Rules to Sleep By

Some other things I have found that improve my sleep:

  • Have a regular sleep schedule and stick to it!
  • Exercise, as long as it’s not within a couple hours of bed.
  • Electric blankets, these are especially awesome on feverish nights when I have chills.
  • Avoid naps. Sometimes, when I crash, there is no way to avoid sleeping, it is just going to happen. But in general, my overall quality of life is much better since I have dramatically reduced my napping.
  • Putting a pillow under my ankles or letting my feet hang off the end of the bed really helps when my legs are aching.
