There are simple things that you can do and simple changes that you can implement that can help you sleep better at night. Read on to know how you can improve the quality of your sleep.

2. Do not eat before sleeping. Eating before sleeping can cause sleeplessness because of the body trying to digest the food that has been consumed. Make it a habit to eat your dinner before eight in the evening and not to consume anything solid after. When you feel hungry at nigh time what you can do is a eat a piece of fruit or simply drink water or caffeine-free herbal tea.

3. Do not work before sleeping. Some people have the habit of working immediately before sleeping. This is not a good habit because you are not putting your mind in a relaxed state before sleeping when you tend your work. To avoid working before sleeping, then do not put your work desk or computer inside your bed room.

These are just some of the things that you can do to help sleep better.
