5 Ways To Improve Your Sleep

14th September 2017

Here are five easy steps to take -

1) - Turn Off The HeatingSleeping Woman

When we sleep, our body temperature should reach its lowest of the day. If your room is too hot, you'll wake up.

2) - Block Out The Light

If street lights show through your window, it increases stress hormones. Blackout blinds or curtains can help hugely!

3) - Put Your Phone Away

The blue light from mobile phones reduces the hormone that sends us to sleep (melatonin). Set a rule of switching off your phone, tablet and TV 30 mins before bed.

4) - Stay Hydrated

Water is needed for the recovery process, usage of energy when we sleep and regulation of body temperature. If you're dehydrated, recovery will be slower or sleep will be disrupted or poor quality.

5) - De-stress

We all get stressed, and that's something we can't always avoid. Try noting down anything that's on your mind or stressing you out and put the book to one side and leave it downstairs. This is basic, but it can work.

At LSFPT these points are covered more in our weekly in club workshops.

We believe it's important to always help to develop our team's knowledge base.
