10 Tips on How to Keep a Regular Sleep Schedule

Julia DeBald

1. Set an alarm for the same time every day!

Waking up and starting your day at an appropriate hour can predict how productive you will be.

2. Avoid taking naps during the day!

Sleeping at odd hours can disrupt your sleep patterns and throw your body off schedule.

3. Avoid caffeine and sugar in the evening hours!

Eating and drinking things that are high in these substances can keep you awake for several hours and prevent you from falling asleep at your normal time.

4. Exercise regularly, but not right before bedtime!

Exercising during the day can help increase sleep duration and put you into a deeper REM cycle.

5. Go to bed at the same time every night!

Eventually, your body will naturally get tired at the same time each day, allowing you to fall asleep faster.

6. Make sure you get 8-10 hours of sleep a night!

The more sleep you get, the better your body will function throughout the day and the more energy you will have to focus on the things you need to do.
