HOW TO UP YOUR STAY-ASLEEP TIME
Green-walking is the new sleepwalking. Studies have shown that compared with walking on a city street, taking an afternoon walk of just 17 minutes in a green environment can promote an increase in sleep of up to three hours! (‘Green’ can mean a park, a forest, or the bush.) The theory is that walking in a green space calms our body, and the decline in body temperature that occurs after afternoon exercise acts as a signal to induce sleep at night.
It can take a little while to establish a better sleep pattern but if you try these steps and good quality sleep still evades you, then consider that your inability to sleep well is actually a symptom – rather than a health condition. Please talk to your medical practitioner about your problem. They can advise you on the best forms of vitamins, minerals and herbs to take. They can also instruct you on how best to take these sleep aids to maximise their effectiveness.
