  • If you have trouble sleeping at night, don’t nap during the day. 

  • Establish relaxing pre-sleep rituals, such as a warm bath or a few minutes of reading. 

  • Create a pleasant sleep environment. Make it as dark and quiet as possible. 

  • If you can’t sleep, don’t stay in bed fretting. After 30 minutes, go to another room and involve yourself in a relaxing activity until you feel sleepy.
