Making a new year’s resolution is easy but keeping them is what matters. This year make a resolution to improve your sleeping habits by following these simple yet effective steps:
The first and foremost step is to turn off the screens an hour before sleeping. The reason is simple, the light emitted from the televisions tablets, smartphones and computers. We know you like catching up on the next episode of your favourite series or show in your free time. Instead of listening to soothing music or reading a book is suggested.
Another important factor that should be considered and often a few people pay any heed to it is making sure your surroundings are comfortable along with an ideal mattress. Believe it or not, a mattress has a huge part to play. You have to make sure it’s the right one for you.
It is also important to reduce caffeine consumption. Consuming a lot of coffee can take away your beauty sleep. It can keep you awake when you need your sleep, gearing up for the next day.

We hope this new year, you are able to achieve everything and even getting a restorative sleep that we all deserve.
