Difficulty sleeping?

I was told many years ago that we should use the seasons to guide our sleep patterns. It makes so much sense if you think about it, because we all know how much easier it is to get up in spring/summer and how difficult it is in autumn/winter. I have always been a good sleeper and realised it's because I have naturally been following the seasons without even knowing it.

Can you go to bed at 8pm? In summer, probably not, but in winter I bet you could, but we can feel guilty and that it's much too early so stay up watching tv until it seems 'the right time to go up'

I challenge you to try and change things for the next few months. It's colder, so we naturally want to curl up and be cosy and there is no better place to do that than ..... in bed. Go on, try it. If you find it hard to fall asleep I would recommend trying some, or all of the ideas below. Don't try them all at once or you won't know what has worked for you.

Have a great week
