  • Alcohol and caffeine have a negative effect on sleep quality, try to avoid those a few hours before bedtime. 
  • Don’t use devices that radiate a lot of light, such as televisions, phones or computers. Instead read a book or go for a relaxed walk. 
  • Stay active during the day to ensure your body and mind want to recharge at the end of the day.

Optimize your bedroom

Besides changing your routine you can also optimize the conditions in your bedroom for a good night sleep. 

  • Your body needs to cool down when you’re asleep, a cool room helps this process. The most ideal room temperature is around 18 degrees Celsius. Try to cool your room before you go to sleep.
  • Keep noise out. Choose the most silent room in the house or try to isolate your bedroom for noises. Remove ticking clocks and if necessary use earplugs.
  • Darken your room. We sleep better in darkness and this improves sleep quality significantly. The perfect solution for a dark bedroom is using blackout window coverings.
