Do you struggle with poor sleep quality? If you are among those who find it difficult to fall asleep or wake up too early, then you might be looking for ways to improve your sleep. Fortunately, there are simple tips that can help you get the sleep you need. Experts suggest that we make use of positive sleep hygiene to improve our sleep and combat insomnia. This includes keeping a consistent sleep schedule, limiting exposure to light and sound, keeping the bedroom for sleep and sex only, and avoiding daytime napping. Additionally, it’s essential to limit alcohol and drug use, as well as caffeine consumption. On average, adults need 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night, and naps can interfere with sleep at night. Furthermore, sleep is divided into two major phases, NREM and REM, both of which are important for rest, repair, and processing emotions and memory. If you are feeling excessively tired during the day, it could be a sign of insufficient sleep quantity or quality, which can have a clear impact on your ability to function. So, start practicing positive sleep hygiene, and you’ll be able to get the sleep you need for a better, healthier life.
