A perfect night’s sleep is one of life’s pleasures, but it’s something that can elude all of us from time to time. We’ve put together these tips to help you have a truly restful, and natural, slumber:


Winding down before bed-time is important in relaxing the mind and body in preparation for a good night’s sleep. Everyone winds down in their own way, but often hot baths can help, as can reading a few pages in bed to divert your mind from the day’s events, or listening to calming music. Whatever works for you, clearing your mind and feeling your muscles relax one by one as you rest in bed with the lights out can often help to ready your body for sleep.


Some aromas are known for their soporific properties: a few drops of lavender or chamomile essential oil into your bath before bed or onto your pillow can help you drift off to sleep.

Warm drinks:

Some people find that a mug of warm cocoa (made weak so as to lower the sugar content) or decaffeinated herbal tea before bed can help them sleep.

Things to avoid:

While a nip of whisky before bed does wonders for some, too much alcohol is dehydrating and results in a restless sleep pattern. And of course any drinks containing caffeine (coffee, tea, soft drinks, etc.) should be avoided for a couple of hours before going to bed. Exercising helps regulate sleep patterns in the long-term, however exercising just before bed is a bad idea as your body will still be producing adrenaline.

Your environment:

Ensure your bedroom is conducive to relaxing: keep your bedroom clear of clutter and ban the television. Create an environment made purely for rest and relaxation. Low lighting, warmth and comfort are key.

The perfect bed, mattress and pillows:

None of these tips will be of much use if you have an uncomfortable place to sleep. The right bed frame or base, mattress, pillows and even bedlinen are not only essential for a good night’s sleep, but they can be vital for a healthy body. A bed that gives poor support in any area of your body will not only disrupt your sleep pattern, but it could also be harmful to your joints and muscles in the long-term.
