Sleep Hygiene
Good “hygiene” is anything that helps you to have a healthy life. Sleep hygiene helps you stay healthy by keeping your mind and body rested and strong. Following these tips will help you sleep better and feel your best.

  • Avoid napping during the day: If you just can’t make it through the day without a nap, sleep less than one hour, before 3 pm.
  • Avoid caffeine, nicotine and alcohol before bedtime
  • Stay away from large meals close to bedtime
  • Avoid any tough exercise within six hours of your bedtime.
  • Establish a relaxing bedtime routine: It is important to give your body cues that it is time to slow down and sleep. Listen to relaxing music, read something soothing for 15 minutes, have a cup of caffeine free tea, do relaxation exercises.
  • Do not use your bed to watch TV, listen to the radio, or read. Associate your bed with sleep.
  • Do not have a beer, a glass of wine, or any other alcohol within six hours of your bedtime.
  • Make your bedroom quiet, dark, and a little bit cool.
  • Sleep when you are sleepy: If you can’t fall asleep within 20 minutes, get up and do something boring until you feel sleepy.
