  • Finding it difficult to fall asleep? Waking up early and can't sleep again?

  • well here are my top tips to get a better night's sleep without the use of medication

  • did you hear that Anne, without the use of medication "I did, sounds good"

  • so the majority of causes of insomnia are due to life events rather than physical illness

  • like stress, anxiety, smoking and drinking too much, watching TV and playing on our phones

  • before we go to bed

  • and these are all the kinds of things that can trick our bodies into wanting to stay active

  • rather than going to sleep

  • I see so many patients who have insomnia and most of them want these, sleeping tablets

  • but actually most pharmacists, GPs and nurse practitioners tend not to recommend these & here's why

  • firstly they can be addictive, secondly they don't promote restful sleep

  • and thirdly they're not fixing the root of the problem

  • so here are my top tips let's begin with daytime habits

  • first set a specific time to wake up and go to sleep everyday I wake up at 6 a.m. every day

  • and I mean I don't really like it and I feel tired when I wake up but because of this

  • when it's nighttime I fall asleep almost straight away and it's because your body it loves a cycle

  • exercise in the day so you're tired before you go to bed

  • and I was planning on filming this whilst I was jogging but it's really really rainy outside

  • don't work in your bedroom so keep it just for sleeping and don't take naps throughout the day

  • now let's move on to bedtime habits

  • try not to watch TV or play on your phones whilst in bed or before going to bed

  • because what it does is it reduces the melatonin we produce

  • which is the hormone which makes us feel more sleepy

  • avoid big meals before going to bed

  • avoid alcohol, caffeinated drinks and smoking especially in the evening

  • as these are going to stimulate you so you won't fall asleep

  • it's also worth mentioning that some prescribed medicines can also interfere with your sleep

  • so if these symptoms have suddenly come about and you've been prescribed something new

  • then speak to your pharmacist and they can check this for you

  • and if you have a lot going on in your life which a lot of people do then try these calming techniques which

  • I've left a link in the description below I think they're really useful and it should help you sleep better

  • and lastly let's move on to the bedroom environment which I find is often overlooked

  • have your bedroom at the right temperature

  • and the best temperature has been found to be between 15.5 to 20 degrees

  • use thick curtains to block out any morning sun or any light coming from street lights

  • and this is the bit where I need some curtains to draw but we don't have any here

  • and lastly use the right bedding for the time of the year

  • if you're still having trouble sleeping after using all these tips then have a word with your

  • GP, pharmacist or nurse practitioner
