How to improve your sleep routine

How to improve your sleep routine

We’ve all encountered the odd sleepless night… and sometimes they can be undetectable to us if the issue has become part of our natural sleep routine.

The most common sleep issues include getting to sleep and staying asleep, oversleeping and waking up more tired, parasomnias such as nightmares or night terrors, restless leg syndrome and snoring and sleep apnoea.

Our sleep expert, Dr Nerina, adds, “another sleep problem I have identified is what I call ‘who needs sleep?’ disorder”. The University of Oxford describes this as ‘sleep arrogance’, which is when someone constantly tries to keep with the demands of life by working against their body clock.

Dr Nerina also suggests that if you fall into this category of ‘sleep arrogance’ you need to try and relax your attitude towards sleep and relinquish control to enable yourself to fall asleep at a reasonable time to gain more energy for the next the day.

Sleep isn’t the only way we get energy, it can also come from the food we eat, exercising regularly, our relationships and the way we use our mind.

So if your mind is in overdrive during the night and you can’t sleep, here are some things to reassure you:

  • It’s completely normal to wake up in the night.
  • It’s possible to sleep with your eyes open when watching TV or reading a book
  • It’s normal to not sleep well sometimes
