My Top 10 ‘Sleep Like A Baby’ Hacks

Despite most ladies coming to me to get fit, lose weight and tone up in our Fat Loss Mastery Body Transformation Programme, sometimes we end up finding that altering your lifestyle habits, routines and behaviours impacts your sleep…


And – finally – gets to the bottom of this:


Stress >> escalated by tiredness >> binge and eat your emotions >> feel like a failure >> start again Monday.



And this isn’t your fault. It’s sometimes the simple case of not prioritising the things that are important to you <<< as this leads to you spending more time on the things that you need to do but won’t give you the rewards you want…


You see, every evening, my daughter HAS to have some food, have her bath, and have a little massage before drinking some milk to send her off to sleep. 


Its ‘ROUTINE’ <<< Read that again!


Because your body loves routine. Yet, for me and you, sometimes we’re up late watching Love Island (I blame Mrs Fruci) and other times I’m just working late because I messed around earlier in the day procrastinating and doing the jobs that COULD have waited until tomorrow…


So, anyway, here’s 10 ‘so simple you won’t even do them’ sleep hack’ which could be the SECRET ingredient you need to ditch the stress >>> escalated by tiredness >> comfort eating cycle.


Be honest, and score yourself out of 10:


1.Be Regular: 



Go to bed and get up at the same time (your body loves consistency). 

 

Crying baby? Just try to recover your sleep debt OR try your very best to go sleep at the same time as your baby (as I try and do…apart from right now, of course ;-))



2.Stop working at the SAME time each day: 

 

Have a power-down hour before bed (read, talk to your family…take your foot off of the accelerator)



3.Turn off the iPhone, iPad and TV 

 

(if that’s how you ‘relax’ that’s fine but avoid too much light in the 30 minutes before bed. Try putting your TV on a timer so it switches off…as you do ;-))



4.Use Headspace before bed 

 

(free app) to help you switch off



5.Exercise: 

 

If this gives you energy, try to avoid it later in the day…if it mellows you out…do it later in the day!



6. Get some light in the morning: 

 

Go for a walk during the day or even at lunch



7. Journal every evening: 

 

Note down 3 things you did well that day (finish on a WIN! Everything else can wait)



8. Stay hydrated BUT: 

 

Don’t drink too close to bed (similar for eating as this can make you get up in the night)



9.Try Magnesium Citrate for a weak bladder if you’re up in the night weeing!



10. Avoid caffeine after 4pm
