Tips on Getting Better Sleep

Want to sleep better at night? Be easy on caffeine and liquor six hours before bedtime, keep your room dark and comfortable, don’t go to bed hungry or too full, don’t let distracting pets sleep in the bed, avoid naps during the day, exercise more often and try to not watch television or eat in bed at bedtime.
