Remind your patients of these 5 sleep hygiene tips, which start well before bedtime, reports Whole9.

Today we’ll be taking about after-lunch strategies to improve sleep quality. If you incorporate these things during the day, it will improve your sleep quality at night. First, we have to acknowledge that preparing for sleep several hours prior to going to bed does not come naturally to many people, let alone preparing for bed as soon as you get up. Many people simply cannot think this way, particularly when the strategies they would need to put in place during the day to ensure a good sleep at night put them into conflict with many other aspects of their day – such as work, family, social occasions, and so on. As a general rule, most of us will think and act in the here and now for many of the key decisions in our daily life rather than for something down the track.
