5 Tips for a Better Night's Sleep - Don't Change Much

5 Tips for a Better Night’s Sleep

Is a restful night starting to feel like a pipe-dream? Or maybe your constant grumpy demeanour is earning you a less than desirable nickname at work. Either way it’s clearly time for a change, so start following these 5 tips and get snoozing:

 

  • Reduce your caffeine intake. Start by cutting out one of your cups of coffee per day, especially in the evening.

 

  • Don’t go to bed on a full stomach. Finish your snacking 2-3 hours before bed.

 

  • Limit how much you drink before bed. No one wants to be up in the bathroom 4 times a night.

 

  • Invest in a good mattress and pillow. You should be spending 7- 8 hours there a night. That’s 56 hours per week, 224 hours a month, 2912 hours a year – worth investing in.

 

  • Say goodbye to the nightcap. Don’t be fooled by alcohol’s seductive nature. Its effects thwart a good night’s sleep.

Common sense, no matter how much I try all of these just being 64 seems to have it's own challenges sleep wise.

I don’t recommend you go around suggesting to diabetics to go to bed on an empty stomach...you’re putting them at risk for hypoglycemia
