If you're fed up with feeling restless then you're not alone - it's thought that 1 in 3* of us regularly struggle to get a good night's sleep.

Missing your beauty sleep?

Sleep can be upset by anything from too much caffeine to a hectic work and family life.

But sleep is a really important part of our physical and mental health, helping to boost our immune system, drive our metabolism, rejuvenate our skin and give our brains time to process the days events.

While it's not always easy to switch off, understanding the ideal amount of sleep for you can make a real difference to your health and wellbeing.

It's not all about 8 hours

Everyone has different needs when it comes to sleep so don't get too hung up on getting a perfect 8 hours. But you also shouldn't expect to run on 4 hours a night forever either. If you regularly wake up tired or resort to catching up at the weekend, then you need to improve the quality of sleep you get across the week.

The key thing is recognising that you don't need to suffer endless sleepless nights before doing something about it.

Take back bedtime

You might have already tried a few techniques to relax and improve your sleep. From keeping your room cool to taking a hot bath before bed, and even writing to-do lists for the next day, there's a whole heap of ways to unwind.

If you can't sleep, it's worth taking the time to find the right combination of approaches for you and making them part of a regular bedtime routine that leaves you rested and refreshed in the morning.

For whatever's keeping you awake... Say Good Nytol

We all know that sleep is vital to our health and well-being, but when it comes to sleeplessness and getting ready for bed, we can either lie down and hope for the best, or take some simple steps to help coax our minds and bodies back into a healthy sleep rhythm. To get a good night's sleep, there are generally three things you need to focus on:

Sleep Friendly Environment

A Relaxed Body

A Quiet Mind

To give yourself the best shot at having an awesome night's sleep - here's a few things you can do to help:

Get into a routine

One of the best things you can do is to establish a regular relaxing bedtime routine. This signals to the body that it is time for sleep and allows you to put the stresses of the day behind you. The body craves regularity, so having a routine and going to bed / waking up at the same time every day can have a positive effect on the body and make you less likely to hit snooze on your alarm.

Keep your cool

Let a little light in

Love your bed

Silent Night

Relax and unwind

Switch off and prepare for drift off

Raise a glass

Go natural

Night time nudge

Don't force it
