  • Get a Better Night’s Sleep

    Keep a consistent bedtime and wake up time for an established cycle.

    Limit caffeine, which stays in your body for up to 8 hours.

    Skip the nighttime snack that keeps your body awake to digest.

    Avoid nicotine and alcohol that interfere with deep sleep.

    Sleep in a cool,

    dark and quiet

    room on a comfortable

    surface.

    Save your bed for sleep to trigger sleep hormones when you go to bed.

    Avoid naps or limit them to 20

    minutes.

    Teach your body to relax

    through meditation,

    prayer or another

    technique.

    Exercise regularly, but not too close to bedtime.
