Presenter Are you feeling stressed and unhappy? Do you have low energy levels? Well, it might be that you aren’t getting enough sleep. Lucy Chang is joining us today to give us some tips on getting a good night’s sleep. Lucy, why is sleep so important?
Lucy Well, you’ve already mentioned some of the effects of not sleeping, but over time the results can be more serious. Lack of sleep increases the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease too. Getting a good night’s sleep is just as important to our health as diet and exercise.
Presenter Lucy, are sleeping tablets the best solution for someone who can’t sleep?
Lucy Sleeping tablets are one option of course, but there are other more natural methods you can try if you’re having problems sleeping.
Presenter For example?
Lucy Let’s start with lavender. People have been using the flowers of the lavender bush for hundreds of years and recent research shows that the plant really does work. The aroma of lavender flowers has been found to help people sleep better and for longer. One way of using it is to add lavender oil to a bath, and another is to put a few drops on your pillow. Interestingly, lavender seems to work better for women, possibly because they have a stronger sense of smell.
Presenter Right. I’m not a woman, so what can I do?
Lucy Well, you might like to try some light therapy. As you know, it’s light that tells us when to go to bed and when to get up. If you find it difficult to fall asleep, you may need more morning light, so try taking a walk first thing. On the other hand, if you’re waking up too early, you might need more afternoon light, so try taking a walk in the late afternoon.
Presenter Light therapy. Right. I might try that. Have you got any other tips, Lucy?
Lucy Yes. Muscle relaxation seems to work for a lot of people.
Presenter Muscle relaxation? How does that work?
Lucy Well, studies suggest that this makes you fall asleep more quickly, and it can also help you get back to sleep if you’ve woken up during the night. You have to be lying down for muscle relaxation to work. Start at your feet. Breathe in deeply and sense the weight of your toes. Focus on any tension in them. Now, breathe out and let all the tension leave your toes. Then move on to your feet, calves, knees, thighs, stomach, chest, hands, arms, shoulders, neck, head and face. With any luck, you should be asleep by the time you reach the face, but if not, just start the process all over again!
Presenter Thank you, Lucy, for all those tips. And now it’s time for …
