Regular exercise

Consistency

  • Try to establish a regular sleep pattern. Your body and brain like consistency. Your natural clock gets thrown off with too much variation in the time you go to bed and the amount of sleep you get.

Cool down the bedroom

  • The ideal range of room temperature is between 54° and 74° F. The optimum temperature is 66° F. 

Ideal sleeping temptature is around 68 degrees

Shut of all electronics

  • TV’s, cellphones and other devices emit light and sound which can stimulate your brain. As well, with a cell phone or computer you might be inclined to check your email or text messages as they come in.

For a better nights sleep, turn off electronic devices

Unwind

  • Some people find that taking a warm bath before they go to sleep can relax them. Reading a book can slow your brain down and turn your thoughts to topics that are not stressful (taking a bath also will keep your bedding cleaner).
