Our top tips for a good nights sleep!

Updated: Dec 6, 2021

During her time here Nicole put together the following top tips for implementing good sleep hygiene:


⏰Try to regularise a time to go to bed and to wake up every day. Consistency is key.


✨Keep your room cool and comfortable, quiet and dark. Remove any bright electronic devices.


🍹Avoid alcohol before bed!


🛏️Bed is only for sleeping and sex!


🤳Limit screen time before bed, for at least an hour. Using a blue light filter will also help a lot!


🧘‍♂️Put your phone out of reach-!


☕Avoid caffeine at least 4hrs before bed. This includes coffee, tea, energy drinks and even chocolate!


✍️Brain Dump- essential for a busy overactive mind. Have a notebook and a pen beside your bed and jot down all your thoughts before you go to sleep.


🏃‍♀️If you’ve been in bed for 20-30mins and still can’t sleep, get up and walk around for a few minutes or do a small activity before getting back in.


Remember that establishing a good sleep pattern will take time, possibly even weeks. Try small habits at a time and maintain your routine as best as you can 😊


We also run an on demand online sleep programme which can be purchased


For more information on this sleep programme and our other online programmes check out our online services section!
