Trying to fall asleep is often difficult and with the stress of work or school weighing on a person, it can make it feel impossible. However, there is actually a way to get the best sleep of your life every night. One major step to get a really good sleep is to put away all electronics 30 minutes before you go to bed, “Dr. Dan Siegel, a clinical professor of psychiatry from the UCLA School of Medicine, has explained to Business Insider just how damaging the effects of interacting with our phones, tablets or computer screens right before we go to sleep can be” says Cosmopolitan(http://www.cosmopolitan.com/uk/body/health/news/a33734/damage-done-screens-bedtime). When you  stare at your screens just before bed, you are soaking up a stream of photons which tell our brains that you want to stay awake.

Another tip to get the best sleep is to limit daily naps, “Long daytime naps can interfere with nighttime sleep. If you choose to nap, limit yourself to up to 30 minutes and avoid doing so late in the day,” says the Mayo clinic.

A key factor for a good sleep is to try to exercise during the day. People who exercise sleep better at night, and are less tired during the day.
