New sleep can be had, and you can do it all on your own. To start, pay attention to what you’re doing after 4 pm. Taking naps, drinking caffeinated beverages, exercising, and even taking decongestants late in the day can make falling asleep more difficult. Additionally, pay attention to your yawning. That’s your body’s way of telling you it’s time for bed. It’s always best to hit the sack at the first sign of you feeling tired. Next, set the scene for going to sleep. Make your bed a sanctuary for sleep and sex only, eliminating all screens and other activities. Follow this up by placing your alarm clock far enough away from your bed that it’s not easy to check at night. Watching hours go by as you lie awake only adds to the frustration and anxiety of insomnia. Read more about making your sleep better here.
