Tips for a good night's sleep

1) A good mattress is essential to a good night's sleep. It's the most common cause of sleeping complaints, primarily because many people tends to keep their mattresses for over 15 years when they should be renewed every 10 years. A high quality mattress can lead to more restful sleep as well as ease general back problems and irritations.

2) Only use your Bedroom for Sleeping. Avoid watching TV in your bed or working at a desk in your bedroom. To get the best night's sleep possible it's advised to only keep your bedroom for sleeping, otherwise subconsciously it can be difficult to relax when you're trying to get to sleep.

3) Avoid Stimulants. This includes alcohol, smoking and caffeine. Many people drink alcohol in the evening to help them get to sleep. However, although it will help you get to sleep your actual sleep will be of a much lower quality as alcohol leads to a restless night's sleep. Caffeine causes the opposite problem - it makes it hard to get to sleep in the first place, and smoking is generally bad as it can cause breathing difficulties during the night.

4) Adjust the Room Temperature. The ideal sleeping temperature is slightly cooler than room temperature. Try to ensure that your room is aired out and slightly cooler than normal as it's very hard to get a good night's sleep in a warm and stuffy room.

5) Exercise During the Day. The most common reason for people being unable to get to sleep is that they just don't feel tired enough. Exercising during the day will relieve this problem through tiring out your muscles. However, don't do exercise too close to bedtime or you could find it difficult to get to sleep.
