“Our sleep schedule depends on a lot of factors;-
Most importantly, we should ideally follow the same bedtime routine each day, to go to bed around 10-10.30pm and to wake 7 to 8 hours later. If that routine is followed for some time, our body adjusts and gets used to this rhythm and a better quality of sleep is established.
It is also important to not eat within the 3 hours before bedtime in order to allow the body to use all of its energy in repairing the body. If we do eat during this time, half of the energy will be diverted into the digestive system and body reparation will not be optimised.
To aid better sleep, light exercise should be taken early evening and not after 7pm.
Lastly, when you enter the bedroom to sleep, try to leave all problems and stress behind the bedroom doors.” Dr Mirella
