.5 Tips for Better Sleep

  1. 1. Go to bed at the same time every night.

  2. 2. Get up at the same time every morning.

  3. 3. Do not read or watch TV in bed, have a designated area for these activities.

  4. 4. Do not stay in bed if you are awake for more then 15min. Get out of bed and do a boring activity (such as a puzzle or read a book). When you’re sleepy, go back to bed.

  1. These tips are good, at this point I’ll try anything. I have a physical disability but for some reason my mind can not shut off & relax at night….Thank you.

  2. one thing i should start doing is going to bed at the same time every night. i always wake at the same time but never go to bed at the same time

  3. These are all great tips, I just bought myself a memory pillow and I am still getting used to it, the first night was awful, but I’m slowly getting used to it now!

  4. I definitely agree with getting up at the same time every morning. On weekends I sleep in just half an hour more and so that doesn’t differ too much from my sleep time for the days I go to work.
