If you're having trouble sleeping. These 3 things could be causing the issue.
1. Your phone, your e-reader, your tablet. In fact.. any device!
These devices emit blue light which tricks the brain into staying awake for longer. As tempting as it is to have a little read in bed to help you sleep, it could actually be doing more harm than good. If you love to read before light's out, try switching back to a physical book (remember them?) and you might find yourself drifting off with more ease than before. Plus, there's always something nice about turning the pages, isn't there?
A lot of clutter can exacerbate stress levels, whether you're a Feng Shui devotee or not. Keep your spaces clean and neat and you could find sleep becomes easier.

Sorry. This is a tough one, but animals in the bedroom might not be the most healthy thing in the world. Find yourself bunged up and sniffling in the morning? Your furry friend could be the cause. Some of us have mild allergies to our pets that we don't really know about and could put it down to hay fever or colds.
Larger animals like dogs can hog the space leaving you curled in a corner, leaving you with aches and pains in the morning. If your pet isn't causing you issues, then don't ban them for the sake of it, but if you suspect they might be? It could be time to get tough!
