How to get a good night's sleep
Updated: Sep 10, 2020
Good sleep is incredibly important.
It helps you feel good and makes your body and brain function properly.
Some people have no problem falling asleep. However, many others have severe difficulty falling and staying asleep through the night.
Poor sleep can have negative effects on many parts of your body and brain, including learning, memory, mood, emotions, and various biological functions.
Here are our top sleep tips:
Drink some tea...
... but not Yorkshire Tea! A herbal tea can help relax and sooth your body just in time for sleep. We love fella Harrogate tea company TEA+.
A nightly mug of TEA+ Sleep Vitamin Tea is a soothing bed time blend made up of Passion Flower, Magnesium, Rooibos, Chamomile, Lavender and Vitamin C. Every tea bag contains Magnesium alongside Rooibos, a completely caffeine free and antioxidant rich tea. Magnesium helps to play a role in deep, restorative sleep by maintaining healthy levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter that promotes sleep.
Lower the temperature
Your body temperature changes as you fall asleep. Your body cools down when you lie down and warms up when you get up.
One way to help would be to invest in some new linen bedding. We love this set by Eve. Stonewashed for superior softness and comfort, our pure linen bedding is the most luxurious, durable bed set you’ll find. Made in Europe, it’s available in several colour combinations.
Practice yoga, meditation, and mindfulness
When people are stressed, they tend to have difficulty falling asleep. Yoga, meditation, and mindfulness are tools to calm the mind and relax the body. Moreover, they’ve all been shown to improve sleep.
We love The Acorn Wellness Retreat, nestled in the Nidderdale countryside, close to the breathtaking Brimham Rocks. It is a wellness retreat to inspire, nurture and nourish the mind, body and soul.
