In the modern world, ‘switching off’ is becoming increasingly difficult so here are FIVE helpful tips for you…
1) SET YOURSELF A CUT-OFF TIME
There has to be a time in the evening when you focus on winding down and relaxing. You have to be able to put a stop to work and even tasks around the home and concentrate on you and your wellbeing.
2) DITCH THE CAFFEINE
In a similar manner to relaxing, it is important to set yourself a cut-off time when it comes to drinking anything containing caffeine. We all know chocolate, alcohol and nicotine can also affect your quality of sleep but something as innocent as a tea or coffee can be equally damaging.
3) AVOID ‘BLUE LIGHT’
Scrolling through Facebook, Instagram and Twitter before bed may seem relaxing but your brain will not be giving you a ‘LIKE’ or ‘RETWEET’. Research shows that ‘blue light’ is artificially emitted from phones, tablets, laptops and many other similar devices. It stimulates the brain into producing a chemical which causes you to become more alert, so it is vital to ‘switch off’ at a reasonable hour.
4) NEVER CLOCK-WATCH
Do not attempt to beat the alarm clock, even if you know you are facing a challenging morning or a testing day. Let your alarm do its job and get the sleep you crucially need. State of mind and approach can be built in a positive manner by ensuring you have enjoyed an ideal night’s sleep.
5) TRY AROMATHERAPY
Aromatherapy has proven a legitimate method when it comes to getting the rest and relaxation you require to develop a frame of mind and thought pattern you desire.
