Exercising too late

Do you go to the gym or exercise just before going to bed? This can affect your sleeping habits as exercising speeds your heart rate and generally makes you feel more alert. This is ideal for mornings as it can make you feel more prepared for the day, but at night this could cause issue. Trying exercising earlier so by the time you go to bed, you will have a better chance of feeling tired from your workout and achieving a good night’s sleep.

Drinking too much caffeine

Doctors recommend patients struggling with their sleeping habits to not drink caffeine after noon or 2pm, as this leaves enough time the caffeine to leave your body before bedtime. If this wouldn’t suit your lifestyle, then aim to drink caffeine in the evenings and see if there's a difference in how much sleep you get.

Using technology before bed

Checking work emails, watching TV and browsing social media all keep your brain active, which is why it’s bad to do just before going to bed. It’s important to destress in the evenings as it’s not just good for your sleep routine, its good for your mental health. Maybe try reading a book before going to bed instead of watching a movie, you might be surprised at how quickly you fall asleep later on.
