Sleep! We all LOVE it, we all do it, but sometimes we don’t do it all that well! It may take you hours to drop off, you might have trouble staying asleep or it could be that your mind is just that bit too stimulated and won’t switch off.
National Bed Month is founded by The Sleep Council and it aims to remind us all of why a sound sleep is good for our health...
Sleep plays a significant role in healing and repairing your heart and blood vessels. It helps us maintain a healthy weight and a good balance of hormones, as well as controlling sugar levels. In terms of mental health, a great night’s sleep makes the brain work properly. So in it’s in own right, it truly does deserve a whole month dedicated to it.
Our top sleep saviours:
- Putting away all technology so your mind can relax and stimulation of the brain is left to a minimum.
- Getting as much natural daylight as you can. Research found that those who get the most during the day (even through a window) sleep best at night.
- Reduce the intensity of artificial light in your home by using dimmer switches or low wattage bulbs.
- Avoid drinking alcohol or caffeine before bed.
- Applying sleep balm on your pressure points in order to send relaxing signals to the brain and prepare you skin and body for rest.
