- To sleep better: make the bedroom pitch black... - Deepstash

   - To sleep better: make the bedroom pitch black and cool, avoid alcohol and food before bed, reduce evening exposure to blue light from screens, exercise earlier in the day, establish a consistent wake-up time, use relaxation techniques.

   - Addressing sleep issues through changes to sleep hygiene, bedroom conditions, and behavior can improve sleep more than sleeping pills in many cases. Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia is highly effective.

   - Prioritizing sleep is as important as diet, exercise and other lifestyle factors. Good sleep enhances overall health and functioning.
