For some people falling asleep is as easy as 1, 2, 3 they can be out like a light as soon as their head hits the pillows.

Don’t go to Bed Stressed
Christmas can be the season of stress that’s for sure! But if you are suffering from stress or anxiety it’s little wonder you can’t catch up on your zzz’s. Take some time out before going to bed to do a relaxing activity. Whether it’s having a hot bath, reading a book or losing yourself in meditation there are multitude of relaxation techniques you can employ before you sleep.
Routine breeds good sleep! If you have had kids you will know this already. Try going to sleep at the same time and getting up at the same time every day. Your body will soon begin to understand the system and by the time it strikes ten will start to automatically feel drowsy.
Go Au Natural
Stocking up on caffeine, nicotine and food before bed can disrupt your sleep. not only does caffeine and nicotine keep you up but eating before bed could play havoc on your digestive system in the small hours of morning. For an uninterrupted sleep choose au natural teas before bed and stay away from the midnight feasts.
A bed is more than just a bed! We all need different sleeping conditions to function. Some like it light, whilst others need pitch black silence. Some need a hard mattress whilst others need feather soft conditions. Adapt your sleeping conditions to suit your needs, whether it’s putting up heavy drapes, opening a window or wearing earmuffs.
