- Watch your afternoon drinks - stick to water, no caffeine
- If you feel the need for a snack before bedtime, try cottage cheese and banana slices or milk and graham crackers. Do not eat heavy after 6PM.
- Alcohol tends to decrease deep sleep and increase arousals from sleep...like you will wake up in the middle of the night or about 2 AM...so lay off of the booze after a certain hour..Especially late at night..
- A hot bath --tends to make it harder for you to doze off because it raises your body temperature
