Tip One: Better Sleeping Conditions
For me I found that having curtains which had light seeping through kept me awake at night, as I primarily slept when it was getting light, I found it harder. So I invested in some blackout curtains making it easier to sleep no matter the time. I also invested in a new bed, my old frame and mattress were one which my landlord supplied so I often felt uncomfortable when trying to sleep.
Tip Two: Sleeping Aids
The Interdependent Pharmacy offer a small range of aids to take before sleeping including Nytol which includes an anti histamine which often makes you drowsy, making sleeping that little bit easier. Nytol recommend creating a bedtime routine which works for you. Whether that includes getting a new comfy mattress and having a hot drinking alongside taking a sleeping aid such as Nytol.
Tip Three: Try Sleep At The Same Time
My problem always used to be going to sleep at a weird time in the morning and getting up in the early afternoon. I found it hard to get a pattern going, I try to get into bed at a regular time and even if I'm not sleeping, at least i'm laying in bed getting comfy.
Tip Four: No Phones.
I often didn't realise part of my issue was my phone, I would sit up on my phone all night and wonder why it was impossible to fall asleep. Your phone being lit up often makes your eyes stay awake as well the concentration which goes into using your phone.
