Sleep is important. We can’t live without sleep. And, sadly, most of us don’t get enough sleep.
This affects everything from our mood to our ability to concentrate to our driving.
If you have trouble getting enough sleep, consider trying some of these sleep strategies:
- Keep a consistent bedtime and wakeup time – even on the weekends
- Avoid electronics for at least one hour before sleeping
- Don’t eat or drink alcohol right before you go to sleep
- Create a relaxing bedtime routine
Practice relaxation techniques if you have trouble turning off your mind at night
