Healthy Living Tips - Improve The Quality of Your Sleep

If you have a tough time falling asleep or enjoying a restful slumber, researchers have identified “sleep hygiene” habits that can make it easier for you to enjoy a good night’s sleep.

  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and other sleep-sabotaging chemicals before bed.
     
  • Remove televisions, computers, and bright screens from the bedroom.
     
  • Make your bedroom a comfortable place to sleep by adding heavy curtains or eye masks and reducing noise through earplugs or a white noise machine.
     
  • Keep pets out of the room if they wake you up.
     
  • Ease the transition to sleep time with a relaxing pre-sleep routine like taking a warm bath, reading a book, or meditation. [1]
