Tip 4: Additional Tips for a Good Night’s Sleep  

The following sleep tips can be added regularly to your sleep routine and help improve the length and quality of your sleep.

  1. Regular Exercise:
    Research shows that regular exercise improves sleep quality. Relaxing exercises like yoga and tai chi are great ways to settle yourself in for bed.
  2. Dim the Electronics:
    Light from your phone, tablet, computer, or TV can trick your brain into thinking it’s still daytime. You can minimize these effects by using a smaller screen or by turning down the brightness on your devices.
  3. Set a Sleep Schedule:
    Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. You should also avoid taking long naps during the day.
  4. Diet Matters:
    Finish dinner several hours before bedtime. You should also avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol before bedtime.
