Tips for Getting a Better Night’s Sleep

We’ve all been there, you’re tossing and turning and have counted 100’s of sheep, yet you still can’t sleep. A whopping 16 Million of us are currently suffering from Sleeplessness in the UK alone.

Sleep is super important, without it, it can lead to you feeling like a bit of a grumpy guts and not working at your A game. We want to help put an end to that, so we’ve pulled together our top tips for getting a better night’s sleep.

Stick to a Routine

Most of us need between 6 and 9 hours of sleep every night. Work backwards from when you need to wake up and set yourself a regular bedtime schedule. Stick to this schedule, even if you’re feeling you need to ‘catch up’ on sleep, sometimes doing this can disrupt you more!

Take the Time to Wind Down

Everyone has their individual ways of helping them to wind down, for us there’s nothing better than swapping the screens for a good book or taking 15 minutes out to meditate.

If you’re new to mediating, there are some great apps out there to guide you through the process. We’re really loving Headspace or Calm. They offer short guided meditations that include breathing exercises which can help you to relax.

Get Active

Exercising on a regular basis can help you forget about your stresses from the day. The exercise doesn’t have to be strenuous, moderate exercise such as swimming or walking do the job perfectly.

Top tip - make sure you don’t exercise too close to bedtime as it may have the counter effect and keep you awake.

Cut Down on Caffeine

We’re all guilty of fuelling ourselves on English Breakfast, however swapping your cuppa for a herbal tea such as our Superblends ‘Sleep’ or ‘Calm’ can help you to chill out before bedtime.

Treat Yourself

We should all pamper ourselves every once in a while and what better way to do so than with a bath?

Did you know Camomile tea bags can be added to your bath to promote relaxation and help you to get a better night’s sleep?
