Sleep School





IF YOU'RE SO BUSY AND FIND IT HARD TO GET TO BED BEFORE 11
~ you're in the same boat as me and need some serious restorative zzz's!

Here are the top sleep experts' tips for getting some 'quality' sleep, 
{hopefully 'quantity' factor won't be too far behind}:

1. Snack yourself to sleep: Eating a small carbohydrate snack with a bit of protein a couple of hours before bed gets the brain to produce the calming neurotransmitter serotonin.

2. Keep all electronic devicesincluding digital alarm clocks, smart phones, and computers—away from your bed. Even the tiniest bit of light can disrupt melatonin levels, making it hard to fall asleep.

3. Ditch the heated blanket {and turn down the heating}: Keeping your bedroom cooler actually helps you fall into a deeper and more restful sleep.




4. Stay hydrated. Being even mildly dehydrated cuts your mental and physical energy dramatically. Sleep experts recommend drinking plenty throughout the day, and downing a full glass of water in the first few minutes of waking up

5. Resist the urge to hit the snooze buttonyou're just putting off the inevitable —
and head to the shower. 




6. Cut off caffeine . Now here is a tough one - avoid caffeine and chocolate eight hours before bed.
