- Most commonly people sleep with lights on in their room, not necessarily a night light but lights from outside (due to not having blackout blinds), Mobile phone charger lights, TV lights etc. Ideally you need to sleep in a darker room as possible!
- Register what you do an hour before bedtime, most people are on iPads, phones, laptops, computers and/or watch TV.
- Caffeine is incredibly important when it comes to sleep, even if you have the bulk of your caffeine within the first part of your day, just be cautious on how much your in taking!
