Lisa Artis discusses sleep: the importance of it, the differences in individuals when it comes to the ability to have a good, restful sleep, as well as busting myths around caffeine!
Key points from this podcast:
- Make the time for a wind down routine, even if it is just for 30 mins before bed. Use this time wisely to do something that is relaxing for you
- Write down any worries or thoughts before bed time, this helps to clear the mind before sleep
- Aim for a cool, quite, uncluttered, dark bedroom space with a good quality bed
