Here are 5 tips to help you sleep better ⬇️
🔹 Be consistent. Go to bed at the same time each night and get up at the same time each morning, including on the weekends.
🔹 If possible, make your sleeping area quiet, dark, relaxing and at a comfortable temperature.
🔹 Limit your use of electronic devices, such as TVs, computers and smart phones, before sleeping.
🔹 Avoid large meals, caffeine and alcohol before bedtime.
