How important is a good night's sleep?

According to PubMed (PMID 34607184), recent meta analysis shows that interventions which improve sleep quality also improve mental health.

If you're not getting the amount of sleep that you need per night, here's a few sleep hygiene tips that might help improve that!

*Try to nap only before 2:00 pm and keep it to 20 minutes

*Stop eating 2-3 hours before you go to bed

*Wind down mentally 1-2 hours before bed and put away all electronics to remove blue light

*Keep your bedroom cool

*Use breathable sheets and blankets

*Make your bedroom an electronic-free zone. If you must have your phone in your bedroom, keep it at least 10 feet away from your bed.

*Make your bedroom pitch black to help with melatonin production

*Wake up with the sun, if possible.

*Use white noise, if needed
