4 Ways to Improve Your Sleep

 

Don’t we all love a good night’s sleep? I’d like to speak for you and say a big ‘YES!’ but according to a 2017 Aviva article, 16 million UK adults have sleepless nights. We are not sleeping experts, but we always love researching on how to improve sleeping and here’s what we found:

 

  • Avoid caffeine before bed: Caffeine is a “brain” stimulant, it keeps you alert and attentive - the exact opposite of what we need when it’s time for bed. So, let’s start avoiding that cup of coffee alright? Learn more about caffeine and it's effects on sleep here.

 

  • Take a warm bath: A warm bath helps to wash off the day’s stress and helps improve blood flow (you can read more about on Healthline). Slipping into bed in one of our inara PJ sets is a plus.

 

  • No blue light before bed: Using your phone, iPad or even watching TV right before bed can cause serious sleep problems. A Harvard research explains why you should stay away from these blue light devices at least an hour before bed.

 

  • Exercise regularly: We know regular exercises have so many health benefits in terms of weight and even skincare. But there are direct links to improving insomnia as well mentioned in this sleep foundation article – where regular exercises helped people with insomnia fall asleep faster and even sleep longer.

There are so many ways to improve sleep and you can learn some other tips from this NHS article. Hope you enjoyed reading this and you like the idea of wearing beautiful natural lightweight cotton to sleep – shop inara.
