Current research clearly shows that most sleep problems can be solved by simple, practical changes in bedtime routines. While scientists say there is no one-size-ﬁts-all plan for healthy bedtime practices, there is a consensus of on several key elements in developing healthy sleep patterns. Cloud b products can play a central role in each of these steps towards a healthy good night’s sleep. Today, we’re sharing how sleep can be improved with a set routine.
Set A Routine
While their are many different but effective types of bedtime routines, researchers agree that the most important factor is that they are routine. In a 2009 study, researchers found that simply sticking to a routine led to children falling asleep faster and staying asleep longer. They also found that the mothers’ overall mood improved signiﬁcantly.
A 2012 study from Japan found that irregular bedtimes were linked to lower sleep quality, and a 2013 study from the U.S. found that regular bedtimes were strongly connected to better reading and math scores. The foundation of great sleep, scientists agree, is ﬁnding a routine and sticking to it.
