You can improve your sleep habits by getting regular exercise, avoiding daytime naps, avoiding caffeine and powering down electronics before bed. Maintain a strict sleep schedule, which means going to bed and getting up at the same time every day. If youre overweight, snore or have been told you stop breathing during sleep, see a sleep specialist and be evaluated for sleep apnea. Otherwise, if you have insomnia or other type of sleep problem, avoid rushing to use over-the-counter sleep aids. Work with your health provider to determine the cause and discuss remedies.
