Prepare your bedroom beforehand … make sure it’s not too warm/cold and once you’ve finished the routine pop straight into bed with your devices turned off 🛏🚫📱 … top tip if you think you still may struggle play some background relaxation music 🎶… but make sure it’s timed to switch off after 20 – 30 mins. Enjoy your first video and here is some food for thought 💁♀️
Don’t let tossing and turning rob you of the shut-eye you need.
You know a good night’s sleep is the key to a happy and well-rested tomorrow. And getting enough shut-eye can help you drive more safely, maintain a healthy weight, and even lower your risk for heart disease and diabetes. But if you’re stuck in a cycle of tossing and turning and then start stressing about the fact that you’re tossing and turning—it’s all too easy to feel frustrated. Not so fast: These tips can greatly help with your current sleep situation
🛏Set a Routine. If you get up early one morning and then sleep in the next, it can be hard to fall into a rhythm. For those doing shift work, an erratic schedule may be part of the job. But if that doesn’t apply to you, going to bed and waking up at roughly the same times every day can help you fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly.
🛏Schedule Your Caffeine. Coffee (or tea or an energy drink) can keep you awake long after the last sip by boosting your adrenaline production and blocking sleep-inducing chemicals in the brain. It takes about six hours for just half of the
caffeine you drink to be processed, so keep that in mind when timing your last cup.
🛏Power Down. The bright light during the daytime is a big part of what sets our circadian rhythm to keep us awake when the sun’s up (and asleep during the night). But the blue lights in many electronic screens like computers, tablets, and cell phones are so bright that they can interrupt your sleep—especially if you use them too close to bedtime.
🛏Write Out Your Worries. Often, tossing and turning can be the result of not being able to lay the anxieties of the day to rest. Get them off your mind by putting them down on paper. Make a list of things that you know you need to deal with tomorrow so that you can forget them tonight.
🛏Practice Relaxation. A simple progressive relaxation technique can do wonders when it comes to beckoning Mr. Sandman. I have put together a short series of videos for you to try just before you go to bed.
🛏Can’t Sleep? Get Up. If you’re still sleepless after 15 to 20 minutes, hit the reset button. Get out of bed and go to another room. Try reading, making yourself a cup of herbal tea, or just sitting and relaxing (but resist the urge to check your e-mail or watch TV).(Source .. The National Sleep Foundation)
