Why can’t I sleep?

Having problems sleeping (also known as insomnia) is a common issue, but it can leave you feeling exhausted with very little energy. If you are suffering with insomnia, you will commonly experience:

  • Difficulty falling asleep

  • Frequently waking during the night

  • Waking early and being unable to return to sleep

  • Feeling tired after waking

How can I improve my quality of sleep?

Having good ‘sleep hygiene’ before you go to sleep can help to improve the quality of your sleep. Sleep hygiene is a series of habits that you implement before you go to sleep. If your sleep hygiene is poor, you are more likely to experience a poor quality of sleep. Good sleep hygiene practises include:

  • Going to sleep and waking at the same time every day

  • Relaxing at least 1 hour before bed e.g. taking a bath or reading a book

  • Ensure your bedroom is dark, quiet and has a comfortable temperature 

  • Exercise regularly 

  • Make sure your bed is comfy

  • Avoid smoking or drinking alcohol and caffeine at least 6 hours before bed

  • Eat at regular time and avoid eating big meals before bed

  • Turn off screens, including smart phones, tablets and televisions before going to bed

  • Avoid naps during the day

  • Do NOT sleep in after a bad night’s sleep - try to stick to a sleep schedule

  • Hop Strobile: a natural sedative that can be used to induce sleep
