Are you part of the 3am club, the ever-increasing population that struggles to get a ‘good night’s sleep’? No doubt you’ve done this and tried that - we feel you! A lack of sleep can have a knock-on effect on other areas of your life – work, relationships, diet, motivation … let’s just say it plays an important role on your physical and mental wellbeing.
If you or someone you know struggles to get to sleep, this week we are sharing our best tips for improving your sleep.
Feeling tired? Take a nap
Fighting tiredness can be disruptive for you and for those around you. Don’t rely on caffeine or energy drinks as a pick-me-up – this may give you a lift in the short term but could affect your sleep patterns in the long term. Give yourself permission to take a 20-30 minute nap. Any longer than that may leave you feeling disorientated and impact on your sleep later on.
A lack of physical exercise can make it difficult to fall asleep – although you may not feel like it right now, regular exercise will make you feel less tired in the long run. Even a single 15-minute walk can give you an energy boost.
To keep your energy levels up during the day, a good way to do this is eat regular means and healthy snacks every 3 to 4 hours, instead of large meals less often. Avoid caffeine, alcohol and large meals close to your bedtime.
Stress uses up a lot of energy – add some relaxing activities into your daily routine like yoga, listening to music, reading a book, spending time with friends or go for a walk.
