TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR SLEEP

FIXED BEDTIMES 

When you get up and go to bed at the same time each day, you will teach your internal alarm clock to optimize the time you sleep. The quality of your sleep will improve and you will not be in the deep sleep phase when you need to get up. It will make you less tired in the morning and during the day.

MAKE SURE IT IS DARK

Melatonin is a natural sleep hormone controlled by the amount of light you are exposed to. Melatonin makes you tired. Your brain release more melatonin when it's dark and less when it's light.

KEEP A COOL BEDROOM 

Most people sleep best in a cool room with a temperature of around 18 ° C. A bedroom that is too hot can decrease your quality of sleep.

AVOID COFFEE AND ALCOHOL

Caffeine can cause sleep problems for up to 12 hours after ingestion. Alcohol can reduce your sleep quality by making you more restless and giving you more intense dreams.

THE BED IS FOR SLEEPING

You should avoid working, watching TV and using your computer in bed. If you reserve the bed for sleep and sex, your brain will get used to getting tired when you lie down, making it easier to fall asleep. Get out of the bed if you haven't fallen asleep after 20 minutes.
