Simple tips for a good night’s sleep
A bad night’s sleep can set you up for a bad day, but with some simple changes to your bedtime routine, you can enjoy sweet dreams and wake up feeling refreshed. Here’s how to wind down and relax before bedtime to help yourself drift off.
Switch caffeine for chamomile
Caffeinated drinks are the enemy of a good night’s sleep, so try relaxing with a cup of chamomile tea instead. Chamomile is naturally calming, and is perfect when you need some bedtime tranquility.
Read a book not your phone
Blue light from phone, tablet and laptop screens can make you feel more alert and awake, right when you want to feel calm. Instead of scrolling through Instagram, try reading a book instead. As your eyes get tired, you’ll find yourself slowly dozing off, just don’t forget to mark your page.
Wind down in the water
A hot bath makes your body temperature rise, before it drops again when you’re out of the water. This drop in temperature will make you feel sleepy. To feel extra relaxed, add in a few drops of lavender oil, which soothes aching muscles and can help relieve stress.
Try a natural supplement
If you find that you struggle to wind down after a busy or stressful day, there are supplements that can help. RelaxOn is the perfect supplement to take as part of your bedtime routine.
And if you still can’t sleep
Don’t lie in bed worrying and watching the clock slowly tick. Get up and do something else, like getting a drink of water or emptying the dishwasher, and you will find that once you stop focusing on falling asleep, you will feel sleepier and drift off much more easily.
