If you’re missing out on some good shut-eye it can take a serious toll on your energy levels, productivity, skin, and weight. So, to keep yourself healthy and happy, here are our tips to a good night’s sleep.

Get into a routine

Keep your body in sync by going to sleep and waking up at the same time every day. This process will help to set your body clock and optimise the quality of your sleep. Unfortunately, this does mean you need to skip the weekend lie in until 11am…

Switch off

Avoid bright screens 1 – 2 hours before going to bed. Your phone, television and computer emit a blue light that can be disruptive to your sleep. Instead, put the screen down and give your eyes a break a couple hours before turning in.

Exercise and eat well

Regular exercise, and a healthy diet, improves the symptoms of insomnia and sleep apnoea, plus it will give you more energy throughout the day.

Wind down

Still tossing and turning of a night? Make sure you’re taking the time each evening to wind down from the day. Whether this is a hot bath, a face mask, or meditation – it’s important to clock off for the day and wind down mentally and physically.
