Suggestions for Good Sleep

  • Don’t spend too much time in bed.
  • Get up at the same time each day.
  • Daily exercise can help deepen sleep.
  • Make your bedroom comfortable and free of disturbing noise and light.
  • Keep room temperature moderate. Cool head; warm body.
  • Eat regular meals and do not go to sleep hungry.
  • Try to avoid drinking a lot of liquids after 8p.
  • Avoid alcohol in the evening; it elicits adrenaline release in the wee hours.
  • Try not to smoke when you are having trouble sleeping.
  • Don’t take your problems to bed.
  • Reduce or eliminate caffeinated beverages in the evening.
  • Only use the bedroom for sleep and sexual activity. Do not read, eat, or watch TV in bed.
  • Don’t watch the clock; turn clocks away from you.
  • Avoid daytime naps.
  • Don’t “try” to fall asleep.
  • Eliminate exposure to backlit devices in the 2 hours before bedtime.
