Sleeping & calming aids
Around 30% of adults regularly suffer from poor sleep, either with trouble getting to sleep or disturbed sleep. There are many causes, including stress, dietary causes and overuse of devices. And while the short term effects or poor sleep - such as grumpiness or trouble concentrating - are unpleasant, poor sleep is connected to many more serious health conditions, including:
- Heart disease
Sleep plays a very important role in maintaining overall health. That is why you should do what you can to get a good night’s sleep.
Tips to get a Good Night’s Sleep
If you have trouble sleeping, you may want to change your nightly routine. This can help you maintain a healthier sleeping pattern. Try and get around the same amount of sleep each night. While you may enjoy a weekend lie in, this can increase the jet-lag type symptoms associated with poor sleep during the week. This means you should try and go to sleep and wake up at roughly the same time every day.
Spend time outside during the day. Being more active while out in the sun will help your body recognise the day/night cycle more easily. Don’t use your devices in the bedroom. The blue light emitted by many phones and tablets can disrupt sleep. You should not use devices for 1 - 2 hours before sleep. Avoid caffeine late at night. This may give you a short-term energy boost, but it can lead to longer term sleep deprivation.
If these tips don’t help and you are still suffering from poor sleep, then there are many remedies that can help. At Rightdose, we have herbal and conventional sleep aids available. These can help you enjoy an undisturbed night’s sleep, with all the health benefits that brings.
