If you want to improve sleep and energy, the number 1 priority should be to aim to go to bed and wake up at the same time each day. 

 

People generally have a hard time adjusting to changes in sleep patterns because the body’s biological clock is working against them. Unfortunately, sleeping late on weekends doesn’t make up for poor sleep during the week. If necessary, set an alarm for bedtime to ensure you give yourself the opportunity for a good 8 hours of sleep at least. 

 

To help with this, it’s important to have time before bed to unwind. Try to schedule your days so that there is time to relax before bed. Reading a paper back book under dim lighting is one thing that often helps, as does slow breathing. Doing this at a similar time each night trains your brain to know it’s time to unwind, ready for a refreshing night’s sleep.
