Tips for a Good Night’s Rest

  • Go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even on the weekends.
  • Follow relaxing nighttime rituals such as taking a warm bath, reading a book or listening to music or nature tapes.
  • Exercise early in the day, every day.
  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine at bedtime.
  • Do not bring your work into the bedroom. Desks full of unfinished work are not conducive to sleep, and worrying about work at bedtime will not solve any problems.
  • Keep your body clock running smoothly by eating, sleeping, napping and exercising at the same time each day when possible.
  • Use sleeping pills very conservatively and never drink alcohol after taking a sleeping pill.
