Better Sleep Better You

Here’s our top tips to help get your bedtime routine back on track.

Sunshine

Daylight exposure plays a huge role in your body’s production of melatonin – a hormone that helps you get those Zzzz’s. So, make sure you get outside while the sun is still about.

White Noise

Silence isn’t always golden. White noise may help you drift into a light sleep quicker. Here’s one to try tonight.

Ditch your phone

Putting your phone away before bed can make it easier to fall asleep. Electronic devices emit blue light that can suppress melatonin production – key for controlling sleep. Set yourself a cut off time and do a non-electronic activity before bed, like reading a book.

Exercise

Whether it’s a short walk or a gruelling step challenge, undertaking some form of daily exercise can do wonders for your sleep! Not only does it make you more tired, it can also reduce stress – a common cause of sleep problems.

Caffeine

Having caffeine even 6 hours before bed can disrupt sleep. Stick to having your favourite caffeinated drink in the mornings. You could even try switching your PM drinks to a non-caffeinated alternative like hot lemon – or give decaf a go.
