Check out our Sleep Tips to help you improve the quality of your sleep, which can help to improve your health, mood and productivity.
Get your exercise
30 minutes of exercise is ideal for good healthy sleep. However, vigorous exercise too close to bedtime can disrupt falling into sleep.
Stay away from caffeine and nicotine before bedtime
Avoiding sources of caffeine and nicotine at least 6 hours prior to sleeping is recommended.
Create a Sleep Sanctuary
Make your bedroom all about good sleep. Keep your bedroom cool, comfortable and stress free environment.
Buy a good mattress
People often wait too long to replace their worn out mattress. Proper support and pressure relief are paramount to proper sleep.
Don’t have a large meal close to bedtime
While eating healthy foods and appropriate portions is great for overall health, avoiding large meals within 5 hours of bedtime can improve the quality of your sleep.
Stick to a sleep schedule
Try to go to sleep at the same time every night. Similarly, try to wake up at the same time every morning. Going to sleep and getting up at the same time every morning allows your body to get into a good rhythm.
Skip the nap later in the day
Try to avoid taking naps from the afternoon on. This can make it more difficult to fall asleep at night.
Relax before bed
Take time to wind down from the day before you lay down for the night. Read a book or listen to music quietly in your bedroom Sanctuary.
