Get Enough Sleep 


Take Action!

Small changes to your daily routine can help you get the sleep you need.

Change what you do during the day.

  • Exercise earlier in the day, not right before you go to bed.
  • Stay away from drinks and foods with caffeine (such as coffee, tea, soda, or chocolate) late in the day.
  • If you have trouble sleeping at night, limit daytime naps to less than 1 hour.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation. This means no more than 1 drink a day for women or 2 drinks a day for men. Alcohol can keep you from sleeping soundly.
  • Don’t eat a big meal close to bedtime.
  • Quit smoking. (The nicotine in cigarettes disturbs sleep.)
