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.
