5. Avoid napping too late in the day
Be cautious about napping during the day. It can be a great way to recharge or catch up on sleep but if you nap too late in the day you may have trouble sleeping at night. If a nap is necessary, keep it to less than 30 minutes in the early afternoon.
If your evening television vigil often ends with you snoring on the sofa, beware! Fight the urge to nod off. If it’s near bedtime go to bed. If it’s still early get up and do something mildly reviving.
Pack your workout gear and make your healthy lunch for tomorrow, call your mom, put away the dishes. That late night nap will cut the edge off your fatigue just enough to leave you staring at the ceiling at bedtime.
