How To Get Your Sleep Back On Track After Christmas
We have all been there, that 2am struggle to sleep because you have work, college or the school run to get up for.
Late nights and later mornings have been great, but it’s now time to get back into our routines and our bodies just don’t want to let go of they are used to.
Some useful tips to try and ease you back into a better night’s sleep
- Go to bed and get up at exactly the same time everyday so your body gets into a healthy rhythm again.
- Get some natural daylight as soon as possible. Yes the mornings are still dark but try and get some natural sunlight as soon as possible. Natural light is powerful for our bodies. Get outside in the morning or spend time at your window. Make your bedroom as bright as you possibly can.
- Make your body tired by doing moderate exercise, as little as 30 minutes each day can help.
- Try to avoid the snooze struggle. Hitting that snooze is such a temptation for us but the reality is our deepest sleep occurs when we hit snooze and our bodies are shocked awake which does not set us up properly for the day. Try to wake and get up at the time you need to, open your curtains and let your body know it’s time to start the day.

What we sleep on and in is of course very important and can affect the quality of your sleep.
Being comfortable and waking up not just restful, but dry and warm is the key indicators of a quality night’s sleep. Sleeping in 100% cotton or linen bedding will help you to regulate body temperature better than man-made fibre produced bedding.
