Are you making these common sleep mistakes?

Are you making these common sleep mistakes?

While the importance of sleep for our continued wellbeing is well documented, lack of sleep is a common complaint. In some instances there is nothing that can be done to prevent poor sleep, however for many, poor sleep can be improved by simply identifying some common sleep mistakes and fixing them. Read on to discover some of the most common sleep mistakes and quick fixes for them.


Inconsistent bedtime

It is important to support your internal body clock by going to bed and waking at the same time each day – even on the weekends!


Lack of sleep preparation

Help your body prepare for sleep by creating a relaxing bedtime routine, that helps you to unwind and relax ready for sleep.


Poor sleep environment

Ensure your bedroom is cool and dark. A comfy bed is a must, and minimising distractions like phones or bright lights is also helpful. 


Bingeing in bed

Keep the television and laptop out of the bedroom. If you need to binge your favourite tv show, use the living room and turn the tv off at least 30 minutes before bed.


Too much daytime sleep

Napping done right is great way to recharge the batteries during the day. Keep it to 20 minutes max and earlier in the day.


Overuse of sleep medication

Sleeping medication is an effective short term option. However, it can be addictive and does not address the cause of the issue.


Reliance on alcohol

While alcohol initially makes you feel sleepy, it lowers the quality of your sleep and often causes you to wake later unable to return to sleep.


Staying in bed if you can’t sleep

Sleepiness comes in waves. If you can't sleep, get up and do a quiet activity, while you wait for the next wave to go back to bed and try again.


Worrying too much about sleep

Poor sleepers can find it difficult to assess how much sleep they have had. Instead of lying in bed worrying about the sleep you haven’t had, use relaxation techniques and simply let your body enjoy the rest.


If your poor sleep continues despite your best attempts, consider the possibility that you may have a specific sleep disorder and seek medical assistance. For further reading visit
