8 steps to a better night’s sleep


In the hustle and bustle of daily life, a good night's sleep can sometimes feel like an elusive luxury. However, prioritising your sleep is essential for your overall well-being. Ensuring you get plenty of zzz’s is an integral part of a happy, healthy life. Join us as we explore eight steps to achieving a better night's sleep and plenty of sweet dreams…

Reduce your screen time

The bright glow of screens, whether from smartphones, tablets, or computers, can interfere with the body's natural sleep-wake cycle. To promote a restful night, try reducing screen time at least an hour before bedtime. Instead, unwind with a good book, soothing music or a relaxing bath.

Eat Well for a better night’s sleep

What you eat can significantly impact your sleep quality. Avoid heavy meals close to bedtime, as they can cause discomfort and indigestion. Throughout the day, try to incorporate foods into your diet that are known to improve the quality of your sleep, such as nuts, seeds, fish and rice. After a certain hour, steer clear of sugar and caffeine, instead opting for herbal teas known for their calming properties.

Regular exercise

Regular physical activity is not only beneficial for your overall health but can also improve sleep quality. Engaging in moderate exercise, such as walking or yoga, can help regulate your sleep patterns. Aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week, but try to complete your workout a few hours before bedtime to allow your body to wind down.


Surround yourself with nature

Spending time outdoors and breathing in fresh air can have a positive impact on your sleep. Take a stroll in the countryside, open your windows for some fresh air, or indulge in a moment of relaxation in your garden. The connection with nature can help calm the mind and prepare your body for a restful night.


Relaxing herbal teas

Incorporate the soothing benefits of herbal teas into your bedtime routine. Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, herbal teas can aid relaxation and promote sleep. Consider flavours like camomile, lavender, or peppermint for a calming pre-sleep ritual.

Establish a sleep routine

Creating a consistent bedtime routine signals to your body that it's time to wind down. Whether it's taking a warm bath, practicing mindfulness meditation, or writing in a well-being journal, establishing a calming routine before bed can cue your body to prepare for sleep.


Maintain your body clock

Consistency is key when it comes to regulating your body's internal clock. Aim to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. This helps regulate your body's circadian rhythm, making it easier to fall asleep and wake up naturally.
