Good sleep habits (sometimes referred to as “sleep hygiene”) can help you get a good night’s sleep.
Some habits that can improve your sleep health:
- Be consistent. Go to bed at the same time each night and get up at the same time each morning, including on the weekends
- Make sure your bedroom is quiet, dark, relaxing, and at a comfortable temperature
- Remove electronic devices, such as TVs, computers, and smartphones, from the bedroom
- Avoid large meals, caffeine, and alcohol before bedtime
- Get some exercise. Being physically active during the day can help you fall asleep more easily at night.
- Use night shift or night mode on your phone 1-2 hours before bed.
Along with a balanced diet and regular exercise, sleep is one of the pillars of a healthy lifestyle and a healthy heart. Getting the sleep that your body needs is essential for your health and well-being. To get good sleep, you need a good bedtime.
