iVillage.com: Beauty Sleep: 17 Bedtime Tips

Dr. Drerup’s Top 5 Sleep Tips

1. Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. Being consistent strengthens your body’s sleep-wake cycle and leads to better sleep at night.
2. Watch what you eat and drink. Avoid big, heavy meals as well as spicy or acidic foods, and limit alcohol and caffeine within a few hours of bedtime.
3. Create a bedtime routine. Wind down before bed with a ritual. Limit electronics use: Some studies suggest that screen time or other electronic media before bedtime can interfere with sleep.
4. Get physical. Being physically active (at least three hours before bedtime) every day can promote better sleep. Research suggests that morning is the ideal time to exercise for improvement in sleep quality.
5. Know when it’s time to get help. If you’re still struggling with sleep problems, you may have a sleep disorder that requires treatment with a specialist.
