What is Sleep Hygiene?
We all agree with physical hygiene. Sleep Hygiene is the idea that sleep itself needs its own cleaning. Ones bedtime routine should be thought of a celebration. Part of the ritual is that we put ourselves in the mood and look at what they are doing to get ready for bed. Each person must create his or her own ritual. Many people find it hard because they think of after such a long habit of poor sleep they expect the Sleep Hygiene to work right away and give up. As therapist we must help our clients understand that Sleep Hygiene is something you clean on a regular basis so that it becomes automatic.
