Sleep: Try these teas before bed if you struggle to fall asleep

For some, falling asleep can be really difficult. Certain teas can help induce sleepiness, allowing you to rest. Why not try these teas that are less than £5.

We all know good sleeping habits allow for better sleep, improving your mood and productivity. A good nighttime routine is to turn off screens at least 30 minutes before bed (it has been proven that blue light can affect our circadian rhythm), use noise-cancelling headphones, an eye mask, a weighted blanket and a hot cup of tea. This nighttime routine is sure to help you get that oh so important sleep. If you don’t know which teas to get, why not try out one of the five here?
