We all know how important it is to get a good night’s sleep, but even if we manage to get to bed at a reasonable time, it can still be hard to guarantee a solid eight hours of shut-eye. Here are some easy tips you can try to improve your sleep health.
Before you start thinking about sleeping pills or other medicinal aids, why don’t you try spritzing a bit of sleep spray onto your pillow? There are a variety of these sprays available, containing natural herbs and scents that help relax you and send you off to sleep.
Another excellent way to ensure a good night’s sleep is to take a bath in Epsom salts before bed. Doctors say that 10 minutes soaking in Epsom salts can actually be the equivalent of a one-hour massage!
These miracle natural salts help relax your muscles, removing tension from your body and preparing you to drift off naturally.
We all know that too much screen time can affect our ability to switch off at the end of the day. Good sleep hygiene means turning off your phone a good hour or so before bedtime—and you can also set your phone to “do not disturb” to ensure nothing wakes you up until the morning.
Another great way to ease you off to sleep is to listen to sleep-aid podcasts. These can be sleep-focused mindfulness practices, relaxing stories, or soothing sound effects such as ocean waves.
