Turn the clock around at night

Avoid looking at the clock if you wake up in the middle of the night. It can cause anxiety.

 This is very difficult for most of us, so turn the clock away from your eyes so you would have to turn it to see the time. You may decide not to make the effort and go right back to sleep.

Start a relaxing bedtime routine

Do the same things each night to tell your body it’s time to wind down. This may include taking a warm bath or shower, reading a book, or listening to soothing music.

Relaxing activities done with lowered lights can help ease the transition between wakefulness and sleepiness.

Avoid bright light around the house before bed.

Using dimmer switches in living rooms and bathrooms before bed can be helpful. (Dimmer switches can be set to maximum brightness for morning routines.)
