Q. I'm having trouble sleeping and don't want to take pills. Do you have any suggestions?
Here are some pointers to help you get better sleep:
Ÿ Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. This will keep you in sync with your body's internal rhythm, which is affected by sunlight.
Ÿ Try to get some natural light in the afternoon each day.
Ÿ Don't nap too much.
Ÿ Exercise daily, but finish your workout at least three hours before bedtime.
Ÿ Don't drink beverages with caffeine late in the day.
