Sleep is essential for our minds and bodies.

Getting a good night’s sleep of around 8 hours boosts concentration and enhances focus and mood. Well-rested individuals generally perform better in mental tasks and problem-solving compared to those who are sleep-deprived.

Keep track of your sleep to ensure you’re getting as close to 8-hours as possible without oversleeping. While lots of sleep is generally good, too much sleep will also harm your concentration and lead to a vicious cycle!

Getting enough sleep can be a challenge, so if you’re a light sleeper, it’s worth going to bed earlier and trying out different strategies to boost your sleep quality.

First off, ditch the phone and laptop before bed. If you can, don’t expose yourself to any screen for an hour before you try to sleep. Instead, try to read or do something mundane before sleep, so you feel bored – this is proven to help people switch off and become more sleepy.

  • Aim for 8 hours of sleep per night.
  • If you’re a light sleeper, pay extra attention to your sleep to ensure you’re getting enough.
  • If you’re a heavy sleeper, try to not sleep in too much.
  • Avoid screens before bed – this might be the best sleep habit you ever get into!
