Next time bedtime rolls around and you’re not tired, don’t go to bed and lie there awake. You’ll just condition yourself to associate your bed with staring at the ceiling and frustration, instead of peaceful slumber. Instead, stay up half an hour – or an hour – later. But set your alarm to get up at the usual time the next day. According to the Annals Of Internal Medicine, that’ll help you get sleepy before you hit the hay. And then, because you missed 30 to 60 minutes of sleep the night before when you go to bed the next night, you should conk out right away.
