Stick to a schedule
With little routine, it’s easy to stay up watching TV or lie in until late morning, however, this directly impacts our mental health and lessens the quality of sleep we are getting. It’s best to pick a bedtime and wake-up time, and try to stick to them as much as possible.
Avoid caffeine and alcohol
It goes without saying caffeine and alcohol are both stimulants and will sabotage your sleep quality. Avoid drinking caffeine 4 hours before bedtime and limit your alcohol intake - it can become a crutch during stressful periods.
