Here are our best tips to get you started!

1. Go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day

Even on weekends! Regularity is key for sleep quality

2. Keep your bedroom cool

Ideal temperature is around 18°C (65°F)

3. Maintain a relaxing bedtime ritual

Avoid activities that can cause excitement, stress or anxiety like social media, Netflix or video games.

4. Get out of bed if you can’t fall asleep

This will strengthen your unconscious association between bed and sleep

5. Avoid screens at night

Screens emit blue light which may prevent your body from falling asleep. Try at least to install a blue light filter on your phone or computer

 

To a great 2019!
