Fight the fatigue with these dreamy tips
With continuous poor sleep putting us at greater risk of heart disease, stroke and mental health issues, hitting that shut-eye sweet-spot is paramount. The occasional bad night’s kip is inevitable, but simple actions throughout the day could be crucial to combating the groggy aftermath, and making sure that your overall sleep cycle is not impacted.
TRY… thwarting any morning anxieties with a hefty dose of positive thinking. You are resilient, and you can get through the day – worrying about your sleep will only deplete your already limited energy reserves, and put unnecessary pressure on that night’s sleep. Upon arrival in the office, prioritise any logical and analytical tasks for the morning, when your brain is at its peak. Save any creative tasks for after lunch, as depleted afternoon energy levels will mean less focus and rational thinking. Eschew the 3pm espresso in favour of matcha tea – you’ll experience a boost in brain function, without the jitters, and a disturbed sleep that often comes with too much coffee consumption. Then you’re definitely on for that dreamy doze.
