Festival Season

Festival season is almost upon us and having a good time is going to be a priority – but getting a good night’s sleep can make these events even better!

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed or even grouchy in loud/busy environments, and poor sleep can make this a lot worse. But being prepared can reduce the impact and ensure maximum fun. Wherever you’re off to this year, we have created a list to help you be prepared to get a great night’s rest.

Camping Space: Try to choose a camping space that’s a good distance from the main events area – this will reduce noise and possibly be a quieter spot from other revellers

Senses: Take earplugs and an eye mask to keep noise and light at bay

Comfort: Make your sleep space comfortable – take your pillow from home for extra comfort

Sleep Environment: Keep your sleep environment tidy

Diet: Avoid sugary foods/drinks during the day

Hydration: Drink plenty of water to keep hydrated

Drink Responsibly: Avoid too much alcohol/caffeine on the run up to bed

Exercise: Festivals are great for encouraging walking – get your steps in to tire you out

Prepare: Try to get some extra sleep before a weekend of partying, it may help your body be slightly more resilient to any sleep deprivation

Most importantly, we hope you have a great time!
