Here are some tips to get a Good Sleep:


1. Keep a regular sleep routine

You can help sleep along by going to bed and waking up at the same time each day, as well as by sticking to your pre-bed routine so that your body knows that sleep is coming.


2. Prepare a sleep-friendly environment

Cool, dark, and quiet are essential. Turn out the lights or use light-blocking curtains or shades. If you live in a noisy environment, white noise machines or ear plugs may block out some of the sounds.


3. Get comfortable

Your mattress and pillow could contribute a good sleep. Choose the bed that feels most comfortable to you. An old bed could cause you a bad sleep.


4. Pay attention to what you eat and drink

Don’t go to bed either hungry or stuffed. Your discomfort might keep you up. Also limit how much you drink before bed to prevent disruptive middle-of-the-night trips to the toilet.


5. Don't exercise right before bed

Regular exercise can help you sleep more soundly, but for some people, it can be disruptive if it's done right before going to bed.


6. Skip the pre-bed cocktail

Alcohol may make you drowsy, but it can disturb your sleep later as the alcohol wears off.


7. Create a Tech-Free Zone

Cell phones, computers, and tablets can all disrupt sleep because their ever-glowing lights—especially those in the blue wavelengths—can throw off your circadian rhythm by mimicking daylight.
