How to relax and let go of your busy day

We all sometimes suffer from periods of poor sleep - it’s something we all relate to. When we’ve had a bad night’s sleep it’s difficult to concentrate well and our work performance is sub-optimal. Practising stress-reducing techniques and improving our ‘sleep hygiene’ is good for our physical health and for our wellbeing at work. There are simple steps we can take to enable us to sleep well and to resume sleep if we wake in the night.
