Sleep Tips #1
==========
Last week sleep was a topic some asked for help with.
So each day this week I’ll give 4 tips – hopefully 1 of 20 might help 🙂
 
1. Cooler over Warmer Room
– Reaching the time of year where the heating goes on, however for sleep purposes you might find a cooler bedroom helps. Too hot, and you’ll get restless, too cold and your bodies nervous system will queue up the muscles to shiver, not allowing them to relax.
 
Take the thermostat down in the bedroom,
cooler than your living room,
and let your body adjust.
 
2. Blackout blind
– A commonly used one, but really works, especially if your room is road or moon facing! It really will make a difference. Your room should be as dark as possible
 
3. Airplane Mode!
– Do you use your phone as an alarm, or keep it by your bedside? Do you leave it on silent of do not disturb?! NO! Put it on airplane mode. There are PLENTY of studies showing that phones omit electromagnetic signals at the best of times, which repeatedly, aren’t great for our health, but when it is within reach of our head,
and our brain is trying to switch off, it’s a HUGE “No, No!”
Yes, you might get to sleep,
but studies have shown reduced ‘deeper sleep’ patterns and more headaches in those keeping it on.
Seriously, this alone if you leave your phone on will bring you the biggest change in health and sleep all week!
 
4. What do you do?!
– Keep a piece of paper and pen near you from 1000pm til bedtime. Write down, as you go, everything you do, and approx how long for.
Watched Apprentice 9pm – 10pm
Surfed Facebook 10pm – 10:30pm
Put the washing on 10:30-10:35
Talked with partner 10:35 – 10:36 😉
End of the week have a look at just how much time you waste or procrastinate with in an evening.
It’s amazing how many people I talk with directly who say “I know I procrastinate and drift in an evening” – it’s one of the easiest ways to investigate and reclaim time!
 
Nothing changes unless you try 🙂
