Do you struggle to get a good night's sleep? Maybe you feel anxious in your own bed? Perhaps you can't stop all that overthinking?

Maybe you have even learnt to dread your bed time and that ritual of frustration, anxiety, worry and restlessness.

There is no doubt about the importance of sleep - we all know how much harder everything seems to get after a few nights of limited or poor sleep. Not to mention that we need enough rest to cope emotionally and to repair and recharge.

And you could turn to sleeping tablets and use them as a crutch or you could learn how to drift effortlessly and naturally into a wonderful deep sleep every night.

End Insomnia With Healthy Sleep Habits

Getting enough sleep is vital so here are some things you should be doing to encourage good sleep:

(And yes you probably have heard most of these before but are you putting them into place?)

  • Cut down on caffeine and alcohol
  • Turn off the TV and other screens an hour before you go to bed
  • Make sure your bed is comfortable and the room dark and quiet
  • Have a regular wind down routine before bed
  • Only go to bed when you are tired
