Simply The Rest

It’s time to improve the quality and quantity of your sleep.

Stick to a Schedule
In order for us to function at our best, adults require around eight hours of sleep per night, so do yourself a favour and stick to a sleep routine.

Stay Focused
When bedtime rolls around, the aim is to wind down, not distract or excite yourself. Keep your phone, laptop, and TV at a safe distance from you when your head hits the pillow.

Keep it Clean
Consuming stimulants (caffeine or nicotine, for instance) too close to bedtime will keep you awake; alcohol will make you feel sleepy, but the resulting sleep will be of poor quality. Best to stick to water or milk.

Sleep Awareness Week begins July 3. If you’re having trouble sleeping and think you might have a sleep disorder, you can contact us at or call 02 9241 1577.
