Infographic: Good Sleep Hygiene

sleep hygiene

A lot of people have difficulty getting to sleep due to a lack of good sleep hygiene. Good sleep hygiene is defined as sleeping habits that are conducive to getting rest at night. Sleeping hygiene starts with creating a relaxing place to rest. The bedroom should be neat, clean, and organized with a comfortable bed that suits you. The bed and the bedroom should not be used for any other purpose than sleep, so there should be no eating, watching television, or reading in bed. It is best to exercise early in the morning and stop those types of activities after the evening has started.

A hot bath or shower will often help you feel more relaxed and get you ready for sleep. Setting a sleep schedule in terms of when you wake up and go to sleep is also very helpful because it trains your body and sets up the expectation to sleep at a certain time each night. Eating in the evening or near the bed time is not recommended because digestion can often prevent the body from sleeping. Substances like alcohol, caffeine, or nicotine can impede sleep and it is suggested that you remove them from your diet or at the very least restrict their intake during the evening.
