Avoid any stimulating activities a few hours before you go to sleep like eating or doing exercise, or watching a movie. Indeed, these activities will fill your body with energy and prevent you from falling asleep easily. It’s the same for alcohol, nicotine, and caffeine. Note that caffeine stays in your body for an average of 3 to 5 hours. Stop using your phone, tablet, etc. The light they emit inhibits your body’s preparation for sleep. All these activities will interfere with the quality of your sleep as well as your deep sleep, which is essential to restoring your energy, strengthening your immune system, and regenerating your tissues, bones, and cells.
Instead, create your own bedtime routine. This can be any relaxing activity like reading a book, listening to music, taking a shower, or a bath. This moment is very important as it indicates the transition from your maybe stressful day to a good night’s sleep.
If you have revisions or homework to finish, prefer waking up early than staying up late during the night. You will notice to be much more productive early in the morning.
