Sleep management principles
- Set and keep a regular bedtime hour.
- Develop a bedtime routine—anything from reading to having a glass of milk.
- Set an alarm clock for bedtime as well as for waking.
- Avoid caffeine after noon each day.
- Avoid alcohol, which blocks the deepest stage of sleep.
- See a physician if chronic drowsiness persists even after
proper amounts of sleep.
