Need help catching those Z’s? A quality magnesium supplement could help you fall asleep faster. It’s entirely natural, it’s found in many of the healthy foods you already eat and it comes in supplement form to help your body achieve an ideal state of rest when it just can’t seem to relax on its own.
The Deets: Magnesium boasts several health benefits for the human body, from bone health to nerve and muscle function. When it comes to sleep specifically, it can help us feel relaxed before bedtime without inducing a state of sedation like many sleeping pills do. Your body also needs magnesium to ensure that 300 enzymes function properly, and some of those are directly connected to the brain’s natural production of melatonin, which is linked to the quality of your sleep.
The Bottom Line: If you’re sick of lying awake in bed for hours at the beginning of the night, consider this natural remedy to your sleeplessness. It’s a very low-risk option for solving a highly important problem. Yay, magnesium! [Swirled]

You can jog, walk, do some bodyweight strength-training moves or practice some yoga. It all helps! [Swirled]
Career + Finance
You can score some extra cash by using side hustle apps like Amazon Flex. You’ll get paid between $18 and $25 for delivering Amazon packages in your area. Bonus: You have the flexibility to set your own schedule and ditch the gig whenever you want. Just know that you have to own a smartphone and a car or a bike to apply, and landing the job requires a background check. [Swirled]
Did You Know? Setting up a separate savings account at a bank that’s different than what you use for your checking account could be the trick to maintaining a killer savings.

Don’t Miss: Here’s How To Eat Like A Local In Honolulu
Adventure junkies need to check out Victoria Falls in Zambia to swim in The Devil’s Pool. You can swim out to the pool, which you have to do without a rope or any other assistance. Once you’re at the edge, the only thing holding you back from falling to your death (about 355 feet) is a submerged lip of rock. Is your heart thumping yet? [Swirled]
Deal Of The Day: Experience the New Zealand jungle just 15 minutes from Auckland at a glamping Airbnb. Two guests can embrace the wild for $90 a night. There are 3,500 square yards of surrounding wildlife, which is called “bush” by local Kiwis. You can actually hike all the way to the nearby black sand beach where there’s a yacht club and a swimming spot. [Swirled]
