You have considerably more control over the quality of your sleep than you probably realize. The solution to sleep problems is also linked to your daily routine, just as how well you sleep at night influences how you feel throughout the day.

If you adjust how you spend your day, you can have a better night’s sleep.

1.  Try to accomplish your to-do list during the day. Evenings should be a time to relax and unwind. Do not attempt to complete many duties prior to going to bed.

2. Turn out the lights, specially digital screens, before going to bed

Set an “electronic” curfew to help you sleep better at night. That means no television, computer, tablet, or phone for at least 30 minutes before turning off the lights.

3. Put a caffeine curfew in place! Caffeine-containing beverages, such as tea, soda, and energy drinks should be avoided 6 to 8 hours before bedtime. Consume no more than four 8-ounce cups of coffee per day.

4. Exercise regularly and stay fit and active. If you exercise during the day, you’ll have better success falling asleep faster.
