While you might not be able to control the factors that interfere with your sleep, you can adopt habits that encourage better sleep. Dr Emeka, Brand Ambassador of AI-based fitness and lifestyle coaching app Freeletics, offered his recommendations.

Stick to a schedule

The natural body clock functions on a set loop aligning itself with sunrise and sunset.

Studies have highlighted irregular sleep patterns can alter the body clock and reduce some of the signs that signal the brain to sleep.

Going to sleep at consistent times throughout the week and meditating before bed can assure a better chance of getting a good night’s sleep.

Exercise

Experts believe optimising your exercise routine can potentially help improve sleep.

Studies have found 

Charlene Gamaldo, medical director of Johns Hopkins Centre for Sleep at Howard County General Hospital, said: “We have solid evidence that exercise does help you fall asleep more quickly and improves sleep quality.

“But there’s still some debate as to what time of the day you should exercise. I encourage people to listen to their bodies.”

DON’T MISS

Limit Daily Naps

Napping at the wrong time of the day or for too long can backfire.

Dr Ramiz Fargo, medical director for the Loma Linda University Sleep Disorder Centre, told CNET that most people can take naps and still enjoy a healthy sleep cycle, but people who struggle with insomnia should avoid napping.

In people who already experience nighttime wakefulness, napping can exacerbate the problem and lead to a sleep detriment.

Long daytime naps should be limited to 30 minutes and should be avoided late in the day.

Limit caffeine intake

Caffeine has a number of benefits and is consumed by many. A single dose can enhance focus and energy.

However, consuming coffee late in the day can stimulate the nervous system and stop the body from fully relaxing at night.

When it comes to daily caffeine intake, it’s important to think about the amount of caffeine and the time of day you’re consuming it.

It’s also important to be aware of which drinks contain caffeine. Tea, energy drinks, sodas and chocolate all count toward your total daily caffeine consumption.
