Sleep hygiene is a general term that is more often referred to as sleep habits, and they can be helpful or unhelpful. It is often discussed in cognitive behavioural therapy to treat insomnia. They are often simple things that you can change without a huge difference in your evening routine.
I wrote before about understanding the nature of suffering, and so I thought the logical progression would be then to talk about its complement, the thing we do want – happiness.

Despite what you may have heard, mindfulness is not a particularly “spiritual” practice. You’re simply noticing what’s going on around and inside you in the present moment without judging it. Instead of the usual human experience of being blindfolded by a constant stream of judgments, worries, regrets, emotions, and conditioned responses, once you become mindful, you start to actually see and participate in the world around you.
