Thoughts on how to aid a better night’s sleep:



Our bodies produce melatonin, when we feel safe.

For our bodies to produce melatonin, our bodies and mind need to understand messages, from our body, that tell us that it is comfortable.

Eating a breakfast, shortly after waking up, is a big part of this process.

After waking up from your nights sleep in bed, try eating breakfast, within 30 minutes of waking, to help balance your blood levels.

Doing this also helps to deny our primeval senses, of the worry that there is no food.

Subconsciously, our minds recognise the ‘safety’ that eating the food early, represents.

This in turn helps our bodies to produce the melatonin, which means that we will sleep better, the next time we go to bed.


This is a toughie for many of us!

‘I can’t function, without a cup of tea or coffee first thing in the morning’, is an expression we all will have heard of, many times.

But, the caffeine contained in the drinks, only stimulates us artificially. If you eat breakfast, before your cuppa, it makes a big difference. It will help your body produce melatonin, in the later part of the day, which in turn, helps you to a better nights sleep.

Try to avoid drinks with caffeine in them, after 3pm in the afternoon.


Water, drink plenty!

Our bodies are made up of 70-80% of water, so it is incredibly important to keep these levels up.

2 Litres of water, per day, is our recommended intake. Drink this over the day, in small glasses.

Small amounts are absorbed easily by the body and it is then possible to make sure that you have taken advantage of the water properly and not just have it passing through!

By hydrating properly, it will help aide you, towards an amazing night’s sleep.



Early to bed

An earlier night, into bed, makes for a totally refreshing way for the body to re-charge.

It is known, that 90 minutes of sleep before midnight, is extremely good, for the body and mind.

Make an effort to get into bed, around 10pm.

This will give you the chance to relax and to prepare your body and mind for sleep.


Make your bedroom a sanctuary

Technology is amazing but in your bedroom, ‘phones, TV’s & computers, interrupt our minds in the preparation for sleep.

In a perfect world, leave them all out your bedroom.

Leave the temptation, to look for ‘that’ email, to text friends, or order that piece of clothing, in another room.

And finally…

So, ‘what if?’

I feel that you have nothing to lose by trying these ideas out, in the pursuit of the best nights sleep, that you can have.

I would love you to let me know how you get on!

Selecting your new bed is a considered choice. Beds should suit you, no two spines are the same. Therefore, in order to get the very best out of your nights sleep one of the first decisions to be made is in the firmness of your mattress.

Beds have three stages of support. Gently supportive, medium support and firm. Therefore selecting the right mattress for your bed is begun by finding out which degree of support you require.

When you lay on your bed your body is supported by the mattress. If the support is too firm you will only have restless nights of sleep. A mattress which is too firm will cause tension in your shoulders, hips and knees causing you to toss and turn throughout the night.
