4. Avoid caffeine and alcohol
All the best sleep tips include this one. Caffeine is a stimulant that, if taken too late in the day, can keep you awake late into the night and prevent you from catching up on much-needed sleep. Although alcohol may help bring on sleep at first, it can also affect the amount of important REM sleep that you get. It’s also a good idea not to raid the fridge too late at night, either.
Sleep tip: Don’t drink coffee in the afternoon and evenings if you’re sensitive to caffeine, or switch to a caffeine-free alternative.
