Sleep hygiene is very important for our health and well-being. There are many reasons why sleep may be an issue. I have provided you with 10 tips to aid sleep and balance your internal clock.
Tip 1: Make sure your room is comfortable and it’s nice and dark, this may mean putting in some blackout blinds/curtains.
Tip 2: Make sure you look after yourself during stressful times or events, by taking a good vitamin B complex http://bit.ly/20DnYxz
Tip 3: Have a warm bath before bed and put in some Epsom salts
Tip 4: Magnesium is a natural relaxant, it may help you by taking magnesium 1 hour before bed time.
Tip 5: Doing deep breathing exercises before bed using your diaphragm rather than your chest to take deep breaths may be beneficial, most people breathe incorrectly. Do at least 10 to 15 deep breathing before bed or when you have a quiet moment.
Tip 6: Listen to some relaxing music before bed, rain and thunder work well for me.
Tip 7: If you have an active mind, try not to watch television an hour before bed, read a good book or do something relaxing that you think you would enjoy.
Tip 8: If you travel as part of your work, and you suffer from jetlag on your return, taking some melatonin may help you get back into a normal cycle of sleep, you can purchase this in any good health food store.
Tip 9: Adrenals/cortisol can play a major part in disrupted sleep, it may also be worth getting an adrenal stress profile test done, to minimise any issues.
Tip 10: Take out any electronics which you may have switched on in the bedroom this can contributes to oxidative stress increases free radicals in the body and weakens the antioxidant defences
I hope you find these tips helpful
