Sleep is very important to our health, with a lack of sufficient sleep being responsible for increasing your risk of serious health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and more.
A lack of sleep can also cause depression, premature ageing of the skin and affect the memory.
Therefore it is important to know how to get a good night’s sleep, especially if you have been having problems in that area.
One piece of advice is to only use your bed and your bedroom for the purpose of sleeping, keeping it comfortable, dark and quiet at all times, as your mind associates light with being awake, and darkness with sleep.
Regular exercise can also increase your chances of getting a good night’s sleep, as it improves your sleep patterns via regulating hormone levels and metabolism. You should not try to go to sleep for at least three hours after exercise, however, as this gives the body a chance to cool down first.
