within 30 minutes of going to bed. How often you wake up. Frequent wakefulness can reduce your sleep quality by disrupting your sleep cycle, which is typically made of four to six stages encompassing rapid-eye-movement (REM) is when

Easy tips to improve sleep quality Good thing there are plenty of easy ways for mere mortals like us to improve our sleep quality. Keep the bedroom clean, dark, quiet and cool

Step 1: Declutter the bedroom so you have a clear mind as you drift off to dreamland.

TVs, smartphones and laptops are too stimulating to promote good sleep quality. If you’re using your phone as an alarm or for white noise make sure notifications and/or your ringer are turned off, and that the screen isn’t visible. Get active exercising improves because it reduces the time it takes to fall asleep and the amount of time you lie awake in bed.

Can the caffeine

Tea, coffee and cola, which contain caffeine, can wreck your sleep patterns, so switch to decaffeinated or caffeine-free drinks in the afternoon and evening. Sleep teas like chamomile or peppermint, meanwhile, can help you fall asleep more quickly.
