Sleep Hygiene

“Sleep hygiene” refers to healthy habits, behaviours and environmental factors that can be adjusted to help you have a good night’s sleep.

Lifestyle factors such as doing too many stimulating activities close to bed (work, content consumption), consuming excessive caffeine or alcohol, low physical activity and excessively busy schedules pose a risk to obtaining adequate sleep.

Some sleeping problems can be caused by bad sleep habits reinforced over years or even decades. Therefore keeping these sleep habits up can help prevent the onset of common sleep problems such as insomnia which is reported in around 20% of Australians (AHIW). If you do develop sleep problems, you may need more targeted support.
