#2: Make your bedroom a relaxing space
Next, it’s time to turn your bedroom into a sleeping oasis. This room should be reserved for rest only – that means no working, eating or watching television in bed. Keep the temperature cool (around 18°C) using a fan or air conditioner. It should also be dark and quiet, so you might want to try blackout curtains, eye masks and ear plugs.
#3: Wind down at least an hour before bedtime
To prepare your body for sleep, you must switch off all electronic devices – think mobile phones and tablets – and turn down the lights at least an hour before nodding off. You should also be mindful of your activities before bedtime. For example, you won’t fall asleep straight after watching an intense action movie as your brain will be too alert.
By following these sleep tips, you’ll also improve your emotional and physical health. Sweet dreams!
