Tips for Successful Sleep

  1. Establish a comfortable sleep environment complete with a comfortable and supportive mattress and pillows.
  2. Maintain a dark, quiet room to sleep in.
  3. Establish a regular routine that includes going to bed and waking up at the same times everyday, including weekends.
  4. Do not nap for more than 30 minutes during the day or after 3:00pm. Longer naps disrupt the body’s ability to stay asleep.
  5. Develop sleep rituals before going to cue your body to slow down and relax.
  6. Avoid stress and worries at bedtime. Certain activities such as listening to soft music, reading, or taking a warm bath can help you wind down.
  7. Avoid heavy meals late in the evening
  8. Exercising regularly, even for 20 minutes 3 times per week can promote deep sleep
