What to eat
You know that old saying that cheese gives you nightmares? It actually seems to be true!
So what can we eat to help us fall asleep quicker, and stay asleep?
Sarah recommends foods containing lots of Vitamin B. "Lack of sleep can be both the result and cause of stress. During these stressful times, B vitamins are used up at a rapid rate," Sarah says.
Vitamin B6 is particularly good because it's needed to make melatonin, which is a sleep-enhancing hormone. Fish like salmon and tuna, as well as chickpeas and bananas, have lots of Vitamin B6.
Foods with a lot of magnesium in them are also good. "This has a natural calming effect," says Sarah.
Also, it balances out those blood sugar levels, which when off kilter can stop you sleeping. Whole grains have a good dose of magnesium in them too, so go for wholegrain bread and pastas.
