Tips and Tools To Help You Sleep

Being on top of your game takes a lot of hard work, focus, and preparation. While being great at work is something to be proud of, we often get so wrapped up in it that we forget the most important piece of the puzzle. Ourselves!

It’s now widely understood that getting enough sleep leads to greater innovation, productivity, job satisfaction, improved health and quality of life.

And did you know the following?

So, here are our tools and tips to help you sleep better.



Create a routine

If you’re having difficulty falling asleep, establishing a regular bedtime routine will help you wind down and prepare for sleep.
Making your bedroom sleep-friendly by removing TVs and other electronic gadgets, minimising light and noise, and making sure your mattress is comfy will all help. Check out the NHS’s guide on this

Block the noise

To get a full night's sleep, it is important to protect your environment against unwanted noise for the duration of your night's rest. This is even more critical when sleeping in an unfamiliar place. Using earplugs is a smart move and can help block noise so that you can sleep like a baby! 
Daniel O'Connor, Warp It's Head of Customer Happiness, swears by silicon ear plugs. You can buy them in chemists.

Remedy it the natural way

If getting to sleep or staying asleep is an ongoing problem, it’s important to figure out and address the underlying cause. But, in the meantime, alternative remedies may help you get back to sleep sooner. There are loads of natural remedies available.

Lavender, for example, is an excellent relaxant, something Daniel discovered when he bought some for his step-mother when she was struggling to sleep. Using a humidifier will fill your space with lovely fragrance while distributing the therapeutic benefits.

And a lovely cup of Chamomile tea is well-known to calm even the most hyperactive of us! The Time’s complete guide to sleep explains this and more.

In this article, experts explain the bad habits that can make you feel tired, plus simple tweaks that will help put the pep back in your step.

Sounds simple! But making sure your sleeping environment is dark and peaceful can have a significantly positive affect on your sleep. This fascinating article, charting the science of sleep, considers this and much more. 

Similarly, The Joe Rogan Experience podcast with Sleep Expert and Neuroscientist Dr. Matthew Walker, covers a myriad of interesting reasons why we not only need sleep but what happens when we don’t get enough.
