Sleeping Well?

Lack of quality sleep can be a big problem. It affects your mood, health, energy levels, and ability to concentrate as you go about your day.

So, how can you make sure you get a good night's sleep every night? Here are some essential tips...

# Establish a good sleep routine, and stick to it. Aim to go to sleep at a similar time every night.

# Avoid eating or drinking too late at night. If your body is busy digesting and processing food and drink when you go to bed, it will affect the quality of your sleep.

# Wind down before you sleep. Let go of the day's issues and worries. Read a book for a while or listen to some relaxing music or nature sounds.

# Switch off your mobile phone, computer and television. If possible, remove these from your bedroom. All those electrical frequencies will keep you 'plugged in' and will impact your sleep.

# Make sure your room is well ventilated. If possible, sleep with the window slightly (and securely) open so that fresh air can circulate.

# Bathe in soothing, relaxing essential oils before you go to bed. Just a few drops of lavender will help you relax.

# Before your head hits the pillow, make sure you're cosy and comfortable. Check the room temperature is okay.

Also, make sure there are no underlying health or emotional issues that are causing you sleep problems. In particular, stress can have an impact on sleep so if you suspect this is the case, see your health practitioner and get the additional support you need.

Sleep well and sweet dreams!
