If you’re anything like I am then sometimes lunch is a bit of a problem. Breakfast is easy. Shakes seamlessly fall into our morning routine as we go about starting our day, taking comfort in knowing that we’re preparing ourselves well for the tasks that lie ahead. Supper is our main meal of the day and it signals the beginning of our wind-down. But lunch? Lunch often gets forgotten Luckily, for those days when I find myself unprepared, a box of Herbalife Shake Bars makes for the best sort of hero.

- Balanced essential nutrients for a complete healthy meal replacement

We discussed last week that sometimes it takes a little effort to establish a good sleeping routine. Elusive sleep can be an absolute drain on your energy levels and after a while you might start to feel like you’re going just a little bit mad. Not ideal. There are some things that you can do to help
Here are some more sleeping tips to try to make sure that you get those 8 hours in!
- Don’t Toss and Turn – If you still haven’t fallen asleep after twenty minutes of trying it might be best to turn the light back on and do a bit of reading until you’re ready to fall asleep again. Otherwise you’re setting yourself up for a night of tossing and turning which is most certainly not ideal.
- Keep the Bedroom Optimised for Sleep – Remove the television and other electronics and keep your bedroom a tech-free zone. This reinforces the idea that your bedroom is for sleeping and your body will condition itself to that idea.
- Limit Your Alcohol Intake – While alcohol might help you fall asleep, once the depressive effect wears off it may have the opposite effect and cause you to wake instead.
- Nap Less – Of course it makes sense that struggling to sleep at night can lead to needing to nap during the day, but napping may disrupt your sleep cycle so if you’re having a problem sleeping you might need to consider forcing yourself to skip the afternoon siestas.
- Try to Avoid Sleeping Tablets – If they’re unavoidable, work alongside your doctor to figure out how to use them effectively and for as little time as possible.
Do you have any sleeping tips?
We all know that good sleep is essential to our overall wellbeing, and yet for so many of us sleep can be an elusive little rat, leaving us staring wide-eyed at dark ceilings until the early hours of the morning, and then refusing to leave once the alarm goes off. We do, however, tend to often leave our sleeping patterns to chance. So much care is taken when it comes to preparing the foods that fuel our bodies, and time is carved out for the activities we take part in to ensure that our bodies remain strong and fit. Perhaps it is time to do the same for our sleeping patterns.
Here are some quick tips for a better night’s sleep:
- Watch Your Diet – Make sure that you go to bed neither hungry nor too full. Both states may contribute to keeping you awake.
- Cut Down on the Caffeine – While coffee might be helping you wake up in the morning, it could also be contributing to keeping you up at night. Try to limit you caffeine intake after lunch and see if it makes a difference to your sleep schedule.
- Reconsider the Smoking – Aside from the obvious health risks related to the consumption of nicotine, it can also keep you awake at night.
- Stick to a Consistent Sleep Schedule – A sleep schedule will train your brain to be tired at the right time of day. It’s important to continue waking and going to bed at the same night on a daily basis, even on weekends.
- Exercise Daily – As little as a twenty minute walk in the early evenings can make a huge difference to your night’s sleep.
The smallest changes can make a big difference when it comes to a good night’s sleep.
Good luck, and sleep tight…
