Sleep is a very important part of our health, and especially in 2020.

I love sleep, and I hate when I go to bed hoping to get a nice full night of sleep, and end up waking up a bunch and not feeling rested when I get up.

Apparently, I’m not alone when it comes to not getting great sleep all the time. A study that came out in March found that less than half of American adults get the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep. I never think too much I work out

nto why I wouldn’t be sleeping well, but these reasons definitely make sense.

What you do, or don’t do leading up into bedtime can make a big difference in your sleep.

Here’s a list of things doctors say NOT to do before going to bed:

  1. Don’t watch the news
  2. Avoid working in bed
  3. Don’t work out
  4. Don’t have tense conversations
  5. Don’t drink caffeine
  6. Don’t drink alcohol
  7. Try to limit your technology use
  8. Don’t turn your lights on bright
  9. Try not to spend too long awake while in bed.
