Add white noise. Most people can't fall asleep when it's too loud. Wear ear plugs to drown out disturbing sounds and turn on "white noise" (like a fan or rain CD) so you can sleep more soundly.

Relax a little. Schedule some downtime each day for meditative activities like stretching, reading or a enjoying a hot bath. This canhelp you unwind after an intense, stressful day so you'll sleep more soundly.

Limit caffeine. It keeps you awake day and night. Aim for less than 1-2 cups of caffeinated beverages during the day, and avoid them at lest four hours before bed for optimal sleep.

8/14: Get a check-up. If you toss and turn most nights, you could be suffering from a sleep disorder. Visit your physician--the sooner you find out what's worng, the sooner you can fix it.

emoticon one and I think I'm getting too much sleep some evenings -- 9 hours seems a bit high, and I think I'd even feel better if I slept more like the 8.

Don't oversleep. Hitting the snooze button each day and slepping in on the weekends can actually make you MORE tired. Aim for a healthy 7-8 hours each night.

Eat at regular intervals. This keeps your energy and blood sugar levels stable all day long. With fewer highs and lows, you'll be alert all day and ready to sleep at night.

8/11:
Avoid tobacco products all contain nicotine, a powerful stimulant that can interfere with sleep. Don't smoke or use tobacco before bed, but even better--take steps to quit today

Go to earlier. As simple as it sems, going to bed earlier can help you get the extra sleep your body craves. Even if you don't feel tired, try lying down about an hour earlier until you get a full 7-8 hours each night.

Exercise in the morning. Working out within three or four hours of bedtime can make it harder to fall asleep. Try morning or afternoon workouts instead.

Turn down the lights. It's more difficult to fall and stay asleep in a room that is too bright. Wear a sleeping amsk and close the blinds and curtains to diminish light and set the mood for sleep

Let it out. Try to decrease your brain activity before bed by writing down your thoughts in a journal. It will help clear your mind so that you can close the book on today and move forward.

Turn your back on the clock. Studies show that watching the clock into the morning hours makes you more anxious and less able to fall asleep. Move the clock so that you can't see it from bed.

Have a light snack. Eating a heavy meal too close to bedtime can interfere with sleep. To ensure you get plenty of shut-eye, try a light snack before bed, but avoid protein-rich and caffeine-containing foods and beverages.

8/4:
Think positive. A pessimistic outlook can significantly increase your risk of insomnia. People who focus on th epositive tend to sleep better and experience better health in general.

Keep a sleep schedule. Go to bed and wake up at the same times every day--including weekends. You'll fall asleep faster and have more energy each day.
