Sleep Easy With These 10 Tips

01/ Stay Cool 

Keeping your bedroom at 15-20°C is the ideal range for facilitating your body’s natural drop in temperature before you nod off. Products such as Dyson’s Cool Tower or an ordinary fan will help keep you from sweating it out. £349.99, Available Dynson.com

02/ Routine

Setting your alarm for the same time every morning is a must. Sticking to a regular schedule makes it easier to wake up in the morning and most importantly, fall asleep at the end of the day. Whoops new 4.0 band has silent alarm technology which slowly wakes you up with a haptic alarm that gently vibrates to wake you at the optimal time based on your sleep needs and cycles. £25.00 Per Month, Available Whoop.com

03/ Up and Lift

Researchers found that 7am is the best time for resistance training if you want a good night’s rest. So get out of there and get a sweaty gym session in to get your bloody pumping. Can’t be bothered with the gym? You can easily create your own home workout space with Eleiko’s Hex Dumbbell Set & Battling Ropes, which will provide a great combination for circuit based training and giving you that quick 20 minute fix each day. From £78.00, Available Eleiko.com

04/ Stretch It Out

Alternatively, another way to start the day in a slightly slowly fashion is with yoga. Its focus on breathing and movement will release tension that can cause insomnia. Yogi Bare have the ultimate mats for those home yoga sessions with their Ultra Grip technology you’ll never again loose your footing in downward dog. £74.95, Available Yogi-bare.co.uk

05/ Mind Gains  

Some of the world leading minds in business and wellness start each day with meditation. Just 5 minutes a day will lift the levels of melatonin in your brain to facilitate sound sleep later. We suggest a great little read each morning with Ryan Holiday and his book The Daily Stoic. Its 366 Meditations on wisdom, perseverance, and the art of living is a daily devotional book of stoic philosophy from some of the greatest minds of the ancient times. £7.20, Available Amazon.co.uk

06/ Firmer Is Sometimes Better  

Do yourself a favour, pop to the shops at lunch to buy a harder pillow: use one that’s too soft and you risk straining your neck, which disrupts sleep. We’ve recently tested out Emma’s Premium Microfibre pillow. From now on, with this fluffy Emma Microfibre pillow, you will feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. Depending on your personal preference, you can adjust the number of pillow layers easily to your own liking, making it the one and only pillow in the world. £69.40, Available Emma-sleep.co.uk

07/ Natural High 

Even brief immersion in nature can help to induce better sleep. Pull on your trainers and run through the park to increase your odds of good shut-eye. We highly recommend the On Cloud Stratus. The Cloudstratus features two layers of Helion-enriched CloudTec for increased vertical and horizontal cushioning. Connected forefoot Cloud elements are perfectly aligned with the Speedboard, resulting in big energy return, durability and road protection. Not only that, but that look superb. £150.00, Available On-running.com

08/ Decrease Those Portions

When it’s time for dinner, stick to modest portions. Large, late meals disrupt your circadian rhythm.

9/ Smell Your Way To Sleep  

Certain smells actually allow your body and mind to relax, such things as lavender or bergamot are perfect for helping your switch off and your body to relax. ThisWorks Deep Sleep Pillow Spray is the combination of a soothing blend of Lavender, Vetiver and Wild Camomile essential oils that will send you into a restorative sleep.

10/ The Chill Out Mix  

Help your mind relax, plug into some soothing music – roughly 45 minutes before bedtime promotes more restful and deeper sleep. Why not take a listen to these playlists on Spotify – Reading Soundtrack or Downtime. Spotify.com
