What is insomnia?

- Find it hard to go to sleep
- Waking up several times during the night
- Waking up early and being unable to return to sleep
- Feeling tired after waking up
- Unable to nap in the day, even if you’re tired
- Feeling tired and easily annoyed during the day
- Difficulty concentrating due to being tired
Insomnia can happen for a variety of reasons. The most common causes of insomnia include:
- Room temperature that is too hot or too cold
- Uncomfortable bed
- Consuming alcohol, caffeine or nicotine
- Recreational drugs
- Jet lag
- Shift work
- Some illnesses
How can you improve your quality of sleep?
It is possible to improve insomnia by having good ‘sleep hygiene’ before bedtime. Sleep hygiene is a series of practises or habits that you fulfil before you go to sleep. If you have poor sleep hygiene, you are more likely to experience sleep problems. Good sleep hygiene practises include:
- Going to bed and waking up at the same time every day
- Relax at least 1 hour before bed – e.g. take a bath or read a book
- Make sure your bedroom is dark and quiet
- Exercise regularly
- Ensure your bed is comfy
- Avoid smoking or drinking alcohol, tea or coffee at least 6 hours before bed
- Eat at regular times and avoid eating a big meal before bed
- Exercise at least 4 hours before going to bed
- Turn off televisions, smart phones and other electrical devices before going to bed
- Avoid naps during the day
- Don’t sleep in after a bad night’s sleep – try to keep to a sleep schedule
How can Nytol One a Night help you get to sleep?
The active ingredient in Nytol Herbal is valerian root which has traditionally been used to promote calm and restful sleep. It’s perfect for those who prefer a natural sleep remedy rather than a sleeping pill with an active ingredient that is a medicine or drug. It contains a higher dose of valerian (385mg) compared with other Nytol herbal products, so you only need to take one tablet to aid better quality sleep. Try Nytol One a Night for a simple solution for temporary sleeplessness and wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day.
