Sleep - Parent workshop

A huge thank you to Thought-Full for coming to visit and talk about Sleep!
Some top tips were:

1)     Gaming activates your brain, no matter how ‘relaxing’ you may find it. A warm, comfy bed that is only used to sleep is the way forward.

2)     Regular exercise – make sure you do some form of exercise every day.

3)     Reducing background noise and distractions – have some Post-its to write down anything that is keeping you awake.

4)     Your body has a ‘clock’ – work to it and not against it. Keep a routine and wake up at the same time, even if it is a weekend. Children should be getting around 10 hours sleep each night.

5)     Avoid caffeine and sugar – go with warm milk before bed

6)     Retrain your brain – no napping and only sleep in bed – avoid children using their bed for anything else other than sleep.
