Does the above picture of someone lying awake at night watching the hours tick by ring true to you? Read the sleep hygiene tips below to help improve your sleep.
Having great sleep hygiene involves creating habits that are necessary for getting a good nights sleep. Sleep hygiene is important for everyone and can prevent sleeping disorders. Even some small adjustments can be the difference between a good night sleep and a restless sleep. To have great sleep hygiene create the following habits:
- Avoid caffeine close to bedtime
- Avoid computer and cell phone use a couple of hours before bed. The blue/white light they omit disrupts your body’s circadian rhythm making sleep more difficult
- Get regular exercise
- Do something relaxing before bed
- Do not bring problems to bed or go to bed straight after an argument.
