Tips for a Good Night's Sleep

  • Check the environment for things that may disrupt our sleep, such as too much light or noise.
  • Try keeping your bedroom set at 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Use your bed and bedroom for sleeping, not watching TV, reading, or paying bills, etc.
  • Follow a regular schedule for sleeping and waking, even on the weekends.
  • Exercise in the late afternoon to unwind. Don't exercise just before bed -- it can wind you up.
  • Watch what and when you eat. A big or late evening meal may make you drowsy, but your digestive system may keep you awake later. An empty stomach may also make you toss and turn.
  • Watch what you drink. Avoid caffeine for six hours before bedtime. Avoid alcohol before bed. Alcohol may put you to sleep, but you'll sleep poorly. Warm milk can help you sleep.
