How to improve your sleep

Destress tips Leave a comment  

Struggling to fall asleep?

Try these simple ways to reduce stress and relax before you go to bed

  • Turn off the TV – especially in the evening. You’ll find that you can sleep better at night. Read a book instead.
  • Dim the lights – when your eyes are exposed to lights your pineal gland (a tiny endocrine organ in your brain) will not secrete the melatonin you need for a good night’s sleep.
  • Listen to relaxing music.
  • Take a hot bath with Epsom salts before bed.
  • Use essential oils, like lavender.
  • Ask someone to give you a foot massage. A foot massage is a great way to calm down that excessive nervous energy in your head.
  • Make a list of all the things you are grateful for every night.
  • Drink Chamomile tea early in the early evening or try one of Better4life’s relaxation herbal teas (contact info@better4life.co.za)
  • Don’t eat a large meal late at night.
