Ways to help your get a Good Night's Sleep

Up to 45% of Australian adults don’t get enough sleep due to a number of lifestyle and environmental factors including stress, increased pressures and work patterns. This is leading to a sharp rise in demand for natural sleep solutions.
With all of these 'sleeping don'ts,' it can be tricky to know where to begin as you move towards a healthier bedtime routine, so we've listed a few things for you to try:
1. Engage in regular exercise - exercise has been linked to helping stabilize your mood and decompressing the mind, resulting in an easier evening wind down. Just be sure to train at least 2-3 hours before bedtime so that your endorphin peak doesn't keep you awake!

2. Hydrate and feel great - As a diuretic, alcohol dehydrates the body causing an increase in the chances of snoring and hoarseness as your throat and nasal passage dry out. Try and maintain a healthy level of hydration during the day for fewer interruptions at night. 8 glasses of water is usually optimal.

3. Keep your room cool - A cool sleeping environment helps regulate your body's internal temperature, encouraging a level, restful sleep.

4. Set regular wake and bedtimes - Start with a simple bedtime routine to help promote your body's natural sleeping pattern and body clock. Over time you should feel your body naturally dozing off around your bedtime and wake around the same time as your regular alarm.
