SLEEP BETTER, LIVE LONGER

Here are some suggestions from Dr. David W. Shucard for getting a good night's sleep.

Try to keep on a regular sleeping and waking schedule, even on the weekends.

Even if you're not sleepy, try to rest in bed for at least seven hours a night.

You should not exercise for at least six hours before bedtime.

You should not eat a heavy meal within two hours of bedtime.

Avoid tobacco, caffeine or alcohol for two or three hours before bedtime.

Avoid daytime naps, which can upset sleeping patterns.
