Here, we thought we would provide you with some essential tips on how to get to sleep at night by removing all distractions and feeling relaxed.
Stop checking your phone.
Now this sounds simple enough but we all know how tempting it can be to check your social media feed in bed.
Constantly updating your notifications means that your mind will be constantly racing and find it hard to relax. There have been multiple studies about reducing the blue light intake at night. This is because viewing blue light (such as your phone or laptop) can trick your brain into believing that it is daytime.
Naturally this wreaks havoc with your body clock and can ruin your sleep.
Make sure you exercise during the day.
Nowadays we all too often go straight to bed after sitting behind a desk all day. This can really hinder a good night’s sleep.
As humans we are supposed to be active. Sleep is a means to rest both mentally and physically. By failing to exert energy throughout the day will confuse the body, as the need to rest will not be sufficient. You may fall asleep eventually but the quality of sleep will not be as good as if you had undertaken some exercise during the day.
If you have not exercised in a while, start light and work your way up.
Don’t consume caffeine in the afternoon
Of course caffeine has many benefits, but it should only be consumed in the morning!
As your nervous system receives stimulation from caffeine, it prevents it from relaxing at night. The slowing down of your nervous system is integral to you being able to fall asleep. As your mind and body slow down, drifting off to the land of nod.
Studies have shown that, to maximise the quantity and quality of your sleep, caffeine should not be consumed at least 6 hours before trying to go to sleep.
