A good night’s sleep is key. We must ensure we are achieving the recommended seven hours every night. When we sleep our bodies can repair, boost concentration and increase our energy for the day ahead. Without it, our bodies are not able to perform as well as we would like, taking a toll on the day ahead leading to bad skin, tired eyes and poor concentration.
At times, falling asleep can seem like an impossible goal when the clock strikes bedtime. Our work life can leave us feeling stressed causing us to lose sleep therefore effecting our productivity the next day. A change in temperature can also be a contributing factor, such as seasonal changes.
Cold Winter Nights
Although winter brings in cooler, drier air (as well as warm fireplaces and cosy knits) the decrease in sunlight gives us less exposure to Vitamin D which helps with serotonin production in our bodies. Serotonin is important for our sleep cycle which is why we may find ourselves waking up in the night during winter months. Winter is also the time for nasty colds and flus, another reason to have a bad night’s sleep.
Balmy Summer Nights
The warm balmy nights we have throughout summer are yes, perfect for little summer dresses however the heat can cause us to become restless, increase our body temperature and lead to a lot of tossing and turning in the night. Being hot can prevent your body from reaching “deep sleep” which is when our skin is repaired and rejuvenated. Plus, let’s not forget all the allergies summer can bring for a bad night’s sleep including hayfever and heat rashes.
