Self-Help Health Education to Promote Natural Sleep

•    Exercise: gentle exercise can help the body burn up excess energy.

•    Healthy eating: a varied well balanced diet will help ensure the body receives the essential vitamins and minerals it needs to function at its best. Try to avoid excess intake of coffee, tea or alcohol from late afternoon.

•    Daylight: try to arrange some exposure to daylight at least once a day to help your natural body clock maintain its balance. Turn out lights before going

to sleep.


•    Daytime naps: try to avoid having naps during the day since this will affect your evening pattern.

•    Unwind: construct a relaxed pre-bed routine so that you stop all stressful activities an hour and a half before you plan to go to bed. Try some relaxation techniques such as yoga or other forms of meditation.

•    Organising time: can help you take control of your life, set priorities and plan ahead allowing time for relaxation.

•    In bed: don't read or watch television in bed, these are waking activities.

•    Getting up: rise each morning at a regular, convenient hour.
