How can I naturally sleep better?

Well-being

Finding yourself wide awake hours after you planned to be asleep? There are a number of ways to naturally help yourself to get a better night's sleep.
Firstly, ensuring that you have the right mattress for you can help to have a big impact on your sleep, or indeed how quickly you can drift into the land of nod. Find yourself a mattress that supports your back whilst offering you the comfort you need to settle down with ease. Ensure that you pair this with the right bedding, including lighter duvets in summer to reduce overheating. If your home is warm throughout the night in winter, you may not need a winter duvet, as you will find yourself unable to cool down.
You may find that you cannot fall to sleep easily due to your lifestyle. Unfortunately, this is where you may need to listen a little closer to the advice of healthcare professionals. Ensuring that you are healthy physically will help you to get a better night's sleep. Having a healthy diet, cutting down on alcohol and stopping smoking are all ways to help improve your sleep. A good amount of exercise each day will also help to encourage deep sleep, we aren't saying you need to train for a marathon, light exercise will be enough.
Reducing your screen time coming up to your bedtime will also help to improve how quickly you fall asleep. The blue light of your screen keeps your brain active, meaning that even after you switch your devices off, your brain is awake and working in overdrive, meaning you can't fall straight to sleep. Give reading or a crossword puzzle a go so as to avoid screens.
