Nature meant us to wake up at the crack of dawn and sleep when the sun falls. This means that the sunlight has a lot to do with our sleep routines.

Do a lights-out for yourself and your smartphone and stick to it, and watch sleep follow suit.

Have a Routine:

Sticking to a pre-bedtime routine is a great idea as it lets you wind down after a busy day gradually. Be it as simple as taking a shower or reading a few pages of a novel before you sleep. It can help your body prepare for what is to come. After some consistent effort, you will see the difference.
