we’ve had a good night’s sleep. We’re less irritable, we feel perky—we may even stick to one coffee instead of two. Now Gwyneth Paltrow has declared ‘clean sleeping’ the health trend of 2017. In a piece published on the Daily Mail, excerpted from the new book Goop Clean Beauty, Gwyneth wrote, “The lifestyle I lead is based not just on clean eating, but also on clean sleeping: at least seven or eight hours of good, quality sleep—and ideally even ten.

“Sleep plays such a powerful role in determining your appetite and energy levels that I believe it should be your first priority—even before you think about your diet.”

“Clean sleeping’ as a concept is basically about making sure you get enough good quality sleep a night. No, not just regular sleep, it must be good quality.”

 Gwyneth Paltrow’s top 5 tips for sleeping right

— Yoga nidra aka meditating before bed, even if it means using an app or website with a guided meditation to help.

— Banning midnight snacks, and keeping a “regular 12-hour fasting window”—so if you finish dinner at 9 p.m., don’t have breakfast until 9 a.m. the next morning.

— Massaging trigger points on the back of your head just before bed.

— Giving yourself a foot massage with a thick moisturising cream.

— Sleeping with a copper pillow, because “studies have shown that pillowcases infused with fine strands of copper oxide could help to prevent the formation of, and even reduce, wrinkles.”

So there you have it—five, Gwyneth-approved ways to make sure you’re snoozing enough.
