Look (UK) - - HEY BUSY GIRL! -

1 De­vise a reg­u­lar

sleep rou­tine

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

much caf­feine

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

or shower

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.

4 Pop on a pair of socks

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.

5 Ban all elec­tronic gad­gets

from the bed­room

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