For many of us, getting the right kind of sleep (or enough of it) can be tricky. We’re often bogged down with the stresses and strains of everyday life and find it hard to prioritise sleep over other things. But sleep is really important. We perform better on a good night’s sleep and are more likely to be in a better head space. But how do you get a good night’s sleep?

We’re often reminded of what we shouldn’t be doing if we want to get a good night’s sleep. Don’t take electronic devices to bed and don’t drink alcohol or caffeine too late in the evening (to name a few). But rather than focusing on the ‘don’ts’, as a registered nurse and mindfulness expert here at Bupa, I want to focus  on the ‘dos’.  Take a look at the infographic below to find out what you can do to get a good night’s sleep.

Even healthy people become unwell sometimes. Health insurance can help you get prompt access to the treatment and support you need to help you get back on the road to recovery. Learn more with our useful guide to understanding health insurance.
