My 5 best tips for better sleep

When was the last time you had a great night’s sleep and woke up feeling fresh and ready for your day?

Do you love your busy life but sometimes feel you are running ‘on empty’?

Do you feel tired in the mornings, sluggish after lunch, or fall asleep in front of the TV in the evening?

Do you turn to caffeine, carbs and sugar cravings for quick bursts of energy?

I know this isn’t rocket science, but good sleep makes all the difference.

Here are my five best tips for better sleep.

1. Get to sleep before midnight

If you need to be awake by 7 or 7.30am, then you really need to get to bed before midnight. Seven or seven and a half hours sleep works for most people. If you rely on an alarm, it’s probably because you are trying to wake up during deep sleep. Getting a little more could help you to wake up naturally.

2. Have a regular bedtime

If your sleep patterns are all over the place, your body clock gets out of sync very quickly. Find a bedtime that you can work with and stick to it (at least on school nights).

3. Have a shower before bed

Going to bed feeling clean and warm is a good feeling. We are exposed to many types of dirt and pollution at work, on transport, in the street, and in our homes. Washing it all away leaves us refreshed and ready for bed.

I like to use lavender body wash for my night-time shower and a relaxing body cream afterwards.  Oils such as lavender, ylang ylang and patchouli don’t just  smell lovely, they actually helps us wind down and prepare for sleep.

4. Have a sleep routine

TV and other gadgets in the bedroom emit too much blue light so our body still thinks it’s daytime. Try to replace them with more relaxing habits. Bedtime reading by candlelight or a dim bedside light helps us get ready for sleep.

A cup of herbal or decaf tea is the perfect way to unwind. A herbal supplement or homeopathic remedy can settle our nervous system and promote deeper sleep.

Keeping a quiet and dark bedroom that is slightly cool is a great way to help ensure a better night’s sleep. If you find that you wake up too early, try wearing a sleep mask.

5. Have a course of homeopathy

You know that decent sleep makes a huge difference to how you feel.  Maybe you’re wondering how homeopathy can help.

If you haven’t had a course of homeopathy before, perhaps the best way I can describe it is that it’s similar to having personal training.

If you want to get fit you have lots of options open to you. You can go it alone, go to group classes or hire a trainer. We can all do a lot on our own, or in a group with other people, but if we really want to make a difference quickly you hire a trainer.

A personal course of treatment can help you understand the causes of your sleep problems, be accountable for your sleep habits, and ultimately get your sleep patterns back to normal.
