Tips to Sleep Better
• Keep a regular schedule for going to bed and waking up at the same time each day.
• Avoid large meals, caffeine and alcohol before bedtime.
• Reduce the use of electronic devices like smartphones and TVs in the bedroom.
• Find time to exercise during the day.
When to Seek Help for Sleep Problems
About 70 million American suffer from some type of chronic sleep problem. Sleep disorders are conditions that affect a person’s ability to fall or remain asleep, make it difficult to stay awake during the day, impact a healthy sleep schedule or result in unusual behaviors that disrupt sleep. Some of the most common sleep problems include:
• Obstructive sleep apnea, where a person stops breathing during sleep.
• Restless leg syndrome, where a person experiences an intense and often irresistible urge to move their legs.
• Narcolepsy, where a person has difficulty controlling whether they sleep or stay awake.
• Insomnia, where a person has trouble falling asleep or staying asleep.
