Insomnia can affect not only your energy level but also your health. If you're having trouble sleeping, try this advice.
Go to bed and get up at the same time every day.
Avoid alcohol close to bedtime. Alcohol may help you to fall asleep, but it won't keep you asleep.
Avoid caffeine later in the day. Caffeine can stay in your system up to 14 hours.
Get some sun. Experts recommend exposure to an hour of morning sunlight for people having problems falling asleep.
Keep your bedroom quiet, dark and at a comfortable temperature.
Don't lie in bed awake. If you can't fall asleep within 30 minutes, get up, go to another room and do something else until you feel sleepy.
