8 IDEAS FOR ENSURING ADEQUATE SLEEP:  Organize your life for sleep: Make sleep a priority!  Create the right space: Keep your room cool, quiet, and dark. Let in bright light in the morning to signal your body to wake up.  You can’t fake wake: No pills, vitamins or drinks can replace good sleep. (Also, caffeine close to bedtime can affect sleep.)  Keep it constant and create a bedtime ritual: Establish a bedtime and wake-time and stick to it.  Prepare your body: Don’t eat, drink, or exercise within a few hours of your bedtime. Stick to quiet, calm activities before bed and avoid electronics such as phones and tablets close to bedtime!  Leave stress out of it: Try keeping a diary or to-do lists to clear your mind before attempting to doze off.
