The Sleep Council SC-logo-smilies-bed-lo-res-300x230 Six Strategies For A Successful Sleep-In  Who doesn’t love National Sleep In Day? It’s the day the clocks go back, this year Sunday October 25.

Want to make the most of your extra hour in bed? Then here’s our top tips for a successful sleep-in:

1. Remember to switch the alarm off before you go to sleep at night. And unplug any phones in the room and ensure that any radios or televisions are not set to come on at any time in the morning.

2. Make sure you close the curtains – preferably good heavy ones that will block out the daylight that can disturb your mid-morning slumber.

3. Make sure you are sleeping on a good bed. An old one with chronic roll-together mattress and creaky springs is not conducive to a good night’s sleep, let alone a lie-in.

4. Monitor temperature in the room. A room that’s too hot or too cold, too stuffy or too draughty can disturb sleep. A room temperature of around 16-18°C (60-65°F) is usually sufficient for getting a good night’s sleep. Anything over 24°C (71°F) is more likely to cause restlessness and temperatures around 12-13°C (53-55°F) are usually too cool to be able to drop off.

5. Remember, the bigger your bed, the less the chance your sleep will be disturbed by your partner.

6. If you have young children, make sure it’s your partner who has to get up – leaving you with a lovely lie-in!

Enjoy!
