Our ‘Sleep Hygiene For Good Sleep’ Checklist

Reading Time: 1 minute

Our external environment can have an effect on our internal environment (for example, light through the eyes affects our physiology and our hormones).

With that in mind, here’s where you’ll find the products we believe can really help set the scene for sleep.

The right kind of light at night is important

Blue/green light that is emitted from screens, and is also the dominant light from LED and energy saving light bulbs, strongly inhibits the flow of melatonin (a hormone that is produced at night to aid sleep and set the sleep/wake rhythm). This is more relevant than ever before as less people read from a book as a form of relaxation and screens are an increasing source of entertainment and work.

Blue Light Blocking Glasses for Screen Time – a practical way to protect your eyes and your sleep

These on-trend unisex glasses have a special filter that completely blocks the spectrum of blue/green light from reaching your eyes, without distorting your vision! People find it reduces eye strain and tiredness and improves sleep.

This is the best product we can recommend to you:

Epsom Bath Salts – a luxurious way to relax your body and mind

Do not underestimate the power of Epsom Salt baths. They can be very effective for getting a restful and restorative sleep. Bathing in Epsom Salts is relaxing, pain relieving and detoxifying all at once. Magnesium in the Epsom salts crosses the skin barrier extremely well whilst the sulphate encourages detoxification at the same time.

We have provided two of the most economical options for you to be able to enjoy 2-3 large mugs of Epsom salts per bath.

***Our top tip – add a handful of bicarbonate of soda to your bath to assist magnesium absorption across the skin***

These are the best products we can recommend to you.

Additional Information

We do not make these additional sleep aids, but they are recommended by Sophie in her clinic and you can get them through our Amazon referral shop which links directly to the supplier or manufacturer. As a thank you for the referral we get a small percentage of the purchase price which helps us to keep our website running.

You may need something from each step or just one small adjustment, everyone is different. You can try several additional remedies or each one systematically for example:

Do give each remedy a good four to six weeks to feel the full benefits (your sleep quality and an increased sense of well-being are good indicators they are working for you). Although you can start to feel the benefits of taking these supplements quickly, full recovery can take longer for some and we believe that health and sleep are something we have to take care of daily. But, like Sophie and Sarah, you CAN get your sleep back.

Rest assured we are here to help you sleep. Stick with us and we will help good quality sleep become more than just a dream.
