Stylist’s Emerald Street Editor changed her sleeping habits over two weeks in a bid to reduce stress…
And, yet, some of us are still struggling to reach the land of nod with ease in 2019 – and it could be down to leading stressful lives. According to a recent study by the Mental Health Foundation, millennials are reporting higher levels of stress than their baby boomer colleagues. In fact, we’re feeling so stressed out that the World Health Organization is calling stress the health epidemic of the 21st century.
Which is why Stylist’s Emerald Street Editor Kat Poole – a self-proclaimed sleep (and stress) sufferer – decided to change her bedtime routine for two weeks in a bid to feel less stressed. From eating breakfast within 30 minutes of rising to reducing her caffeine intake and getting into bed before 10pm, Poole has tried and tested some of the best expert advice out there.
Watch our video above to find out how Poole faired in making small changes to her routine to see some big changes.
