Like many people, I have been struggling with getting a good night’s sleep for many years now. I have had very few full nights sleep since my children have been born.
I’ve tried so many things to help improve my sleep. The thing I learned is that having a routine is perhaps the most important thing when it comes to a good night’s sleep.

Here are 5 things everyone should do to get a good night’s sleep:
1. Go to bed at the same time every night.
2. Get up at the same time every morning.
3. Do not read or watch TV in bed, have a designated area for these activities.
4. Do not stay in bed if you are awake for more then 15min. Get out of bed and do a boring activity (such as a puzzle or read a book). When you’re sleepy, go back to bed.
5. Use your bed only for sleeping.
I’ve been trying my best to follow these 5 simple steps and have had better nights in the past month.
