Top 5 Tips To Sleeping Well
1. Digitally switch off
1 -2 hours from when you intend to go to sleep, try to switch off from using your mobile,
tablet, PC and TV. The blue light on these gadgets can be disruptive preventing you from drifting off into that perfect slumber.
2. Take regular exercise
Regular exercise can help you sleep better and stop you feeling sleepy during the day. But be careful not to do moderate to vigorous exercise too close to bedtime as this can sometimes affect your sleep quality.
3. Review your eating and drinking habits
In the hours just before bedtime try to avoid eating a heavy meal or drinking too many fluids, in particular alcohol and caffeinated drinks.
For some people a light snack may help promote sleep. See our recommended Coconut and Banana smoothie recipe
in our featured blog.
4. Take time to wind down
In the 2 hours before bedtime try to switch off from whatever causes you worry and stress. Take a warm bath, read a book or partake in a hobby. Allow yourself time to mentally and physically unwind through practicing relaxation techniques at home, light stretching, deep breathing and peaceful visualization.
5. Improve your sleep environment
Keep your bedroom dark, cool and quiet. The summer heat doesn't always help you maintain this so look to invest in a blackout blind and some ear plugs.
