What protocols are recommended for improving sleep?


To improve sleep quality, the following protocols are recommended:

  1. Maintain regular sleep patterns: Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, including weekends. Consistency anchors your sleep and enhances its quality 1.

  2. Control light exposure: Dim down most of the lights in your home in the last hour before bed, which helps induce sleepiness through increased melatonin levels 1.

  3. Manage bad nights strategically:

    • Don’t sleep in or go to bed earlier after a bad night; this disrupts your sleep cycle.
    • Avoid increasing caffeine intake and napping to compensate for lost sleep 2.
  4. Cool down your sleep environment: Lowering the room temperature can help in promoting deeper, more restorative sleep 3.
