Better Sleep Month

The aim of Better Sleep Month is to encourage people to establish better sleeping patterns. Sleep is crucial to our physical, emotional and mental health.

Gender can also play a role in sleep disturbance. Michael Breus, Ph.D believes that women are generally more sleep deprived than men.

Many experts believe that between 7 1/2 and 8 1/2 hours of sleep a night is optimal. However, better sleep does not refer to just the length of time we sleep.

Better sleep is quality sleep.

Six (6) hours of deep refreshing sleep is more beneficial than 8 hours of light interrupted sleep.

Tips To Get Better Sleep:

  • establish a consistent sleep schedule by sleeping at the same time each day of the week (including weekends).
  • relax before sleeping. Prior to sleep, limit any stimulating activities such as exercise and work. Perform activities that you may find relaxing such as reading.
  • create an optimal sleeping environment. Your place of sleep should be dark, ventilated and of an appropriate temperature. Black out blinds can help seal out light in area. If possible, remove any distractions such as computers and TVs from the room. Ensure your bedding is of adequate quality and there is enough space in the bed if you share the bed with a partner (or a pet!).
  • a healthy lifestyle consisting of exercise and a healthy diet can contribute towards better sleep. Avoid alcohol, nicotine and caffeine close to bed time. Whilst alcohol may help some people to relax, it can disrupt sleep throughout the night.
