Make your bedroom dark and quiet. If there is too much light, put dark shades on your windows or wear a sleep mask. If there’s noise, wear earplugs. Falling Asleep  Keep a regular sleep/wake cycle on weekdays and weekends. Try not to vary it more than one hour. If you sleep until noon on Sunday, you’re likely to have a hard time getting to sleep Sunday night.  If you take daytime naps, limit them to 30 minutes.  Don’t let yourself fall asleep before you get into bed. If you fall asleep in a chair watching TV, getting back to sleep might be difficult.  If you have a hard time “turning your mind off” once you are in bed, use thoughts with rhythm or repetition to help clear your mind (e.g., count backwards from 500 or repeat a word or phrase).  Avoid over-the-counter sleeping pills. If sleep problems persist, speak to your doctor about prescription sleep aids. Sleep Tips
