In Britain the average adult sleeps just six hours each night and this is simply not enough, it is so important to ensure we are all getting a good night’s sleep.

Sleep benefits us on every level and taking steps to getting a good night’s sleep can transform your whole sense of wellbeing. Our bodies ideally need eight good hours of quality rest for the recuperation required on a daily basis. When we sleep, our brains can process information and consolidate learning, our hormones can regulate, our cells can mend, our moods and emotions can settle.

Insufficient sleep is like pressing fast-forward on ageing and stress, and can exacerbate other issues. But the damage is, thankfully, reversible.

Our resident nutritionist and wellness expert Rhaya Jordan is hosting a series of Wellness Workshops at Daylesford throughout the year, teaching practical sleep hygiene techniques to create an optimum environment for quality rest.

Over servings of our dreamtime tea and turmeric golden milk, you will learn how to re-establish natural rhythms to ensure you wake up feeling refreshed and energised each morning. You will make your own aromatherapy sleep pillows to aid restful, recuperative sleep in the long term.
