Healthy Sleep Habits to Help You Get the Rest You Need

Do you have enough sleep every night? According to a YouGov survey in March 2022, sleeping through the night is rare among Singapore residents, as less than one-fifth do.

If you suffer from sleep problems, you should adopt healthy sleep habits to help you get the rest you need. Lack of sleep can lead to depression, high blood pressure, and a weak immune system.

You should set a regular bedtime and wake up at the same time every day. This helps your body's internal clock, which controls your sleep patterns. Avoid activities before bedtime that can disrupt your sleep, such as watching television or reading a book.

Make sure your bedroom is dark and comfortable. Avoid watching TV or playing video games in the evening. The light from electronics can trick your body into thinking it's daytime and delay the release of melatonin.
