"Here's an abbreviated list of sleep hygiene recommendations from the National Sleep Foundation"
- Limit daytime naps to 30 minutes.
- Avoiding stimulants such as caffeine close to bedtime.
- Exercising to promote good quality sleep.
- Steering clear of food that can be disruptive right before sleep.
- Ensuring adequate exposure to natural light.
- Establishing a regular relaxing bedtime routine.
