As adults, we become increasingly aware just how important a good night’s sleep can be to our productivity.
There are few thing worse than having a dreadful night’s sleep knowing you’ve got a busy day ahead at work. Without a full night’s shut-eye, we never feel at our best the following day.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, adults should aim to get around 8 hours each night. As you might imagine, this is often nothing but a pipe dream for many.
Sleep deprivation is actually starting to become a big problem too. According to this article from BBC News, the UK economy loses £40billion every year due to sleep deprived employees.
When you look at the routines of some of the most successful people in the world, you’ll find that many of them enjoy plenty of shut-eye each night. Take a look at this list from Huffington Post which includes Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates.
One of the reasons many of us get a bad night’s sleep is because of our poor bedtime routines.
Many of us have certain habits close to bedtime which disrupt our body and its natural process of facing asleep.

Thankfully, a new infographic from sleepypeople.com has lots of helpful advice so you can create a better bedtime routine.
It’s called ‘13 Things Successful People Do Before Going To Bed’ and covers everything from unplugging from tech before bed to advice on what to eat and drink.
