As sleep experts we like to ensure that we know all about sleep’s role and function, which is why we read all the latest research. The more we have learnt about sleep the more we have come to realise what a fundamental role it plays in our overall happiness and health. It is not just a means of “recharging batteries”, sleep is much more than that, it is vital to our physical and mental health in a vast range of ways.
That is why it is so important for all of us to sleep well. While for some sleep is not an issue, many of us struggle with getting to sleep and staying asleep. Here are 5 better sleep tips so you can get the sleep you need.
Make your bedroom dark and quiet. With smart phones and televisions increasingly popular items in the bedroom these days, it's important to make sure you turn these off before going to bed. Turn your phone off before you turn the lights off and if you are someone who likes to fall asleep with the TV put it on a timer so it turns itself off.
Eat more protein and whole grains. Both protein and whole grains are great at helping to steady your blood sugar levels over the course of a day. When you eat lean meat, low fat cheese, eggs, or legumes you get an energy boost that keeps you going during the day and will also help you fall asleep at night. Barley and many other whole grains contain magnesium which is vital in helping you go to sleep.
Don’t eat too close to bedtime. Too many people eat heavy food before bed. It is best to only have light snacks in the hours before bed. Avoid any junk foods before bed.
Eat smart before bed. Many foods contain minerals that help you fall asleep. Things like bananas and cereals also boost your vitamin B6. Dairy products such as yoghurt and milk are good too as they contain tryptophan and calcium which both help you sleep
Avoid caffeine and alcohol. While most people avoid coffee at night they still consume products that contain caffeine, such as Coke and even tea. The general rule of thumb is to not have any caffeine four hours before bed. Alcohol is also bad for sleep and you should have your last drink at least an hour before you go to bed.
On the land and waters that we sleep, we walk, and we live, we acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of these lands. We pay respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and recognise their connection to the land.
