Can’t Sleep [Solutions]

Can’t sleep?

One of the most powerful ways to set your body clock is to get at least 10 minutes of natural sunshine within an hour of waking.

If you can’t get outside for natural light, try using a ring light or ‘happy light’ indoors for a longer period.

Observing the evening sunset can also be a powerful way to set your body clock. It’s remarkable that your body knows the difference between morning/evening sun, but it’s because the light waves are actually different.

Here are a few other, more obvious but helpful tips:

  • Reduce overhead lights at night.
  • Enjoy caffeinated drinks before noon.
  • Exercise earlier in the day.
  • Keep the room cool.
  • Avoid alcohol before bed.
  • Include magnesium rich foods (and/or a supplement)

Developing healthy sleep habits is something that we discuss a great deal in my 6 week Menopause Makeover Challenge.
