Better Sleep


For improved wellbeing.


You might improve your sleep if you adopt 'sleep hygiene'. Sleep hygiene implies that there are a number of measures to take to achieve a well deserved rest!




First some things to avoid:

  • Drinking caffeine loaded drinks such as tea and coffee, fizzy drinks or alcohol too close to bedtime.

  • Watching television just before going to bed.

  • Eating or drinking too near to bedtime.

  • Going to bed before you are sleepy.

  • Working on your laptop/phone or iPad in bed.


Some things to try:

  • Exercise regularly, preferably in the morning or early afternoon.

  • Keep a regular bedtime and waking routine, even at the weekend.

  • Create a relaxing bedtime by going for a short walk, a soak in Epsom Salts in your bath. Listen to soothing music and massage your legs or feet before bed.

  • Make use of deep breathing exercises.

  • Make sure your bed is comfortable, that the room is slightly cooler than the rest of the house. Ensure that your nightwear is not tight or constricting and use a blackout blind to cut out the light.

  • Wear bed socks if your feet are cold.
