You're angry and irritable - or even depressed and you can't work out why? It just can't be your sleep, because you get 8 hours every night..... can it?
How do you know you are getting the right quality of sleep? Deep, restful and refreshing sleep is one thing that genuinely eludes many people. For a start, try to avoid the following things:
1. Caffeinated beverages (tea, coffee, energy drinks).
2. Sugary drinks late in the evenings.
3. Heavy evening meals.
4. Alcohol (yes it can help you get to sleep, but it's a depressant and messes with your chemical balance).
5. Stressful situations.
Deep breathing exercises before you go to bed can really help. Also, the Monroe Institute has developed sound techniques to help you sleep. Click here to see a product that can really help you get 8 good hours every night.
