It’s important to develop healthy sleep habits and stick to them each night.

The National Sleep Foundation recommends these healthy sleep habits to help you wake up rested each morning:

* Establish a regular bedtime and wake-time schedule and follow it every day, even on weekends.

* Create a consistent and relaxing bedtime routine, and make sure your bedroom is comfortable, dark and quiet.

* Invest in a comfortable mattress and pillows.

* Don’t eat within two to three hours of bedtime, and avoid caffeine, alcohol and tobacco before going to sleep.

* Exercise regularly, but try to schedule your workout well before bedtime.
