Your partner’s sleep cycle
You may be an early riser, but your partner could be a night owl. This difference can end up ruining how much rest you actually get.

Your furry friend
If you have a dog or a cat as a pet, you might be sharing your bed with them. It’s common to see pets on the bed with their owners, as they give comfort and security. But they could also be affecting your sleep.

Not enough light
If you’re staying indoors the entire day, and have little to no exposure to light, it might affect your sleep. This is because your circadian rhythm goes out of whack when it doesn’t perceive light. The result is your internal biological clock not knowing when it’s time to sleep.

Working out before bedtime
Exercising regularly is important for your overall health. But it’s also important to make sure you do your workouts long before bedtime. If you exercise too close to bed, you may not be able to fall asleep.

Extreme room temperatures
An ideal room temperature is also important for a good night’s sleep. But more often than not, we ignore this. Our bedrooms are either too hot or too cold.

Non-relaxing activities on bed
The bed you sleep on should only be used for relaxing and cuddling with your partner. If you’re using it for activities that keep you up all the time, you won’t be getting a good sleep.

No sleep schedule
One of the biggest issues is not having a proper sleep schedule. It’s too bad that most people don’t have a set time to go to sleep and wake up. This wreaks havoc on their body’s sleep cycle. This is especially true when it comes to changes in schedule from weekdays to weekends.

Are you looking for a few tips to help you sleep better? Let’s see if we can save you from tossing and turning the entire night.
You need to stick to a sleep schedule. Go to bed at the same time everyday. Limit the difference in your sleep schedule on weeknights and weekends to no more than one hour. Being consistent reinforces your body's sleep-wake cycle.
