Sleep well....


An occasional night without sleep makes you feel tired and irritable the next day, but it won’t harm your health.

After several sleepless nights, the mental effects become more serious. Your brain will fog, making it difficult to concentrate and make decisions. You’ll start to feel down, and may drop off during the day.

How often do we ask ourselves

"Am I tired? Should I have an early night?”

Did you know that we spend (or should do anyway) approximately a third of our lives asleep? Sleeping is one of the pillars for maintaining good physical and mental health.

There are many things you can try to help yourself sleep well.

  • Exercise regularly, but at least three hours before bedtime.
  • Avoid tea and coffee and don’t drink a lot of alcohol before bed.
  • Avoid bright screens (from phones and tablets) as these can overstimulate the mind meaning that you can't switch off.
  • Try to go to sleep and wake up at the same time each day.
  • Only use your bed for sleep, your bed should be associated with sleep.
  • Establish a regular, relaxing bedtime routine that lets you unwind and sends a signal to your brain that it’s time to sleep.
  • If you can’t sleep, don’t worry about it. Get up and do something relaxing like listening to music or reading until you feel sleepy.
