Ever wish you could have a better night’s sleep?
We all know getting enough sleep is crucial to our physical and mental wellbeing. But sometimes, falling asleep or staying asleep can be difficult. Improve your sleep routine with our Top 5 Sleep Tips!
1. It’s all about the timing!
Set your body’s internal clock by going to bed and waking up at the same time every day.
If you’ve had a late night, try a day time nap (rather than sleeping in) to help make up for sleep deficiency without disturbing your natural sleep-wake rhythm.
2. Max up on natural light
To help your body’s melatonin production, get plenty of natural light in the morning, the sooner after you wake up the better.
Have your morning coffee outside, or enjoy breakfast by a sunny window to help you wake up and reset your sleep-wake cycle.
3. Skip the afternoon coffee
Your afternoon coffee may help post-lunch sluggishness – but it could actually be the cause of it.
Caffeine shortens your deep-sleep phases resulting in poorer sleep quality and duration.
So try to avoid caffeinated products at least eight hours before bedtime.
4. Keep cool and sleep better
Feeling too warm will disrupt your sleep as your body is trying to reset its core temperature.
Ideal sleeping temperature is 20 degrees or cooler. So open a window, use a fan or air conditioner (if available) and adjust your bedding (see point 5 below) to cool down.
5. Choose your bedding wisely
Avoid synthetic materials like polyester, microfibre and memory foam. Opt instead for all natural materials such as cotton, bamboo, silk, linen and wool.
Out of these bamboo and linen are the most cooling thanks to their superior breathability, moisture wicking, and thermal regulating qualities. Absolutely perfect for hot sleepers or those with sensitive skin!
