Your behaviors can greatly affect your sleep and can contribute to sleepiness. Your actions throughout the day and more importantly before bedtime can make it difficult to fall asleep. Your daily routine, including how you schedule your day, what you eat and drink, even the medications you take, and how you choose to spend your evening can impact your quality of sleep. Sleep specialists recommend that you follow healthy sleep habits including keeping a consistent sleep schedule, get up at the same time every day, limit exposure to light in the evenings, avoid consuming caffeine or alcohol before bedtime, and try to get at least seven hours of sleep a night.
