Sleep is one of the most important ingredients of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Whether you embark on weekly training regimes, enjoy a little exercise or are just trying to improve how you live; sleep can be one of the most crucial factors.
For those pushing their bodies to the limit on personal trainer courses or who hit the gym hard most days, sleep is as vital as what you eat and how you train. Even if you're not pushing yourself to that level it's still vital for our daily lives.
Here we've got a few tips on maintaining a healthy sleeping pattern.
Eating late at night can lead to interrupted sleep and indigestion. If you can help it try to not eat anything too heavy after the 9 o'clock cut off point. Whilst certain foods are good for you in increasing your protein intake, if you eat them too late at night the digestive energy required to break up the protein could well cause you indigestion.
The stimulating effects of caffeine can potentially last up to eight hours, so clearly if you consume these too late it could have a significant detrimental impact on your sleeping patterns. If you crave something hot in the afternoons and evenings try decaf or herbal teas and avoid caffeinated drinks.
It's important to keep a regular pattern of sleep, which involves going to bed and getting up at the same time. Getting into a routine like this getting an adequate number of hours each night will keep your body in check, cut out any potential napping in the day and also improve the quality of your sleep.
After a workout you not only need to get a proper amount of good quality sleep, you need to allow your muscles to relax while you're not awake. With that in mind, the most stable position for your spine is sleeping on your back. If you suffer from lower back stress after a hard training session you may want to sleep with a pillow under your legs. If you have to sleep on your side it's worthwhile using a supporting pillow between your legs or raising the top leg towards your chest for some support to your lower back.
You really need to create optimal conditions to allow your body to rest properly, so simple touches like keeping your room dark, quiet and at a good temperature (not too hot or cold) can make a huge difference.

Was very prompt in getting me set up and everything sorted, made sure I was aware of everything, however i decided to cancel due to it being not the right time for me financially.
the customer service was great
I would recommend this course. They call you back or phone promptly if you have a problem. The course is full of information for the student to learn.
Online teaching courses initiated by this platform is remarkable. Anybody who has fewer resources can take a loan for completing this online course.
So far they have been brilliant supporters very efficient in answering the emails.
Holly was very helpful. She fully explained the course and all of the support that was provided during and after the course had finished. Very impressed with my experience, thank you.
Just started course but very helpful and always return calls emails
My experience so far with the cyber security Technologist e-learning is brilliant because I can do it when I'm free through the day (as I work nights) but also whenever I've got the time.
The course layout is simple and easy to follow, the information provided in your learning section is simple and easily broke down to be able to understand the information your taking in.
I've had emails from my tutor and careers support office explaining how their there to help me through every step of the way.
They also give you live prodiction on when you should finish your on course (depending on how long you put in daily) From my personal experience so far I haven't found any faults or wrongs with training platform or from the help of tutors/ career officers so.... This is why I have gave it a 5 start rating.
I am happy with the service provided thus far. All advisors have communicated well the course aims and I have a career support officer! I am looking forward to my course.
