Turn Your Bedroom Into A Rest Inducing Sanctuary
You want to increase all odds of your sleep being restful and plenty. Keep technology and screen time away from the bed as to not have the mind associate that space with anything but sleep. Remember that dreams happen during REM which is the last stage of your sleep cycle. This happens usually during the second half of the night so you want to make sure that you’re letting your body sleep all the way through till then.
Optimize your bedroom space and sleep by keeping the room dark, cool and quiet. You could also try falling asleep to a noise machine or using blackout curtains. As you start falling asleep, plan your dream in advance.
