Switch off … Phones and tablets emit blue light on the same wavelength as daylight. The brain’s pineal gland won’t secrete sleep-aiding melatonin unless it thinks it’s night-time.
Eat early … Eating late means the blood will go to your gut to aid digestion, rather than the brain to aid sleep.
Sleep on your side … The cleansing process works best in this position as it aids blood flow in the brain.

Levels of the hormone cortisol are often elevated in people who are stressed (yes – that’s most of us) which can lead to insomnia.
Massage helps to balance the hormonal system and it’s proven that massage can reduce the level of cortisol by an average of 30 per cent.
When your cortisol levels are elevated you start to store fat, which can lead to weight gain.

What lifestyle and diet changes could make a difference?
Over time we inevitably lose volume in our faces, via fat, muscle and bone changes. A healthy diet with antioxidants, stopping smoking reducing alcohol and stress and wearing an effective sun screen can dramatically reduce these extrinsic ageing factors. Twin studies increasingly show that these external variables can be more important than genetics in how our skin ages.
Smoking like sun exposure causes free radical damage. This damage causes the up-regulation of enzymes such as MMP-1 that breakdown collagen and elastin. There is increasing evidence now that pollution particularly in conjunction with UV exposure causes skin ageing. Topical and oral antioxidants can help to protect against free radical damage from the above. A diet rich fruit and vegetables will supplement our bodies natural antioxidant defenses. Yellow and orange peppers for example contain carotenoids which are powerful antioxidants, while tomatoes contain lycopene that protect against sun exposure and avocados contain high levels of vitamin E, an important skin antioxidant.
Drinking plenty of water can also help you lose weight (should that be a goal for you) This is due to the fact that water can increase satiety and boost your metabolic rate. Various studies show that drinking half a litre ( of water increases metabolism by 24-30% for up to 1.5 hours.
Remember that many foods are also loaded with water. Especially water-rich fruits and vegetables – veggies in particular are an excellent choice because not only do they flood the body with nutrients but they are low glycemic, so help to avoid blood sugar imbalances.
