Would You Like to Improve Your Sleep?

Sleep is so important but it is often effected when we have stress or worries.  It maybe that you struggle to initially get to sleep, or you may wake in the night.  Often it is our thoughts that prevent us from sleeping.  When we don’t get the sleep that we hope for then it can cause us more anxiety as we worry about our ability to function and make decisions.  The more we worry the harder it becomes to sleep forming a vicious cycle.

The good news is that there are different strategies that you can try that can improve your chances of a better night sleep.  Having a regular routine of when you go to bed can help us get into better sleep patterns.  Journaling and recording thoughts about our day before going to bed can help us to park some of our thinking before trying to sleep. 

You may also like to try mindfulness and tapping techniques to help improve your sleep.  Rutger’s University found that people who regularly practice mindfulness produce 97% more melatonin, which aids sleep.  The production of melatonin can be increased by as much as 300 per cent for some people. Tapping helps to reduce the production of cortisol, the stress hormone, making it easier to get to sleep.

Please find attached a link to a video about sleep which includes a tapping and mindfulness practice that you can try. 

My book ‘What Happy Teachers Do’ is available for pre-order on Amazon. It is a three step self-care guide to support you inside and outside the classroom.
