This week’s top tip: Trouble Getting to Sleep?

Valerian Tea - a natural sleep aid

Valerian Tea – a natural sleep aid

Try to take exercise and drink plenty of water during the day.  Don’t watch TV or use the computer in the hour before bedtime.  Have a warm, milky drink or a warm bath with essential oils like lavender.

Take herbal teas for sleep, for example Valerian or Passiflora half an hour before bed.  This is a nice drink with honey in it and is not addictive.  Have the bedroom a bit cooler than the rest of the house but keep the bed warm, maybe with a hotwater bottle.  If all else fails get help from a GP who may prescribe you with melatonin (www.sleepfoundation.org/article/sleep-topics/melatonin) to regulate your sleep naturally over a few months.

Next week: Beat depression naturally.
