Start with the knowledge that you can and will improve your sleep. You need to. Your health and happiness depend on it.
Then take a moment to consider:
- When you sleep
- Where you sleep
- What you eat and drink in the hours before sleep
- What you watch and do before you sleep
Lifestyle changes are your first and best option for improving your sleep. If you are still struggling, talk to your doctor about what might be causing your sleep difficulty. If you need a short-term sleep aid—whether it's over the counter or prescription—talk to your doctor about which one might be best for your situation and health.
