How to get a better night’s sleep

Gemma Hurditch from the College of Naturopathic Medicine helps us sleep well

Things to do

Getting a good night’s sleep is a tonic for everyone, and yet it doesn’t make the priority list often enough. Poor sleep is now a known risk factor for health deterioration, including obesity and all-cause mortality risk, so it is certainly worth improving our skills at getting a good night’s kip.

Eat well – making sure we are happily satiated is one way of improving our chances for better sleep. We should be comfortably full, but not ‘stuff ed’. Most people feel good eating dinner 2-3 hours before bed. If you have a particularly fast metabolism, you may get away with a shorter gap between eating and bedtime. If you are hungry after dinner, having a small handful of (pre-soaked) nuts can improve your blood sugar levels and promote sleep. Opt for whole-food, minimally processed, nutritious meals. Refined or takeaway foods are often full of additives, preservatives, trans-fats, salt, sugars and oils, which can be difficult to digest and, as a result, keep you awake.
