The Sleep Council suggests that you ‘press reset on your routine’ if you’re struggling to sleep, and with a National Sleep In Day occurring on October 29 you could use that date to do it. “As the day on which the clocks go back an hour for British winter time – and we all get an extra hour in bed – it’s the perfect time to readjust your routine if you’ve recently started having problems sleeping,” said Lisa Artis of The Sleep Council. “As we approach winter and leave long daylight hours behind us, National Sleep In Day provides a great opportunity to reassess our sleeping habits and look at what could be causing any sleep problems. Our 30 Day Better Sleep Plan can really help people achieve improvements in their sleep – and enjoying the extra hour in bed on October 29 could well help to kickstart the winter routine!”
Earlier this year, The Sleep Council created The 30 Day Better Sleep Plan to help people wanting to improve their sleep and prevent more serious and prolonged issues. The 18-point question and answer format, available for free on the website builds a downloadable tailored plan which people are encouraged to follow for 30 days using The Sleep Council’s sleep diary to track improvements. It covers everything from bed times to alcohol consumption to pre-bedtime routines.
