2 – Bad sleep routine
In order to consistently get a good quality sleep, the most common practice is to have a bedtime routine. As often as possible, go to bed at the same time and also get up at the same time. You can experiment to create a routine with rituals that suit you. You could, for instance, have a period of relaxation before going to bed, such as reading before falling asleep. You could also try a few techniques of yoga or meditation. The best routine is the one that suits you and that gives great results!
3 – Technology in the bedroom
Avoid bringing your electronic devices (phone or tablet) in the bedroom and avoid installing a TV set in your cozy nest. You might be inclined to think that the TV helps you fall asleep more quickly, but what you’re doing is encouraging long-term bad sleep habits.
4 – Bad life hygiene
If your bedroom is full of dust, you may have difficulty breathing and getting good quality sleep. In addition, if your room is not welcoming, you will not like to spend time there to relax and restore your energy. Clean your room and make sure you are comfortable in your living space. You will notice a big difference. And why not add a fresh touch to your environment with beautiful flowers on the bedside table? Spoil yourself, you deserve it!
5 – Lack of comfort
After health, comfort is the most important element for a good night sleep. If you are sleeping for years on a mattress that needs to be changed, that is not suitable for your sleeping position or a mattress that you simply don’t like, you will be surprised of how much the quality of your sleep will increase after changing it. The same goes for the pillow: it must be of high quality and have the right comfort level to make your nights dreamy.
