- Remove electronic gadgets in your area of sleep. Never use the phone or laptop an hour before you sleep, since that brightness wakes up the brain.
- Also keep in mind that reading is also bad, since it keeps you interested. Never go to bed with a book by your side.
- Don’t purchase alarm clock with bright digits, their light will disturb the darkness for sleeping. Use dimmer clocks.
