Health Tip: Suggestions For a Better Night's Sleep

(HealthDay News) -- Not getting enough sleep? It's probably hurting your health.

The U.S. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke suggests how to improve your sleep:

  • Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends.
  • Exercise for at least 20 minutes a day. But don't exercise just before bedtime.
  • Avoid nicotine, caffeine and alcohol before bedtime.
  • Set a relaxing routine before bed, such as taking a bath, reading or meditating.
  • Maintain a cool and comfortable temperature in your bedroom.
  • Do not watch TV or use any other electronic devices just before bed.
  • If you cannot fall asleep, do not lie in bed for a long time awake. Instead, read a book or listen to music until fatigue sets in.
  • If you often have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, see a doctor.
