The past couple of days, I have found that I have been extremely tired during hospital placement. I think this is because I am not getting enough sleep, so today I decided that I would try and get at least 9 hours of sleep each night (my optimum is around 10).
This means going to sleep around 9pm, which is much earlier than usual, so here are a few ways I'm going to help myself get off to sleep earlier:
1) Get into bed by 8.30pm and read for half an hour
2) Light a relaxing candle
3) Drink a hot chocolate
4) Use a lavender scented pillow spray and sleep balm
5) Eat earlier so that I'm not too full when I get into bed
6) Stop using all devices with screens by 8.30pm
Let's see how it goes, fingers crossed I'm less tired tomorrow!
