Getting a Better Night’s Sleep

Daylight Saving Time has many people overtired and out of their routines. If you’re having trouble sleeping, hearing how important it is may be frustrating. But simple things can improve your odds of a good night’s sleep.

  • Stick to a sleep schedule. Go to bed & wake up at the same time every day, even on the weekends.
  • Get some exercise every day. But not close to bedtime.
  • Go outside. Try to get natural sunlight for at least 30 minutes every day.
  • Avoid nicotine & caffeine. Both are stimulants that keep you awake.
  • Don’t take naps.
  • Avoid alcohol & large meals before bedtime.
  • Limit electronics before bed. Read a book or listen to soothing music.
  • Create a sleeping environment. Keep it cool & dark. Get rid of sound & light. Silence your cell.
  • Don’t lie in bed awake. If you can’t fall asleep after 20 minutes, get up & do a relaxing activity until you feel sleepy again.
  • See your health care provider if nothing you try helps.
