Sleep hygiene

Non-medical treatment options are often referred to as sleep hygiene. Sleep hygiene is the practice of behavioral habits that offer the maximum potential for restorative and sound sleep. Good sleep hygiene practices include:

  • Avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol use before bedtime. Some studies have shown that caffeine consumed early in the day can have an effect on the ability to fall asleep at night.
  • Have and adhere to a regular bedtime and waking schedule
  • Maintain a comfortable sleep environment, including a comfortable temperature
  • Do not lye in bed awake, worrying about not sleeping (or anything else negative). This produces anxiety that can actually make the problem worse.
  • Get regular daily exercise (it is recommended that individuals avoid exercise two hours prior to bedtime)
