Boosting the quality of your sleep
Routine and good habits are key to boosting the quality of our sleep – and to that end consistency can be really beneficial.
In terms of that routine, going to bed and waking up at the same time each day (even at weekends) helps regulate the internal body clock. When it comes to habits, creating a comfortable sleeping environment – free from distractions like mobile phones and excessive noise can enhance the quality of our sleep.
Also often underestimated is the impact of light. A dark and cool environment is great for sleep – but perhaps not so great for waking up. This can be countered with the introduction of light-based alarm clocks, which slowly brighten as you begin to approach your waking time.
