Could you do with a better nights sleep?

Do you need to sleep better?

If you are often tired, irritable and not giving your best during the day, you may need more (or better quality sleep).

Here are some ways to do that:

•Regularly practise a relaxation exercise in the evening can help you wind down and prepare for sleep

•Try not to read, eat, work or watch TV in bed. Your bedroom must be a place associated with going to sleep.

•If you can’t get to sleep after about 15 minutes, get out of bed and do something not too stimulating (e.g. watch TV or read a book) in another room. Once you feel sleepy again, go back to bed.

•Repeat the process if you still can’t get to sleep.

•Keep to a routine at night as much as possible, so your body recognises it as a signal to wind down, ready to sleep.

•Don’t have a heavy meal just before bed, as your body will be working hard to digest it.

•Avoid coffee and cigarettes after 6pm. If you do have coffee or cigarettes at night, don’t have them too close to bed time
