Guide To Sleeping Better

We all know sleep is important. We've all had a poor nights sleep which leads to a pretty miserable next day. Here are some tips to help you get a better nights sleep.

1. No phones or TV in the bedroom. The blue light from screens has been shown to delay the sleep-inducing melatonin.

2. No caffeine within 6 hours of sleep. We want to have the caffeine removed from our body by the time we hit the hay.

3. Avoid using alcohol as a sleep aid. Your body shifts from focusing on sleep and recovery to processing the alcohol which leads to less restful sleep.

4. Exercise! Regular exercise will help you sleep better.

5. Relax before bed. Whatever that is for you, make it part of your routine. Read a book, take a warm bath, some light stretching. Find something that helps you unwind before bed.

6. Dark & Cool. Keeping your bedroom dark and cool has been shown to help you fall asleep faster and stay in a deeper sleep longer. 7. Eat Right. Avoid heavy or greasy meals before bed. Eat right but not too light that you go to bed hungry.

8. Avoid napping during the day or early evening. If you do take a snooze, set an alarm and keep it short (15-20 mins). Too much daytime sleep will affect your ability to sleep later.
