Home / Improving sleep quality

It is common for people to have poor quality sleep. Poor sleep can increase pain levels, stress, depression and anxiety. It can also affect your physical and mental abilities.
Eliminate barriers to sleep.

  • There are concrete steps you can take to improve sleep. Think hard and honestly about what interferes with your sleep and work to eliminate them.
  • For example, if you have to get up several times during the night to pee, limit the amount you drink in the hour or so before going to bed.
  • Avoid drinking caffeine or alcohol, which can disturb your sleep cycle, before bedtime.
  • Turn off your computer and avoid your phone screen a few hours before going to sleep.
  • Drink a calming herbal tea or engage in a calming activity to help you unwind before bed.
