Anyone else cherishing their bed these days?! Turn your evening into a ritual, one that serves you well for a great night sleep...

Healthy sleep is vital for us to function and restore cells to keep us healthy. How we wind down is really important to determine the quality of your sleep...if you’re finding yourself scrolling on screens late at night, why not try these:

Set a bedtime (sounds obvious, but try it!)

Creating a regular, slightly earlier bed time, ensures your body gets used to winding down and almost becomes automated after time, this ensures you also get the optimum amount of sleep you require based on your morning routine and when you need to wake up.

Switch off screens and leave in another room to charge

Turn off your phone 30 minutes - 1 hour before bedtime for better sleep quality. Leave it in another room at night and use a separate alarm clock. The blue light emitted by your phone screen restrains the production of melatonin, the hormone that controls your sleep-wake cycle. This makes it even more difficult to sleep and wake up the next day.

Plan your morning

Get ahead of the next day and plan how you would like your morning to look, including to do's but also including a bit of morning self care.

Stretch your body

Write a journal

Journalling is so important to clear your head at the end of the day. Offloading any worries, what went well, what you'd like improve on tomorrow and of course daily gratitude, all help with calming your mind before bed.

Reading the printed page allows your mind to focus on just one area, it can almost create a meditative state. Reading can also make you quite sleepy once you've managed to wind down!

 

Hopefully those simple tips can help you find a successful bedtime routine, good for your mind, good for your body. Sleep is one of the most important areas of our wellbeing that we need to look after.
