Sleep Hygiene Tips

With the holidays season in full swing it's more important than ever to focus on great sleep hygiene. Here our 9 tips:

  1. Avoid caffeinated foods and beverages 4-6 hour prior to sleep

  2. Avoid alcohol before nighttime as it negatively impacts sleep quality

  3. Keep your bed a space for sleep activity only (don't check emails or do work in bed!)

  4. Turn off all electronic devices/screens at least 30 min prior

  5. Find a comfortable temperature between 65 and 72 degrees is optimal for most

  6. Slowly dim the lighting to start winding down the closer you get to wanting to go to sleep

  7. Take a warm bath or shower to relax


8. Don't go to bed hungry but also don't each too much

9. Prayer or meditation can help- consider a sleep meditation as a way to wind down
