With a few simple guidelines, you can have better sleep tonight. At some point in their lives, for any number of reasons, nearly all Americans will have difficulties sleeping and suffer from acute insomnia. This can lead to significant distress, but have no fear! There are simple steps to take that will help you to sleep better tonight.

Get up and go to bed at the same time every day, even on weekends.
We are creatures of habit, and our sleep is no exception. Once you determine your sleep needs, you should meet those needs every day. By consistently going to bed and getting up at the same time, we condition our body to follow a regular pattern of sleep. This allows our bodys natural clock, called a circadian rhythm, to help initiate and maintain our sleep.

Make sure your sleep environment is quiet, dark, cool, and comfortable.
Studies find that sleeping in a cool environment is most conducive to sleep. By eliminating excess noise and light, we can minimize the disruptions that ...more

Make sure that your bedroom is welcoming for sleep. If you have problems sleeping because of lighting, add dark curtains onto the windows. You can also try an eye mask to help keep bright lights out. If you have a television in your bedroom, make sure it is turned off before bed. Ear plugs can help tune out a snoring partner. Think about the temperature in your bedroom. Is it too hot or too cold? If so, adjust the temperature to a comfortable level.

Eat less before bed. You may be in for a long night if you go to sleep on a full stomach, which can increase chances for heartburn. Try not to eat within 2 and 3 hours before bed. Limit your use of caffeine, which can keep you awake and alert longer than you may desire. Also, reduce your use of nicotine before bed, as it is a stimulant and can keep you up at night.

Use your bed only for sleep and sex. When you do other tasks in your bed, it may become hard for you to allow yourself to rest there.

Set a regular bedtime. Go to bed at the same time every night. Choose a time when you normally feel tired, so that you dont toss and turn. Try not to break this routine on weekends when it may be tempting to stay up late. If you want to change your bedtime, help your body adjust by making the change in small daily increments, such as 15 minutes earlier or later each day.
Wake up at the same time every day. If youre getting enough sleep, you should wake up naturally without an alarm. If you need an alarm clock to wake up on time, you may need to set an earlier bedtime. As with your bedtime, try to maintain your regular waketime even on weekends.
Nap to make up for lost sleep. If you need to make up for a few lost hours, opt for a daytime nap rather than sleeping late. This strategy allows you to pay off your sleep debt without disturbing your natural sleepwake rhythm, which often backfires in insomnia and throws you off for days.
Be smart about napping. While taking a nap can be a ...more
