Almost everyone experiences an occasional night of lost sleep.  It is a natural,perhaps adaptive, response to acute stress.


If you are having trouble falling at night avoid naps in the early afternoon or evenings.


No matter how poorly you have sleep the night before, always set your alarm to arise at thesame time each morning.


Regular exercise can be an effective aid to sleep.  It releases engery and mental tensions.  It is better not to exercise
strenuously just before bedtime.


Occasional noises form aircraft, street, or highway disturbs sleep even in people who do not awake an who cannot remember the
noise in the morning.  These sleep disturbances can reduce restful sleep.  People who sleep near excessive noise should try
heavy curtains in their bedrooms or ear plugs to protect the amount of restful sleep they get.
