Tips of achieving restful sleep revealed
Individuals keen to get the best night's sleep possible have been advised of a number of measures they can take to achieve just that.
Psychiatrist at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco Dr Laura Davies told the San Francisco Chronicle that the difficulty for many does not lie in getting the recommended amount of sleep, but in achieving the quality of rest that will lead them to be fully alert and rested the next day.
Dr Davies highlighted alcohol consumption as a tricky area for many people, as while drinking alcohol will often make people sleepy, the quality of sleep they receive when inebriated is dramatically lower than when they sleep normally.
As a result, cutting back on alcoholic drinks before bedtime can be an excellent way for people to improve the quality of their rest.
Meanwhile, developing a bedtime routine that individuals stick to daily can also help train the body to rest at certain times, providing a natural boost to the quality of sleep.
