2. Plan Ahead
Think about how many hours of sleep you need every night to function optimally. Compare that amount with the current amount of sleep you get.
For example, if you like to get eight hours of sleep per night and only get six, plan to compensate for the sleep lack by allowing yourself extra time to rest. Go to bed two hours earlier than you normally do. You may benefit from taking a nap, however that may not be an option and it may interfere with your sleep at night.
Experiment. Do you sleep better if you go to bed earlier? Is rising later an option? Be creative.
