Top tips for a good night’s sleep

When you have a stressful life event it is perfectly normal to sleep poorly for a few nights. However, problems arise when this short term insomnia turns into long term (chronic) insomnia. This is when you may need to seek help.

  • Limit your use of computers, tablets and phones before going to bed, and do not have the devices next to your bed in the night.
  • Try to limit the amount of time you spend in bed not sleeping – instead try to leave the bed when you are awake in the night.
  • Try to get up at the same time every morning, and go to bed at the same time every night.
  • Increase the amount of exercise you do during the daytime.
  • Don’t drink alcohol to help you get to sleep, as it disrupts your sleep later in the night.
  • Limit your intake of caffeine – the stimulant can stay in your system for up to 8 hours.
