Sleep takes up a third of our life and it has a tremendous impact on how we live, function, and perform during the other two-thirds of our lives.
Sleep is indeed as vital as the air we breathe and the food we eat.
Understanding sleep hygiene and getting a good routine set up for yourself will help you getter better and more refreshing sleep.
Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends, and make sure you are getting seven to nine hours of sleep each night. Inconsistent sleep schedules or poor sleep can lead to:
Keep in mind that if you are sleeping too much regularly (more than 10 hours a night), this can be a sign of depression.
Your bedroom should be your sanctuary.
Sleep at a cool temperature (approximately 65 degrees Fahrenheit), block out light with heavy curtains or eyeshades, and drown out noise with a white noise machine or earplugs.
You should also make sure your bedroom is de-cluttered and clean. You can even try calming candles or aromatherapy scents such as lavender or chamomile.
Your sleeping surface is critical to your mental and physical health. A poorly designed or old mattress and pillow can result in interrupted sleep, back pain, and neck pain.
The use of artificial lighting and electronics at night may contribute to sleep problems.
Electronic devices such as computers, smartphones, tablets, and televisions emit light of a blue wavelength, which may trick your brain into thinking it is daytime. This, in turn, can disrupt your circadian rhythm.
Avoid all electronics for 30 minutes to one hour before bed.
On some nights, it can de difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep. You may toss and turn, stare at the clock, count sheep, and become frustrated.
If you try falling asleep but find yourself tossing and turning for 20 minutes or more, get out of bed and do something relaxing such as reading a book, journaling, listening to music, or meditating. Then return to bed and try again.
Whether this is taking a warm bath before bed, meditating, or reading, create a wind-down routine that relaxes your body and mind before you get into bed.
The goal is to crawl into bed when you are relaxed and tired, not stressed out and wide awake.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
