Tips for a Better Night's Sleep

  • Maintain a set bed-time and wake-time, even on the weekends, so your body gets used to a standard sleep-wake schedule.

  • Avoid taking day-time naps so that when it is time for bed your body will be tired and ready to fall asleep.

  • Limit yourself to two cups of coffee in the morning and avoid drinking caffeinated beverages after the morning hours.

  • Use your bed only for sleeping. Doing other activities like reading, watching TV, or doing homework in bed can train your body to stay awake and do these activities in bed, making it more difficult to fall asleep at night.

  • For more tips and guidance towards a more restful night's sleep make an appointment with the Health Lifestyles Guided Self-Change Program.
