  1. Drink at least 8 glasses of water

Drinking lots of water releases the toxic elements from the body. This, in turn, helps you to sleep better. Drink plenty of water during the day and especially in the afternoons. Avoid drinking too much water in the evenings as this will disturb your sleep thanks to frequent visits to the loo.

  1. Eat your meals early in the evening

Try not to eat late in the evenings. Also avoid heavy foods like fried, sugary and calorific stuff. You must eat at least 2 hours before you go to sleep.

  1. Sleep in an electronic free environment

It is necessary to stay away from electronic gadgets to sleep better. Do not carry your mobile phone into your bedroom. If you need an alarm for waking up in the morning, get a digital alarm clock. Do not set alarm on your mobile or laptop/computers.

  1. Remove all makeup

Sleeping with makeup damages your skin. Remove all the makeup with a make up remover. Use a mild makeup remover only. Try and use one that also moisturises. This will keep the skin from drying out at night.

  1. Set a sleep routine

It could be anything like reading a book, bath, massaging you feet, or writing a daily journal. Doing one particular activity every night is proven to help you sleep better. Try and avoid watching television or other stimulating activity that will alert your mind. That will make falling asleep more difficult.

  1. Apply moisturiser

Your skin restores itself at night. So keep your face well hydrated to give your skin the extra boost so it can look shiny and glowing in the mornings. Apply a moisturizer that suits you best. It may take a while and some experimenting to zero on the one that suits you best.

  1. Decide on a place and use it only for sleeping

It is important for our brain to associate with a place of sleeping. You must reserve a place exclusively for sleep. Avoid other activities on the bed such as chatting with friends, playing games, etc.

  1. Stay away from alcohol

Alcohol is a deterrent to sound sleep. Although it may seem to aid sleep it reduces the deep sleep that begins about 90 minutes after the initial sleep. Alcohol also causes you to wake up after sometime. Falling asleep after this break is very difficult.

  1. Maintain a suitable temperature in the room

It is observed that we sleep better in climate controlled rooms. Try to keep the  room at optimum temperature to fall asleep and stay asleep for 7-8 hours Also, use clean sheets and wear light comfortable sleepwear.

  1. Exercise

Regular exercise helps sleep well. It is quite surprising but morning exercise is a proven cure for lack of sleep at night. Exercise increases metabolism and helps digest food better-in turn, this helps you fall asleep.

  1. Sleep for 7-8 hours

An adult needs at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Set a sleep and wake schedule that helps to attain these minimum hours of sleep. ‘Early to bed, early to rise, keeps you healthy, wealthy and wise’ this proverb is very true indeed. Research indicates the best time for a sound sleep is between 10pm to 7am.

  1. Breathing techniques

Sleep on your back and deep breathe. Following your own breathing pattern and concentrating on improving it also helps fall asleep. Do not think of anything else like office work, disagreements, etc. Try and think happy thoughts. Even read a joke or anecdote before you sleep.
