    24 June, 2017 • Posted in Advice, Life

    Are you struggling to sleep?

    Keep waking up during the night?

    Always tossing and turning?

    In today’s post I am going to share with you some quick and easy tips on how to have that perfect nights sleep.

    1. Have a hot shower/bath

    The heat from the hot water works wonders for helping you to relax and why not treat yourself to a little pamper such as a face mask, body scrub anything that will help you have that ‘fresh-feeling’ of course with the recent warm weather cold showers would be perfect.

    2. Drink Herbal Tea

    Having a hot drink half an hour to an hour before you sleep can be very soothing and calming, you can have anything to your liking from green tea, chamomile tea, my favourite is apple and cinnamon as long as it does not contain caffeine as this will keep you up all night!

    3. Hot Water Bottle

    As its gets colder during the nights, having a hot water under your sheets makes all the difference, not only will it make you feel warmer but it creates a cosy feeling – helping you to dose off.

    4. Listening to Music

    For me this is a must, I always have to sleep with something calming in the background, it can be sounds of a piano, nature, even yoga music. Spotify has amazing playlists for this – by leaving this on a low volume helps creates a calm atmosphere to help you sleep.

    5. Lighting

    This of course depends on you and what you are comfortable with. Lighting is important when trying to sleep, you can have full darkness, a lamp on, or even a little night light to help create a dim mood. Whatever it may be it needs to suit to you and what makes you feel relaxed.

    That’s my top quick tips! What I love about these, they are inexpensive and most likely you will have these already in your home to try. Hopefully these will help you to easily drift off.

      Ideal tips here, great post. Personally I use all these tips apart from a hot water bottle and I even a tens machine (electronic form of acupuncture) Yet still a good nights sleep to me is around 4 hours! It’s rare I get more than that, on the odd occasion I will get around 6 hours but then seem to suffer during the day with drowsiness or lack of concentration…
