DID YOU KNOW: Almost 36% of UK Adults struggle to sleep at least once per week?

There are many factors that can influence a good night’s sleep, some easier to control than others — from work stress to physical injury & illnesses. It’s no wonder that quality sleep is sometimes elusive.

There is a strong link between sleep and health. Lack of quality sleep is usually a common indication of stress, led by underlying problems such as anxiety or depression.

Managing sleep and potential sleep disorders is a critical feature of keeping your mental health in check & it’s majorly important to prioritise sleep.

Managing sleep can:

– Boost your immune system to battle any illnesses
– Prevent weight fluctuations by balancing hormones
– Strengthen heart health & reduce blood pressure
– Improve your mood
– Increase productivity & concentration
– Promote higher exercise performance
– Improve cognitive function & memory


Whilst the benefits of sleep are seemingly endless, it’s easy to let lifestyle choices drastically dictate your sleep cycles & more importantly, your mental health.

Despite this, it may only take small changes to attitude & lifestyle in order to help us sleep better. Here are some top tips it’s worth trying to manage your sleep more effectively:

Tip 1: Maintain Regular Sleeping Hours

It’s important to train your body to respond to regular sleeping patterns. This programmes the brain and internal body clock to get used to a set routine.
It’s recommended to get 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night. By working out what time you need to wake up, you can set a regular bedtime schedule.

Tip 2: Wind Down Before Sleeping

Allow your brain & body some time to relax before trying to sleep. This could be through avoiding the use of smartphones & tablets, and instead reading a book or practising some relaxation exercises such as Yoga.

Tip 3: Manage Your Diet

Avoid high energy meals & drinks in the evening. Caffeine heavy drinks such as Coffee and heavy meat or carbohydrate filled meals can usually lead to discomfort whilst trying to sleep.

Tip 4: Try Syrenity Water Emulsion

Our consumers have often reported the powerful benefits of CBD and their correlation with management of sleep & rest. If all else fails, why not try a natural, organic, vegan friendly alternative?
