An uninterrupted deep sleep helps your brain process memories, stress, and emotions. It boosts your mood and improves your memory. When you have had a deep sleep at night, you will have more energy during the day. Likewise, deep sleep helps rejuvenate your body and repair damaged tissues.
Keeping your phone on silent means you are less likely to have calls or messages disturb your sleep.
Some other great tips on how to improve your quality of sleep are:
- Avoid screens before bed. Screens from your phone and tablets all emit blue light, which has been shown to cause sleep disruptions
- Avoid caffeine, alcohol and heavy meals at night time
- Try to go to bed and wake up around the same time every day
- Have a pre-bedtime routine, this will help you wind down before bedtime.
