Sleep Easy


It can be challenging to wind down and get a good quality night’s sleep around exam time but taking steps to look after your physical and mental health, and ensuring you’re well rested, can have very positive effects on stress levels. Fuelling our bodies and minds with nutrient-rich antioxidant foods can protect each cell in our body from oxidative stress, and support immunity.

Including foods like spinach or rocket in your meals, nuts and nut butters on crackers, seeds on yogurts or cereals, will help to add more magnesium to our diet, which has many functions including helping to reduce tiredness and fatigue, and supporting our nervous system.

Exercise is also a great way to alleviate stress – you could try taking a break from studying to go for a run or cycle, or simply walk the dog. And good quality sleep has been shown to increase memory and strengthen the immune system so a good night’s sleep will stand to you at exam time.

You could try taking a supplement like Irish Botanica Seésta, a soothing blend of Ashwagandha, Chamomile*, Hops Flower, and Magnesium†. It is formulated to help maintain a healthy sleep and contains magnesium, which supports the nervous system, psychological function, and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

Irish Botanica Seésta is available from New Leaf Health Store.

*Chamomile helps to maintain a healthy sleep – EFSA Article 13.1, Claim ID 2088.

†Magnesium contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and to normal psychological function.
