 Going to bed and waking up at the same time each day will get your body into a pattern helping you get a better night sleep.

 Bedtime rituals can get you in the “mood.”

Relaxing activities like reading a book or listening to calming music before going to bed can make it easier to fall asleep. Avoid overusing electronics before going to sleep, as some experts say that artificial light may interfere with sleep.

Put a cap on the naps.

You may think long afternoon naps are beneficial, but if you are having trouble sleeping at night, too much sleep during the day may be to blame. If you must nap, limit them to about 10 to 30 minutes.

Plan your day around your Z’s.
