Sleep Hygiene Guides
When it comes to sleep, and we talk about hygiene, we’re not talking about brushing your teeth and washing behind your ears before bed.
Sleep hygiene is not about cleanliness — it’s about the behavior, habits, and creation of a sleep environment that encourages healthy sleep.
What is Sleep Hygiene?
Sleep hygiene refers to both the behaviors and maintenance of environmental conditions that promote good sleep.
Sleep hygiene encompasses things like scheduling regular sleep, sticking to consistent pre-bed routines, and maintaining a comfortable, distraction-free sleep environment.
