Stressed out? Skip the late show

Getting enough sleep can help you handle the demands of daily life. For most adults, seven to eight hours a night is the right amount. If you're drowsy during the day, your bedtime routine may need a tuneup. Try these tips: 1. Don't go to bed hungry or stuffed. 2. Create a relaxing bedtime ritual, such as taking a bath. 3. Limit daytime naps. 4. Keep your bedtime consistent, including on weekends. 5. Jot down worries and set them aside for the next day.
