Dr. Falk's Sleep Hygiene Tips
Do you find it difficult to fall asleep? do you lay awake at night tossing and turning? How rested do you feel in the morning? Here are a few Tips from Dr. Falk on how to get a better sleep.
Maintain a regular wake time, even on days off/weekends
Keep a regular schedule. Regular time for meals, medications, chores & other activities help keep your inner clock running smoothly
Try to go to bed only when you are drowsy
If you are unable to fall asleep after 30 minutes, GET UP! Leave your room & engage in a quiet activity. Don’t try to fall asleep outside the bedroom. Return to bed when you are tired. Sleep is like a train schedule: If you miss a train, you have to wait for the next one, and it won’t come any quicker if you lie in bed and feel frustrated because you can’t sleep.
Bedroom is for Intimacy, Sleep, & times of illness
Avoid napping during the daytime
Establish a relaxing pre-sleep ritual, 10 minutes of meditation, enjoy a nice calming tea, do a little journalling. Anything to help put your body into a relaxed state.
