Health Tip: Cutting Out Caffeine?

(HealthDay News) — If you’re not getting enough sleep, you’re not alone. But you don’t need to turn to caffeine to help you feel less groggy.

The National Sleep Foundation recommends:

  • Before bed avoid alcohol, which can affect sleep.
  • Set a sleep schedule, waking and going to sleep at the same time each day.
  • Skip the snooze button. Set the alarm for the time you truly need to wake up.
  • Open the curtains to let in natural sunlight as soon as you wake.
  • Get daily exercise.
  • Eat a nutritious, balanced breakfast.
