What is a good nights sleep though?
I would define a good nights sleep as being at least eight hours in duration, with no interruptions, allowing your body to reach a REM state (deep sleep, don’t worry about the technical lingo, it’s just there if you want to google it).
Also you should ideally try to get to sleep before midnight. There’s an old saying that an hour’s sleep before midnight is worth the same as two hours after midnight.
After a good night’s sleep you should wake up feeling refreshed and practically leap out of bed.
So how do you go about making sure you have a good nights sleep? Make your bedroom your bed room.
Here’s a list of things that you need in your bedroom:
That’s it. Even a window is optional, in fact you’ll probably get a better sleep if you sleep in a room without a window. If you must have a window in your room then I suggest getting the heaviest curtains you can find to shut out every bit of light when you plan to sleep.
Your bedroom should be used for sleeping. Your bedroom should not be a room where you hang out, play games, watch TV, surf the net, do college work etc (if you can help it).
Try to create a mental association between your bedroom and sleeping, it will make it easier to just drift off to sleep once you hit your bed.
