Sleep Hygiene

Dr. Alex Jimenez describes sleep hygiene as a variety of different habits which are often necessary to achieve a proper quality of sleep in order to rise with full daytime alertness. Sleep is essential towards an individual’s mental and physical health and well-being because it plays an important role in the body’s natural healing and repairing functions. The most important sleep hygiene measure is to maintain a regular sleeping pattern. According to Dr. Jimenez, heavy meals before bed, caffeine or alcohol before bed, and even improper sleeping postures accompanied by pain and discomfort, can be frequent poor sleep hygiene practices which can interfere with the sleep quality of many individuals. The various articles pertaining to sleep can help to provide a useful insight towards improving sleep and overall health.
