Tips for a Good Night's Sleep

  • Exercise regularly, but not too close to bedtime
  • Don't consume caffeine within six hours of bedtime, and avoid alcohol and smoking two hours before bedtime
  • Go to bed and get up at the same time everyday, even on weekends
  • Don't stay in bed if you can't fall asleep. Get out of bed and sit in a dimly lit area with a boring book or magazine until you feel drowsy. Then attempt to go to bed again. Turn the face of your clock away from you so that you don't "clock watch."
  • Avoid watching TV, reading, etc., while in bed
  • Try to relax before bedtime - take a warm bath, listen to relaxing music, or read
