tips to improve your sleep

In today's society, the lack of sleep is a growing phenomenon. With the hectic pace of life, it's often the hours of sleep that are first targeted when we want to save time and be more productive.

But ... Are we really more productive?

You may be surprised to learn that it's just the opposite! Did you know that spending a sleepless night or sleeping only four/ five hours a night affects performance in the same way as alcohol abuse?

Indeed, it causes a disorder that equates to 0.1% alcohol. It is no wonder that in this situation, your abilities to drive, work, and do the daily activities are severely affected.

Otherwise, if you sleep around 8h / night, sleep is more likely to encode and restructure information. As a result, it improves your ability to solve problems, be more creative, and do more in less time.

What must be remembered then: it is by betting on quality sleep and an average duration of 8 hours that you will actually manage to be more productive.

If you want to know how to improve your sleep quality? Read below some amazing tips:

Tips to improve sleep

1. Avoid looking at screens before going to bed and avoid having screens in your room
