With the current UK temperature fluctuating more than petrol prices (quite something), it's going to inevitably throw your sleeping pattern off.

Ignoring your disturbed sleeping pattern can lead to long-term health concerns, so we're here to lend a helping hand to help you get a restful forty winks.
So, without further ado, here are 5 Chinese herbal remedies to help promote peaceful sleep...
What causes disturbed sleep?
Sleep disturbances can often be a problem for older adults, as they experience a change in their natural sleep pattern resulting in less time in deep sleep, leading to more likelihood to be easily awoken.
Other sleep disorders such as Restless Leg Syndrome and Nocturia (frequent urination) may be affected by fluctuating temperatures, causing your body to become subconsciously more active when asleep.
Combining these with high levels of stress, anxiety and restless is a recipe for a disturbed night of tossing and turning.
How can I make short-term fixes?
If you've been suffering with sleep disturbances for a few days or weeks at a time, some quick fixes to help you get back to restful nights are:
- Keeping room temperature cool
- Not eating/drinking just before bed
- Starting to wind down your evening 1 hour before sleep
- Keep your mobile phone out of the bedroom
- Avoid watching TV just before you drift off
- Gentle breathing in and out whilst laying down
What are some long-term solutions?
