So many things can make it hard to get a good night’s sleep. You may be facing work stress and family responsibilities, or maybe your brain is too busy or anxious to switch off? Doctors advise us to get eight hours of quality sleep a night, yet surveys show many Singaporeans are chronically sleep-deprived, logging only six hours sleep a night. This can be damaging to your immune system, because your body repairs itself while you sleep.
While you can’t control some factors that interfere with your sleep, you can start habits that encourage better sleep. Start by sticking to a sleep schedule. Go to bed and get up at approximately the same time every day. Being consistent reinforces your body’s sleep-wake cycle. It also helps to create a restful bedroom environment, with a quality mattress and blackout blinds. It can also help to include some physical activity in your day, and try a few gentle stretches before you get into bed.
To help manage your worries, limit screen time before going to bed – and put your phone on silent. Did you know Singapore has the world’s highest number of internet searches for sleep-texting and sleep-talking? Sleep texting is using your phone to send or reply to a message while asleep. It’s more likely to happen if you sleep near your phone. You hear a message “ping” in your sleep and your brain automatically responds. The text you send probably won’t make much sense but it has still interrupted your sleep.
A final tip is to pay attention to what you eat. Eat a well-balanced diet and try not to skip meals because a rumbling tummy may keep you awake. Consider supporting your healthy sleeping plan by regularly consuming double-boiled chicken essence by Tian Yuan Xiang.

The chicken essence is made the traditional way by double-boiling chickens for a day in a ceramic pot, over a traditional charcoal fire.
