1. Watch Your Caffeine Intake - More Than You Think!
In the above YouTube clip Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology, Matthew Walker explains how Caffeine lingers in our system. Drinking a cup of coffee at Midday is the equivalent of drinking a quarter of a cup of coffee just as you're going to bed. It disrupts sleep quality, particularly deep restorative sleep.
2. Get Sunlight Morning And Afternoon
Research shows that our eyes register light quality, and can distinguish between morning and afternoon light. Going outside during these times, and getting this light on our eyes, enables them to inform our brains what time of day it is, and consequently keeps our circadian rhythms i.e wake/sleep cycle on track. Avoid bright artificial light between 10 pm and 4 am, if you have to get up during the night try having a low-level light to use, just bright enough for safety's sake.
3. Keep Your Room Cool and Dark
To achieve restful sleep our body temperature needs to drop 1-3 degree's. An increase in body temperature may wake us up. If your body temperature tends to run hot, it might be a good idea to replace the Doona with a top sheep and blankets so that you can remove or add a layer according to the temperature. Try to block out light as much as possible.
