Recent breakthroughs in science have helped identify some of the leading factors that can cause Alzheimer's Disease, according to HelpGuide.org.

That means that there are concrete steps that can be taken that can prevent the onset of the disease. The news source claims that one of the most important things to do is to maintain a regular sleep schedule.

Experts recommend going to bed at the same time every night. By establishing this natural rhythm, the brain feels more relaxed and, consequently, sleep quality improves.

Sleeping for at least seven or eight hours each night can reduce the chances of developing Alzheimer's.

To promote good sleeping habits, try to read or take a bath before lying in bed. This can greatly reduce the inner chatter than so often disrupt sleep patterns.

Most important in establishing this sleep schedule is having a dark, calm room with a bed. Blackout shades can close out all the distractions from the outside world and foster a gentle, quiet environment conducive to sleep.

Honeycomb, Roman and Bamboo shades can all have this effect and darken a room during the light summer hours so quality sleep can be achieved.
