Better Yourself by Improving Your Sleep Hygiene

The phrase “sleep hygiene” has been thrown around a lot in the last few years. That is because it is something that encompasses a lot of different practices that all tie into the habits that are built around sleep. Those habits will make a huge difference in the way that every single person sleeps, both for the good and the bad. 


What is Included in Sleep Hygiene?

  • Eating Habits
  • How Much Time You Spend in Bed?
  • What Time You Go to Sleep
  • Using Comfortable Sheets
  • Workout Times
  • Alcohol Consumption
  • Bedroom Temperature
  • And Many More


How Can Good Sleep Hygiene Improve Your Life?

The better your sleep hygiene is, the happier and healthier you will be in the long run. Here are a few ways that improving your sleep hygiene can help you live a better life.
 
When you are well-rested, you are much less likely to get sick or injured. You are less likely to get sick because your body has time to build up immunities to and fight against the bacteria and viruses you come across during the day. You are less likely to get injured because your muscles will have more time to heal from any strenuous activity you do and stay in good shape. This will help you to be more coordinated and less accident-prone.
 
You will also be able to use your brain to think through all of the possible positive and negative outcomes of a decision, which will help you to make better decisions than you would be able to without getting a full night’s sleep. 
 
Sleeping well means that your brain will be working at its full capacity, and you’ll which means that you’ll be able to do more without wearing yourself out more than you should. This will help you to get through the day without taking a nap.

A Message from our CEO

The health and wellbeing of our guests, members and employees is and always has been, at the heart of our business. As a result of the Prime Minister’s announcement on 20th March, it with deep sadness that we have taken the decision to close Eden Hall and Hoar Cross Hall until further notice. Though we genuinely hope to be welcoming you back sooner, rather than later we will closely monitor government updates to ensure we are keeping our team members, customers and members safe.

In these unprecedented times, we have been genuinely touched by the understanding and support shown by our guests, members and staff alike. We thank you for your words and acts of kindness that have given much needed hope and positivity throughout these difficult weeks. Our main priority has always been our loyal customers, especially since temporarily closing the doors of our beautiful venues, putting your experience with us on hold.

If you have an existing booking with us, please don’t worry, we’ll be in touch to help as soon as possible.
If you have one of our gift cards with an expiry date before 30th June 2020, you do not need to do anything, we have automatically extended these until 31st December 2020.

We are also focusing on the wellbeing of our valuable team members, who are currently unable to work due to recent government restrictions. Our employees are a key focus for us at this time, as we hope you understand. Consequently, we are doing all we can to ensure a swift return and to reassure and stabilise their situation in the meantime.

For those of you who may still need to contact us, we have put in place a small dedicated team to respond to all enquiries. Please bear with us if our response isn’t as speedy as normal, we really are trying our best and will contact you as soon as we are able to.
