Here is todays message!….


If you find it hard to sleep here are some unusual strategies worth testing:

1. Listen to bacon frying

We’re not suggesting you start cooking last thing at night obviously – but listening to a recording of a couple of rashers sizzling in the pan may well lull you off to sleep.

This kind of comforting, repetitive sound triggers Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) a combination of positive feelings, relaxation and tingling sensations, all of which encourage peaceful slumber.

2. Employ some reverse psychology

Can’t get to sleep? Try to stay awake instead. A study at the University of Glasgow found that sleep-onset insomniacs fell asleep much easier when they were instructed to try to do the opposite.

This method is known as Paradoxical Intention (PI).

By lying in bed with your eyes wide open, any anxiety associated with your inability to drop off will start to diminish. And as you become more relaxed, you’re more likely to fall asleep. Job done!

3:  Warm your feet

As your body cools, it sends sleep signals to your brain.

Placing a hot water bottle by your feet – or wearing bed socks if you prefer – redirects the blood flow to your feet and so encourages heat loss, say Swiss researchers.

4. Tense your toes

Here’s another trick with your (hopefully warm) feet: try alternately tensing and relaxing your toes for a count of 10 each time. This draws tension away from the rest of the body, helping you to relax, according to sleep experts at the University of Maryland.
