Experimenting with Sleep

Our blogger has been exploring the science of sleep. From testing theories to experimenting with new gadgets, she has the answers to all the important questions. How long should you really sleep for? Is a nightcap a good idea? Will hypnosis really help me drift off? Prolonged lack of sleep can lead to lower cognitive function throughout the day, as well as a number of health conditions. Not getting enough sleep makes you more likely to make poor food choices leading to weight gain, diabetes, obesity and heart disease. It’s alarming if you think about it. Take a look at our videos to see if our findings can help you catch some ZZZZs! If you’re still struggling, here are our blogger’s top 3 tips for a stress-free snooze.

1. Your bedroom should be a sanctuary

Keep it cool, clean, dark and smelling fresh. Dust and mites may cause allergies and congest your airways. Aromatherapy products containing lavender will promote sleepiness.

2. Moderate alcohol and caffeine

Neither should be consumed too close to bedtime as they will wreak havoc with your sleep cycles.

3. Relax

Easier said than done, we know. Leave your worries at the door. Write them down, tell them to a friend, do what you need to do to make sure when you get into bed, you’re not thinking about what you have to do the next day!
