Tips for A Quality Sleep

Tips for A Quality Sleep

What are your bedtime habits and rituals? Are they hygienic? Yes, there is something known as sleep hygiene. If you want to improve your sleep quality, you should improve your sleep hygiene. Good sleep hygiene ensures that you enjoy a higher quality of sleep while bad sleep hygiene guarantees the opposite. The elements of good sleep hygiene are:

  • Friendly room temperature. It should not be too hot or too cold
  • A dark room
  • A comfortable place to lie down
  • Absence of noise

You also need to cultivate a sleep appropriate culture. This means making some adjustments in your sleep patterns. Measure the amount of sleep that you get. Humans need 8 hours of sleep. If you find you require fewer hours, try to stay in the realm of six hours. Do not deprive yourself of this because sleep will always come to collect.

You should ensure that you develop a sleep schedule - waking up and going to bed the same time everyday. Using an alarm clock and a sleep tracker to help know your sleep schedule and habits, is a good, proactive idea.

Here are some additional tips to help get a better night’s rest:

  • Take a warm bath before bed
  • Some light reading in gentle light
  • Some calm relaxing music
  • Turning off the TV
  • Deep breathing
  • Aromatherapy
  • Deep breathing
  • Medication

Bottom line – Sleep is a very important component to your overall health. Take it extremely seriously and work on improving your sleep hygiene
