Tips for a Good Night Sleep

Ahhhhh, the amazing feeling of a good night's sleep!

We have all had those nights of tossing and turning and having trouble either getting to sleep or staying asleep.

In the last Yoga and Wellness retreat we covered in the wellness talks "Tips for a Good night sleep" followed by a Yoga Nidra Meditation (Yoga Sleep).   A guided meditation that will allow you to restore not only the body, but also the every busy mind as well.

Here are some highlights for my top tips for getting that perfect night's rest.

Try to avoid screens a few hours before bed-time.

If must use screens, download a blue-light app which dulls the colours of a screen at night.

Eat dinner earlier rather than later, as late evening meals can raise your body temperature making it more difficult to fall asleep and also may cause indigestion.

Dehydration can occur with alcohol, so best to avoid close to bed-time.  Also try to reduce stimulants such as caffeine, chocolate in the evenings.

If you have an oil burner, soothing scents such as chamomile, lavender or jasmine are great ones for relaxation and winding down after a busy day.

If you would like to use Yoga Nidra (Yoga Sleep) to help you fully relax, please see my link to my download (only $10)

You will be guided through this meditation for 30 minutes whenever you need it.  It will allow you to feel complete mental, physical and emotional relaxation to feel absolutely wonderful afterwards.
