10 a minutes better to... night’s sleep
1 Devise a regular
We go to bed early when we’re feeling poorly, but a regular sleep routine is also vital for your health. Tip: Set an alarm to go to bed before 10.30pm.
2 Avoid having too
Drinking just one coffee can knock one hour off your sleep, according to a study. Tip: Have your last caffeine fix at 2pm.
3 Relax in a warm bath
Dim the lights, light a candle and let the warm water calm your senses. Tip: Make your own sleepy bath by mixing 2-4 cups of Epsom salts and 1 cup of baking soda.

Being too hot or too cold can disrupt your sleep. Wear a pair of clean socks when you go to bed. Tip: Keep your bedroom between 60- 67˚F.

from the bedroom
In an ever-increasing tech world, it’s hard to switch off. Tip: Have a digital detox an hour before bed.
