Sleep Hygiene

·          Establish a bedtime routine to cue your body that it’s time to sleep
·          Don’t nap during the day
·          Find time for exercise during the day
·          Avoid caffeine, nicotine & alcohol within 6-8 hours of bedtime
·          Get out of bed if you cannot sleep
·          Make sure that your sleep environment is comfortable
·          Use your bed for sleep
·          Adults need 7.5-8.5 hours of sleep per night
·          Don’t go to bed hungry, eat a small snack an hour before sleeping
·          Avoid looking at the clock, this may cause anxiety
·          Avoid all nighters and staying up late to study, the information won’t stick
·          Do not use drugs to help you fall asleep, for example: Benadryl and NyQuil
