Eat your way to better sleep
Most people will go through a period in their life where they have difficulty getting to sleep.
For those who can't nod off, it can become a real source of panic. Sometimes people will find themselves nervous, agitated and anxious in both the day time and before bed.
If you're getting worried about your sleeping patterns, then fear not!
First and foremost, remember that this is perfectly normal, and can often be fixed through lifestyle or dietary changes.
Many people find it helpful to amend their eating habits and dietary choices. Food can impact every part of our life, including sleep.
Finding it hard to get your 40 winks is often down to anxiety.
People find themselves tossing and turning at night, going over the stresses of the day or the worries of tomorrow.
Dairy has been known to help calm you, especially before bed.
"Calcium is effective in stress reduction and stabilisation of nerve fibres, including those in the brain," says Dr. Dalton-Smith.
Try a glass of milk or some Greek yoghurt to forget the trivialities of the day and snooze your way into tomorrow.
Fishing for a dream
The majority of fish is packed with vitamin B6 - the little substance that makes melatonin (a sleep-inducing hormone triggered by darkness).
Many specialists recommend having something like salmon for your dinner, turning the lights off and just letting the sleep take over.
Bananas, well-known for being rich in potassium, are also a good source of Vitamin B6.
They also contain tryptophan, which converts to serotin - the brains key calmer, ideal for restless sleepers.
Plop a 'nana on your bedside table to ensure you wolf one down before bed time.

Since the cold press presses the produce to extract the oil, no heat is involved. ... You get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients when you apply cold pressed oil on your face.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Hello Asma, Thank you for your message. Being a carrier oil, Pomegranate oil is safe to apply on the skin without dilution. However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
