You know the daily episode where you wake up so exhausted and tired then you promise yourself that the next night will be different and you’ll go to bed super early this time! But next minute midnight rolls around and you’re mindlessly scrolling or binge watching a tv show. We know it all too well! But here are our top 5 tips & tricks to implement into your night time routine. These 5 simple tips have made a huge difference for us and now we’re falling asleep faster and our quality of sleep has improved so much!!!
1. Set Up A Relaxing Environment
Creating a relaxing calm environment is key to helping unwind after a busy day. Setting up a diffuser with some essential oils is so soothing! Our personal favourite is Lavender.
2. No Blue Light
Blue light signals to your brain to wake up and it’s not time for bed. Whereas when it’s dark our brain produces more melatonin, the hormone that makes us sleepy. Your phone is definitely one of the main culprits that can keep you up all night, most phones have a “night mode” that you can set to automatically turn on once night-time hits. This basically turns off the blue light and switches it to a warmer tone. This will then stop the blue light keeping you alert and awake. Also try turning the brightness on your phone right down, which will also reduce the strain on your eyes. This tip is a GAME CHANGER!
