You’re wide awake at 3 a.m. and trying to recall the last time you got a good night’s sleep. The amount of sleep you require, your capacity to get enough sleep, and the quality of your sleep all change with time. However, just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean you should give up your sleep habits. Isn’t it true that having difficulties sleeping is just a part of growing older? In a nutshell, yes and no.

Pay attention to your body’s signals and develop a pattern that suits you and that you can stick to during this “new normal” time. Maintain a regular schedule, which may help along with taking advantage of the early morning light. It’s fine if this is a different timetable than you’re used to. Every day of the week, get up at the same hour.



The 24/7 news cycle rarely gives new information in the overnight hours that you can’t wait to hear in the morning, and it’s more likely to stimulate your mind or instill panic, making it difficult to fall and remain asleep. At least one hour before bedtime, avoid the news and all electronic gadgets. Set a timer or perhaps turn on the sleep option on your television to remind yourself. Make a covenant with your family to follow these guidelines.


Not all sleep issues, however, are easily managed and may indicate the presence of a sleep disorder such as apnea, restless legs syndrome, narcolepsy, or another clinical sleep condition. If your sleep problems don’t improve with sleep hygiene practices, you should see your doctor or a sleep specialist. By consulting a healthcare professional, your chances of getting a good night’s sleep will improve. Some of these suggestions will be easier to include into your day-to-day and evening routines than others.
