Sleep Hygiene and Your Health
With the added stress of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to get quality sleep. One can promote restful, healthy sleep by following the sleep hygiene recommendations below:
Make sure that your sleep period is 7-9 hours daily without disruptions.
Try to sleep at the same time every day.
Avoid drinks with caffeine prior to bedtime to improve sleep quality.
If working evening or nights, make sure that sleep has occurred within the last 8 hours before going to work.
If napping before work, make sure that the duration is less than 45 minutes or greater than 2 hours to allow for a complete sleep/wake cycle.
Make sure that the sleeping environment is comfortable, cool, dark and quiet.
Exercise regularly. Eat a balanced diet. Maintain a healthy weight.
If you have difficulty sleeping, keep a sleep diary and talk to your doctor.
