  1. There are several things you can do that will help you improve your sleep at night. For example:

    • If noises during the night wake you up or keep you from falling asleep, try using earplugs.
    • Try getting some aerobic exercise during the morning or afternoon. Avoid vigorous exercise just before bedtime, though.
    • Make sure your bed and pillows are comfortable so you are not tossing and turning throughout the night.
    • Take a hot bath a couple of hours before bedtime to relax your body.
    • Establish a bedtime ritual that relaxes you and reinforces the signal that you are ready for sleep.
    • Avoid caffeine after about midday.
