Keep technology out of the bedroom
• The blue component of light suppresses melatonin, which is the hormone needed to regulate and instigate sleep.
• Avoid too much stimulation from about 8pm onwards, when the melatonin is meant to be naturally rising.
• Turn devices off so your brain can think about
sleeping at this time.
• Relax for at least an hour before going to bed • Reading, talking with your partner, listening to quiet music, doing yoga, meditation and stretching are all good ways to relax. • Watching TV across the room is better than a TV that is right up in front of your eyes. And try to avoid stimulating viewing.
