Here at Shelu we are genuinely committed to helping you sleep better, WHY? I have previously struggled with sleep health myself and I am passionate about helping others do the same.
Lauren Hale, who an Associate Professor of Preventive Medicine and board member of the National Sleep Foundation – says that generally people who have more opportunities and more control over their lives are better sleepers. So how does someone become a better sleeper? Here are some tips we have found that revolutionised our sleep:

Empty your thoughts
We are often juggling a million times at a time. It is often when we lie down in bed and try and fall asleep that every positive and negative thought or to do list comes flooding back in. A solution – before you get into bed write a tomorrow list.
Everything that is on your mind write it down. Start with 5 minutes and if you need longer take it. Once you shut your eyes and other thoughts flood in – hop out of bed and start writing. An odd thing happens over time, as you practice you actually get better at emptying your thoughts.
I would love to hear from you and what remedies you use!
