Sleep & Stress
Are you struggling with sleep?
One of our experts is here to help;
Stress is one of the major factors that can affect our ability to switch off and sleep and by not sleeping, everything always seems so much worse the next day.
Our ability to see anything in a positive light disappears, our reasoning, our judgement, our mood and most importantly our health both physical and mental can be affected.
Our family hasn't been immune to losing jobs or being unemployed for months so we know how totally debilitating and soul destroying this can be.
Because sleep is so important, I have put together a few tips to help if you are struggling with getting to sleep or staying asleep so that you can better face the day ahead.
Make sure you are drinking enough water to hydrate your brain and body. Your pee should be clear so if it isn't you know to up your water intake. Filtered is best as it puts less stress on the kidneys.
Limit your caffeine consumption and watch what time you have your last "boost" as caffeine has a half life of approximately 6 hours and blocks certain receptors tricking the body into believing it isn't tired.
Get outside barefoot on the grass or sand or earth; it makes you feel good.
Limit screen time before bed time; the blue light emitted has the same wavelength as daylight so no wonder your body is confused and can't switch off.
My top tip is to clear your sleep space aka bedroom of all electronic devices or have them all on flight mode. This has helped tens of people sleep better during the last few months.
