Many of us struggle with getting a good night's sleep on a regular basis. This can be a common concern that I hear from my clients, especially since sleep deprivation can have a negative impact on our overall physical and emotional well-being.
The good news is that there are things we can do to help improve our ability to get a good night's sleep. These habits are known as "sleep hygiene." What follows is a list of the techniques and habits recommended by sleep experts, and that I have also found to be helpful for my clients.
There are a lot of ideas here - I wanted this blog post to be a somewhat comprehensive deep dive, rather than a "best of" list. This is because what works for some people may not work for others. It can, however, be somewhat overwhelming, so I recommend choosing a few to get started with, and add on from there if sleep remains elusive.
