Ways To Sleep Better

Getting a good night’s sleep is important to some people. For me, a decent night’s (day for me right now) sleep is the difference between the nice me and a gremlin: less than nine hours and I turn into a monster... grrr. Guess that's why they call it beauty sleep :)

When it comes to sleep, everyone is different. Some people can get away with as little as four hours and others need up to 11. Both, and anything in between, is considered normal. Sleep-deprivation can leave you grumpy, irritable, forgetful, and groggy and has a major impact on the brain. Getting a good night’s sleep is important and has an impact on both your physical and mental well-being.
Here are some ways to sleep better:
  • Try a relaxing warm shower or bath – not too hot or this will have the opposite effect. You could also try some oils such as lavender to help relaxation.
  • Switch off the TV 30 minutes before you want to go to sleep.
  • If your mind is racing, try writing down what is bothering you and tackle it the next day.
  • Turn off and put down your mobile and don’t check any emails before going to sleep.
  • Have a warm milky drink or herbal tea but avoid any caffeine as this is a stimulant.
