Our Tips for a Good Night’s Sleep

Here are our tips for a good night of sleep that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated in the morning.

With busy schedules, technology and the daily stressors of modern living, getting enough deep and restorative sleep often eludes us.Good sleep is a necessity, not only for its physical and mental health benefits, but for allowing you to thrive and optimise your day. Here are our tips for a good night of sleep that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated in the morning.

SYNC WITH NATURE

After sunset is the time that nature intended for us to fall asleep. Once it’s dark, try to reduce artificial lighting inside so that you can begin to unwind.

LIMIT TECHNOLOGY

The light from our screens suppresses the hormone melatonin which helps to regulate our sleep cycle. Try a technology-free hour before bed to support the natural production of this hormone.

EARLY DINNER

Eating a few hours before bed gives the digestive system time to process your meal. Falling asleep on a full stomach means your bodily systems may focus on digestion rather than rest and recovery.

MAGNESIUM

Magnesium helps to calm the nervous system and soothe muscle tension. When taken before bed, it can promote relaxation of the mind and body for a deeper sleep.

COOL ROOM

Try to maintain a cooler temperature in your bedroom if possible. Should your core temperature become too warm you may become restless and unable to fall into a restorative state.

MEDITATE

Acknowledging then releasing the day’s thoughts and returning to your breathe, is a powerful way to quieten a racing mind. Try inhaling and exhaling to the count of the four until you feel yourself drift off into sleep.
