  • Make sure that your sleep period is 7-9 hours daily without disruptions.


  • Try to sleep at the same time every day.


  • Avoid drinks with caffeine prior to bedtime to improve sleep quality.


  • If working evening or nights, make sure that sleep has occurred within the last 8 hours before going to work.


  • If napping before work, make sure that the duration is less than 45 minutes or greater than 2 hours to allow for a complete sleep/wake cycle.


  • Make sure that the sleeping environment is comfortable, cool, dark and quiet.


  • Exercise regularly. Eat a balanced diet. Maintain a healthy weight.


  • If you have difficulty sleeping, keep a sleep diary and talk to your doctor.
