Set a Bedtime
Step one: you'll want to set a bedtime. This will keep things consistent for you and remind you to start preparing for a night of restful sleep each evening.
Conor Heneghan, PhD, is Fitbit's sleep researcher and director of research and algorithms — and he emphasized this emphatically. "It's important to keep a consistent sleep cycle. Shifts (like daylight saving and travel) can impact our schedule, so it's essential to find a routine that helps keep your body on track," Dr. Heneghan told POPSUGAR.
"One significant source of variability is called 'social jet lag,' brought on by the shift in sleep schedules experienced on weekends versus workdays, which can impact your sleep schedule," he continued. "Fitbit found correlations between bedtime consistency and social jet lag, impacting an estimated two-thirds of the population."
