Sleep, Interrupted, is no Fun - Interruption Management

Go to bed when you're tired, not when you think you ought to. Let your body talk to you. It'll tell you when it's tired. The problem you've had in the past is that you have ignored the messages.

Once a week, get to bed by 9:00 p.m. Your body will thank you. Let yourself sleep for nine, ten hours, whatever it takes. Allow yourself at least one weeknight in which getting sleep is your only objective.


If you're kept awake by your spouse's snoring, or you're the one snoring, you need help. Get a snore control device like those available from airline shopper magazines. A small device attaches to your wrist, and whenever you’re snoring above a certain decibel, a gentle vibration breaks the pattern and helps you return to quiet sleep.

Moderate exercise a couple hours before retiring aids in getting sound sleep. If you are too active too close to retiring, you may take longer to relax enough to doze off.

Moderate intake of proteins, such as a glass of milk, also helps you sleep soundly.
