Did you know today is World Sleep Day (15th March)?
It therefore seemed like the perfect time to talk to the founder of bed linen brand Undercover, Miriam Tyrangiel, who is providing 5 simple tips that could help you to get the good night's sleep you need...
1. No distractions
You need to make sure your bedroom is a calm and serene zone. If you're planning to declutter just one room in your home, it should be the bedroom. A clear space helps you to have a clear mind and before you know it, you'll be enjoying a relaxing night's sleep.
When you're picking your bedding, consider choosing a breathable fabric. Think about this when you look for your pyjamas too.
3. Work it out
If you exercise regularly, it can help to improve the quality of your night's sleep, studies have found. After working out for at least 16 weeks, you can expect to see results - just make sure you avoid doing any for at least three to four hours before you turn in for the night.
4. Wandering mind
Try reading a book for around 10 to 15 minutes in bed before turning your light out. A good tip - opt for something that doesn't link to your day-to-day life. It can be fiction, or alternatively, something dry and technical - whatever you prefer to read.
5. Moderate temperature
As your body heat peaks in the evenings, picking a slightly cooler room can play a part in helping you to doze off more easily. It links back to picking a breathable fabric- you can also find bedding which regulates your temperature - this will be especially helpful in the summer.
