Your brain is very active during sleep. A good night’s sleep helps improve memory and the ability to learn new information. Develop a healthy sleep routine:
- Go to bed at the same time every night
- Avoid naps during the day
- Limit stimulants like coffee, cola, and even chocolate, and avoid them entirely after 4:00 pm
- Avoid large meals or strenuous exercise close to bedtime
Talk to your doctor if you have trouble falling asleep, wake too early in the morning, sleep too much for two weeks or more, or if your sleep is chronically poor. Loud snoring may also be a sign of a more serious sleep disorder that may need treatment.
