Get More Sleep

What will help you feel more energised each day, improve your mood and even help you lose weight? Sleep! It really is that simple…SLEEP!

The body does most of its background repairs and regeneration each night while you sleep. The brain cleans itself from the inside out, muscles repair and even calcium is added to bones while you slumber. Getting adequate sleep is the best way to help your mind and body function at its best.

We all know that getting to bed earlier is easier said than done but there are lots of other things that can be done to improve the quality of the sleep you get. Some simple strategies you can implement are switching off all screens an hour or two before you hit the sack (yes, even your phone…), try avoiding food for a couple hours before bedtime too, this can ensure that your digestive system doesn’t keep you awake. Lastly, try to remove any stimulus that might rouse you during your lighter phases of sleep; remove all lights from your bedroom, even a night lights and alarm clocks can wake you from light sleep.
