Sleep management principles (12-27-99)

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