10 Tips for Better Sleep

* Go to bed and wake up at the same time

* Don't exercise right before bedtime

* Avoid caffeine or nicotine. Caffeine can take 8 hours to wear off.

* Avoid alcohol before bed. It mau help you fall asleep but it will keep you
from deep sleep.

* Avoid large meals or filling beverages late at night. Indigestion can
interfere with sleep.

* Don't nap after 3p.m. Don't take naps longer than an hour.

* Unwind before bed with soothing activities such as reading or listening to
music.

* Take a hoy bath---a drop in body can help you feel sleepy

* Get rid of distractions: No bright lights, noisy computer or uncomfortable
bed.

*Keep your bedroom cool.

I have insomnia. I lay down and I get to sleep after hours--5 hours max. It is very frustrating. I am taking SLEEPASIL to get sleep early but I also get up really early.
