Home / Eliminate barriers to sleep.

  • There are concrete steps you can take to improve sleep. Think hard and honestly about what interferes with your sleep and work to eliminate them.
  • For example, if you have to get up several times during the night to pee, limit the amount you drink in the hour or so before going to bed.
  • Avoid drinking caffeine or alcohol, which can disturb your sleep cycle, before bedtime.
  • Turn off your computer and avoid your phone screen a few hours before going to sleep.
  • Drink a calming herbal tea or engage in a calming activity to help you unwind before bed.
