Seven secrets to rest, not stress this Christmas!

The festive season is a time of joy and excitement for all - and while there are plenty of things to look forward to, many people also experience higher levels of stress! Additional pressures on our finances, time and relationships can leave many people feeling anxious, over-tired and unable to get a good night's sleep.

Rather than turning to medication or a few extra celebratory drinks, there are natural ways you can keep calm over the festive season, including a new 100 per cent natural alternative solution called NightWave Sleep Assistant.

Sleep expert Glen Farebrother, Managing Director of Sleep Solutions (which distributes NightWave Sleep Assistant in Australia), says there are some simple steps people can follow to ensure they are well rested over Christmas, these include:

Glen's Seven Secrets To Getting A Good Night's Sleep This Christmas

1.    Keep the bedroom, free from distractions and stimulation – make your bed a 'sleep only' zone.  When you watch TV or read you associate bed with being awake. Bed should be for two things: sleep and hanky panky.

2.  Maintain a regular schedule. Try to go to sleep and ideally wake up at roughly the same time each day.  Try and get to sleep before midnight.

3.  Reduce exposure to bright lights at night - try to avoid using your mobile phone or computer before bed - these stimulate you and disrupt the production of your natural sleep hormone 'melatonin'.

4.  Enjoy a warm bath before bed – it will help to lower your body temperature when you're in bed, which encourages sleep.

5. Try to exercise during the day – first thing in the morning is ideal. You won't talk yourself out of it, and exercise helps promote sleep. If you exercise outside, the exposure to bright light will also help reset your natural body clock.

6.  Limit alcohol and caffeine intake as they can affect sleep patterns and try not to eat too much straight before bed

7.  As hard as it seems, take some time out for yourself each day. Do some yoga or meditation later in the evening, read a book, spend time with family.
