Common  Symptoms of Sleep Disorders:

  • Excessive daytime sleepiness or fatigue
  • Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Mood swings
  • Lack of energy
  • Depression
  • Exhaustion

Tips to Improve Sleep & Reduce Daytime Sleepiness:

  • Turn off devices at least an hour before bed, especially those that are held close to the face, such as a phone, tablet or laptop.
  • Sleep in a cool, dark room.
  • Do not let animals sleep on the bed.
  • Relax before bed, do not work until bedtime.  It is important to separate the work day and bedtime.
  • Exercise -- exercise improves sleep, but do not exercise too close to bedtime because the body needs time to cool down and relax after exercise.
  • Limit afternoon and nighttime caffeine.
  • Routine -- waking and going to sleep at the same time each day establishes a normal sleep schedule.
  • Avoid alcohol close to bedtime.
