Stick to a routine
Heading to bed at the same time each night and waking at the same time each morning can actually help train the body to fall asleep, and stay asleep, more successfully. You’ll soon get to know the amount of sleep that is right for you.
Indulge yourself and wind down
Regular relaxation can make falling and staying asleep easier. We LOVE yoga but something as simple as a delicately scented bath is worth a try.
Avoid caffeine after lunchtime
There are quite a number of reasons both medical and habitual for this to happen. I would recommend talking to your GP to explore this further. However, in simple terms, what you consume must come out so large volumes of fluid consumed throughout the evening, in particular, alcohol and caffeine, can all cause you to urinate more often. It can take 3-7 hours to break down half of a single dose of caffeine. Try to reduce caffeine by having just one cup of coffee in the morning and make friends with herbal teas. Chamomile tea is known for its relaxing qualities, while Green tea contains Theanine which can produce a calming effect on the brain and help to relieve an overactive mind.
Get your heart pumping
Not only does an active lifestyle offer numerous health benefits. But it also means you get a good night’s sleep. Morning or afternoon is best – sometimes exercising in the evening can keep you awake.
