Sometimes it could be the pillows. They could be too hard, too soft or too lumpy. Or for some people, it could be the thread count of your pillow cases and sheets. Or you could simply be suffering from a sleep disorder.

Whether you are  sleeping in your own bed or a hotel room, you’re always looking for a good night’s sleep.

Sleeping is as important as eating. It is essential for your overall health and wellbeing.

A night’s sleep is divided into five stages, which are defined by types of brain waves that reflect lighter or deeper sleep. Rapid eye movement or REM happens toward morning. This is when dreaming occurs.

The National Sleep Foundation recently released the key indicators of good sleep quality. These indicators were established by a panel of experts.

These indicators include:

  • Sleeping more time while in bed (at least 85 percent of the total time)
  • Falling asleep in 30 minutes or less
  • Waking up no more than once per night; and
  • Being awake for 20 minutes or less after initially falling asleep.
