Introducing The Daily Drop-in: Our daily pick of the best tools and articles to help you care for yourself during lockdown.
How has your sleep been during lockdown? If you’ve been struggling to get the kind of sleep that leaves you feeling rested in the morning, it could be worth turning to your kitchen for some help.
Here are 3 foods that may help you sleep better tonight.
Chamomile tea contains a substance (called apignen) that can bind to receptors in your brain and make you feel sleepy. Brew a cup an hour before bedtime.
Turkey contains an amino acid (tryptophan) that increases the production of the sleep hormone melatonin. Try eating a couple of slices before going to bed.
Drinking a glass of warm milk at bedtime may help you fall asleep because it contains melatonin and tryptophan -- 2 substances that can promote good sleep.

If you’ve got extra time on your hands, it may be worth learning something you don’t usually have time for - or never thought you could master.
Why not try coding? Or take a course on body language? You could also learn to write, market yourself on social media or get help developing a career plan.
