A few hints and tips for you if you sometimes have trouble sleeping

Help to promote natural sleep and stay asleep longer

We all have trouble sleeping sometimes; here’s some handy tips to try:

  • When you wake up, open the curtains and let proper day light onto your face.
  • Spend more time outside during daylight. Try to take breaks or exercising outside in sunlight.
  • When it’s time to sleep, make sure the room is dark. The darker it is, the better you’ll sleep.
  • Avoid bright lights before bed, use low-wattage bulbs in your bedroom.
  • When it’s time for bed turn off your phone, television and computer. Try listening to music or audio books instead.
  • Have a warm bath, not too hot.
  • Use my sleep roller remedy on wrists and behind ears, breath slowly and calmly.
  • Avoid drinking too many liquids in the evening. Drinking lots of water, juice, tea etc means you will wake up in the night to use the toilet.
  • Go to bed and get up at the same time each day; you will feel more refreshed than if you sleep the same number of hours at different times.
  • Set a regular bedtime; choose a time when you normally feel tired, so that you don’t toss and turn.
  • If you find yourself getting sleepy way before your bedtime, get up and do something: ring a friend, wash up or get everything ready for the next day.
  • Stay away from big meals within two hours of bed. Fatty foods take a lot of work for your stomach to digest and may keep you up.
  • Avoid alcohol before bed. While it may make you fall asleep faster, alcohol reduces your sleep quality, waking you up later in the night.
  • Cut down on caffeine; it can cause sleep problems up to ten hours after drinking it. So no more caffeine after lunch.

Hope you find this useful. Everyone feels better after a good night’s sleep.
