To ensure you get enough sleep daily, you should stick to a sleep schedule so your body knows when it is time to sleep. Check if your mattress and pillows are comfortable enough for you. Check if your bedroom has the ideal temperature, sound, and light.

Also, avoid stimulants such as coffee, energy drinks, and external lights, including those from electronic devices, at least 30 minutes before bedtime.

Whether you are looking for love or not, it is important for you to get a good night’s sleep regularly.
