Good Sleep Practices

  • Use the bedroom only for pleasant and relaxing activity.
  • Never stay in bed when unable to sleep. Get up and do relaxing or boring things until sleepy.
  • Maintain regular and adequate (7-8) sleeping hours. Get up at the same time each day and do not lie in bed trying to make up for "lost" sleep.
  • No daytime napping. Day and evening naps reduce nighttime sleepiness.
  • Avoid taking any stimulants before bedtime. This includes coffee, tea, alcohol, nicotine, diet drinks containing caffeine, medications for relief of menstrual pain, and cold/flu medications.
  • Establish a daily routine including exercise and maintain it.
  • Avoid eating heavy meals prior to bedtime, and avoid going to bed hungry.
  • Approach bedtime as relaxed as possible. Establish a routine transition period for bedtime and maintain the routine daily.
  • Avoid taking over-the-counter sleeping medications.
