Top Tips For A Good Night's Sleep

Bedtime Routine 

Whether your routine involves sipping a caffeine free herbal tea whilst reading a good book or having a relaxing warm bath soak before slipping into clean sheets there are many ways to create positive self care rituals to help you fall asleep more quickly and sleep more deeply. Try going  to bed at the same time most evenings. Start your routine so you don't have to rush it to meet your chosen bedtime. Regularity has been found to have many benefits when it comes to the quality of sleep achieved.

Avoid Caffeine and Alcohol

Caffeine, alcohol and certain foods can impact how quickly people can fall asleep and can also  cause you to sleep more lightly meaning you wont get as much deep, restorative sleep as you should. Avoid consuming tea, coffee, soft drinks, alcohol and chocolate atleast 4 hours before bedtime. 

Avoid Eating too Late 

We’ve all been there. You’ve eaten a large meal before bed and you’re tossing and turning unable to fall asleep. This is because your body is tasked with digesting and metabolizing all of the food you just ate! It may be an unintentional one off or you could be regularly eating too late. Try to eat a balanced dinner at a reasonable time and avoid late night snacking. 

Create A Relaxing Bedroom

Try to always make your bed each morning as it's always nice to jump into a made bed every night. Everyone has their own opinion on what personally relaxes them. For me a bedroom free from clutter, the soothing amber light from my Himalayan Salt Lamp and using essential oils like lavender, chamomile or cedarwood help to create a calm ambience which signals rest.

Avoid Devices Before Bed 

We all know how easy it is to lose track of time once you start ‘scrolling’ on your phone / tablet. Personally,  I’ve lost hours after checking my phone before bed and the result is a late night as my brain continues to tick well past my bedtime. Not only does the blue light from phones and screens confuse our brains and mess up our clock rhythm it also decreases our REM sleep which can leave us feeling groggy the next day.

Invest In A Sleep Mask 

For those of us who work night shifts or just need it DARK to fall and stay asleep,  invest in a nice, soft eye mask. Eye masks will block out any light from your eyes allowing your brain to start producing melatonin. Wheatbags Love eye masks are handmade in Australia and have extra padding inside to block out even more light so you can get a great night (or days) sleep.
