We all know that sleep is essential, but how many of us sleep enough? We function better after a good night’s sleep. We are more productive, calmer, happier and will even make better health choices after a restful night. Sleep increases resilience too.
For me, there are two main areas to focus on to get a better sleep: preparing the space and preparing ourselves.
Prepare the space
1. Make the bedroom calm and relaxing; a place for sleep
1. Have a routine
One of my clients keeps a sleep diary. Through this she has been able to identify foods that stop her sleeping well and also realised that she has a much better night on the days she exercises. Maybe you could give it a go!
And finally, don’t stress about sleep. However, if you are worried that lack of sleep is affecting your day to day life, have a chat with your GP and see how they can help.
