The Queen’s sleep routine revealed
New research reveals that the Queen has the most Googled royal sleep routine – beating Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.
According to Bed Kingdom, The Queen, who is famous for the longevity and consistency of her reign, may owe her long life to her active lifestyle and sleep hygiene.
They say that, the Queen sleeps 8.5 hours a night, which is well within the healthy sleep range of an adult in the UK, who should be getting 8-9 hours a night.
To sleep as well as The Queen, you should go to bed at the same time every night (Her Majesty retires at 11pm), which will train your body to feel automatically sleepy as you approach your designated bedtime, ensuring a better night’s rest.
The Queen and her late husband Prince Philip also used to sleep in different bedrooms to each get a better night’s sleep.
Eating light, protein-filled and regular meals like The Queen is also a good enhancer of sleep. The Queen is partial to fish and vegetables and reportedly a light breakfast of Special K with fruit, which will give her slow-burn energy and keep her fresh throughout a busy royal schedule, saving sleepiness for bedtime.
The Queen also takes light, daily exercise in the form of walking – a useful method of releasing endorphins, which can lead to a more relaxing night’s sleep.
