A good night’s sleep isn’t only good for our model looks, it’s also essential to staying healthy – but what can you do to avoid tossing and turning?
When we’re not walking up and down the catwalk or posing for photographs, the chances are we are sleeping. Considering we spend about 21 years of our life sleeping, burning the candle at both ends sounds an exciting alternative if there aren’t enough hours in the day, but a word of warning – sleep’s not only good for our looks, it’s also positively essential for our physical and mental health all of which are essential if you wish to succeed at modelling.
So what should you do if you’re going through a period of bad sleep? Well before rushing off to the doctor for sleeping pills, check out the Models Direct tips to getting a good night sleep.
- Avoid the Supermodel diet of coffee, alcohol or nicotine, especially for three hours before turning in.
- DO follow granny’s advice and have a warm milky drink. Granny must have known that dairy products contain tryptophan – a natural sleep inducer.
- Exercise is good to help maintain that model body but exercise strenuously late at night giving you that buzz will keep you awake.
- DO try some simple relaxation exercises – Lie on the floor or the bed and slowly work through your limbs and body, from your feet up to the top of your scalp, by stretching or clenching the muscles then relaxing them.
- DON’T allow yourself to nod off during the evening.
- Jump in the models favourite place, a hot bath, before you go to bed. As your body temperature drops afterwards, so you’ll begin to feel sleepier.
- Make your bedroom a room you want to relax in – pale walls and bed linen – blue is a good colour for relaxation.
- Make the room as dark as possible when the curtains are drawn and the lights switched off.
- Don’t eat a heavy meal three to four hours before going to bed.
- Do have a light carbohydrate snack – try a banana and a piece of toast – banana being another food rich in tryptophan.

Catalogues such as The Next Directory, Freemans, Kays and Look Again use many models from new born babies, children, teens, male and female models selling everyday products to consumers. Models Direct represent catalogue models and have provided models to well known clothing companies for many years.
Catalogue modelling can provide regular work because of the change in seasons each year which launches new clothing and trends. Pay is usually generous within this sector because of the vast number of images that are taken to display the ranges of clothes stocked by the company. These pictures are displayed in both print and online catalogues.
