Before considering how to get a better sleep, it is important to have a clear idea what a good night sleep is. According to the National Sleep Foundation, following are the ‘4’ factors that define good sleep.

- At night, you wake up only once
- It takes just 20 minutes to fall back to sleep if you wake up in the middle of night
- 85% of the time on bed you are asleep
