Improve your chances of getting a good night’s sleep with these practical hints and tips from Reason To Be
The Team Bath wellbeing team return this week with a new series of episodes providing practical advice and guidance on getting a good night’s sleep.
Sleeping well is vitally important for both our physical and mental health. It helps your body recover and repair, improves your immune function, maximises your athletic ability, improves concentration and productivity, and reduces stress among many other positive benefits.
If you have been struggling to sleep during lockdown or want to improve your chances of a good rest, occupational psychologists Keith Goddard and Aurea Fellows of Reason To Be look at some simple behavioural changes you could make to change your sleep pattern.
Each episode is around 15 minutes long and the first looks at things you can do during the daytime to boost your chances of a good night’s sleep, including regular and varied exercise, and how circadian rhythm – your internal clock – is affected by your Vitamin D, zinc and magnesium intake.
Keith and Aurea have previously provided a series of informative videos about the Five Pillars of Wellbeing – your emotional, nutritional, mental, social and physical environments, and how to control them. All are available to watch now in the following YouTube playlist.
