  • Create a relaxing bedtime ritual.
  • Avoid naps.
  • Exercise daily.
  • Maintain a cool sleeping temperature between 60 degrees and 67 degrees.
  • Buy a comfortable mattress and pillows.
  • Use bright light in the morning to help manage your circadian rhythm.
  • Avoid alcohol and cigarettes.
  • Don't eat heavy meals in the evening.
  • If you can't sleep, switch rooms and do something relaxing until you feel tired.
  • If you still can't sleep, speak with your doctor to find a sleep professional.
