Tips for a better night’s sleep


We all know what it’s like when we’ve not had enough sleep. The following day isn’t exactly dreamy. A lack of a good night’s sleep can be due to a host of reasons, stress being one culprit. When we experience high levels of stress, our sleep becomes impaired as we start to struggle to fall asleep and stay asleep.

New Zealand wellness brand BraveFace is no stranger to giving Kiwis the tools to manage stress and worry. BraveFace’s range of herbal supplements helps balance our stress response and relaxes you naturally for a good night’s sleep. The result? You feel calmer and sleep better.

BraveFace resident clinical psychologist Dr Victoria Thompson shares seven tips to ease your mind before you go to sleep.

Seven tips for better sleep:

  1. Try to keep a consistent bedtime and wake up at the same time each day.
  2. Avoid screens at least an hour before bed…yes, that includes your smartphone!
  3. Keep it light before bedtime. Activating movies that get the adrenaline pumping, such as horror movies or violent films aren’t going to help you drift to sleep.
  4. If you work from home, keep it out of the bedroom. Use your bed for two things only – sex and sleeping.
  5. Try your best to avoid those luxury day naps no matter how sleepy you feel during the day.
  6. Keep a notepad next to your bed so you can jot down any anxious thoughts and “I must remember to’s” to get them out of your head.
  7. Get active. Incorporating even just a little movement into your day, such as a short walk around the block or some stretching will help induce those z’s more easily.

The HeadRest night drops by BraveFace are another great option before bed, to naturally support getting to sleep and staying asleep.
